Hi, I have an 89' Econoline E150 with a 5.0L V8. I took this off the road
sometime back and would start it up every now and then just to let the
engine run. Sometime during this period something happened and now the van
won't keep idle. It'll start and run so long as you give it a lil gas but
if you let off it dies. Any ideas? Thanks!
Yo! Clean tha IAC. It is best to remove it from the side of
the throttle body. Let the valve end soak for a while in
throttle body or carb cleaner. You may need a small brush
to help clean it. A good aerosol throttle body cleaner
should be used to clean the inside bore of the throttle body
while you are at it. Might not fix it but, it's a cheap way
to start and has a good chance of doing the job.
