    Rough, loping idle and random attempts to die

    Hey guys I've got 1995 5.0 GT. I've had it for 2 years and it's always had a bit of a rough idle, but it's gotten progressively worse. When I say rough idle I mean that when I start it the RPMs rev up to about 1200, then drop to 1000, then drop to about 750. It then proceeds to repeat this...

    Engine Rough Idle at Start, Possible CMCV Vacuum Leak

    Hi, I have a 2015 salvaged coyote in a 67 mustang running on the control pack. Everything is up and running, but it seems to have a rough idle at start. The idle continues to be rough until I rev the engine and it settles down to normal at around 1000rpm for about 5 seconds, after 5 seconds...

    1995 GT 302 5.0 with rough idle and weird behavior (with video)

    So I recently got this manual 1995 GT with only 44k original miles, the car is great overall. BUT, I couldn't help but notice it has a rough idle (the engine shakes considerably but nothing too crazy) and can't maintain stable RPM's at idle (altough you can barely notice the difference, the...

    Engine Vacuum problem

    I’ll make this as short as possible. Basically I plugged off all my unused vacuum ports on the “vacuum tree” and it bogs down like it wants to shut off once it’s warmed up. But it runs good at idle. But if I pull a couple of them off it doesn’t shut off but idles down a lot and runs worse. Any...

In the past month it has started running real rough and my dad and I can't figure out the problem. When I first crank it and drive it it will be okay for about 10...

    89 5.0l Iac Valve Operation

    Trying to troubleshoot 89 5.0L with rough idle when first started, down to the IAC valve. Pulled this valve and attempted to clean it, but looked clean already. My question is: how much travel does a correctly functioning IAC have? This is a basic two port spool valve but, while the spool in...

    Idle Surging

    I have a 1990 GT convertible and the idle was surging after a few minutes of running so I did some research and replaced the IAC valve and when I started the car it ran great for about 10 minutes then it started to surge again so I replaced the TPS sensor as well and adjusted it to about .96 and...

    1991 Gt Foxbody Rough Idle/stalls

    So my 91 GT has been having some idling issues lately. Whenever I start the car it either stalls straight away if I dont step on the gas right away, or the RPMs will just jump around and it will not stay steady, and the eventually stall out. This past summer I took it on a pretty far road trip...
