if that doesent work u could also check your idle air sensor.ive changed a few during the years an my other trucks and they had the same symtoms u descibed.sometimes cleaning the idle air sensor fixes the problem for a while.its a cheap way of checking your idle air sensor.

you may also want to check for vacume leaks,the hoses are rubber and crack and split open,also check gasket under the throttle body.

@ Papa Hey I have the same problem on a 02 Ranger Manual 3.0L - it reves high when I engage the clutch adn only comes down after I stop?? Will this work for my vehicle also?? Thanks
