Did you replace the IAC (idle air conrtol)?

Best Answer

Yes and the tps and the temp and air temp. When I first replaced them it idle good for about 3 weeks. The reason I changed them is it was not idling right when I bought it. I have only had it for 2 months.


Did you buy a genuine Ford IAC or an aftermarket?

It is genuine ford. Hay could the EGR be doing this. Or could the oxygen senser. The exhaust pipe was broken there when I bought it. And have wondered if it might have done something to it.
