Will not idle


Asked by Aug 06, 2016 at 04:42 PM about the 2003 Ford F-150 XLT Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

F150 with 4.6L motor will not idle when I turn on the motor.  If I hold down the gas pedal and keep my foot on the brake it will run, otherwise it will stop.  I suspect either the IAC. It surely is not safe to drive.  Any comments please...
