IAC idle valve

Hi, post from UK Explorer owner/driver. Lovely motor. 1977. Mine has 4 liter
SOHC engine. V8 was not shipped to UK as far as I can tell.
Very poor tickover when cold. Found a couple of IAC valves on eBay from 5
liter v8 engines.
Question, Is the valve from the V8 the same as the valve on the V6?

thanks
Ian Lowrie

Ian, I don't know the answer, but I can tell you how to find it.

Go to a USA auto parts store. Some that come to mind are, NAPA, Autozone,
Advanced Auto and Pep Boys

Go through their procedure for ordering the part and stop when you get to
their part number, stock number or other identifying number. Do this for
your vehicle and then for the ones that you see on eBay. That will tell you
if it is the same for both years, engines etc.

If you go the eBay route, be sure that the IAC is "new in the box" or "NIB"

Ian:
The Borg/Warner part # for the V6 SOHC engine is 31039. It' different for
the V8

Ian,
I think I know the eBay seller you mention. Be aware that he is a breaker's
yard. However, I have bought things from him and his shipping charges to the
UK are very fair. Try asking him for the correct part for your Ex. - he
answers questions quite quickly (if you make allowances for the different
time zone). Still, I would strongly recommend getting a NEW IAC valve,
whatever the cost. Try some US based parts suppliers such as Ford Parts
Network for international shipping after checking the Ford UK price. It
might not be as bad as you think...
