High Idle

Asked by May 18, 2011 at 11:56 AM about the 1990 Ford E-150 Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had the engine completely rebuilt and now it won't get out of
high idle.  1990 Straight -six.  Remains in high idle even after
pressing gas pedal to the floor and releasing it.  Any suggestions,
please?
