I agree, probably IAC or a MAP sensor, they're really common problems, especially on fords (but then again, so is everything), but it really could be anything... won't know without the obd code

Autozone couldnt do the codes where should he bring it, they said only 95 and up so he has to go to a shop i guess right or are there other places??

advance/discount auto parts (if you have one) usually will for obd1. purchase of your own code reader for an obd1 is fairly cheap too.

stopped up cat would do it, would cause a light. engine misfire would do it, would trip a light. a number of sensors i can think of would do it and trip a light. stop guessing!!!!!! this site is for honest help. If you like throwing money a parts to solve your problem good for you.
