How many miles on the truck? After all that work was done was the throttle body cleaned and recalibrated? If not, a dirty t.body will cause your problem.

Ford Mechanic: Pete, Mechanic replied 7 months ago

Ok First thing,make sure you have no vacuum leaks. Clean the throttle bore with carb cleaner, you have to remove all carbon and grime from the throttle bore and throttle blade. Next disconnect the battery. With the battery disconnected jump the battery terminals,( cables,) together for 30 seconds. Reconnect and start the engine. Turn off all accessories, start the engine and let it idle for 15 to 20 minutes. Don't put it in gear or turn on any lights or accessories. The idle might go up and down by itself thats normal. Next take it for a test drive for 5 mins. See what happens. You can keep me up to date if you like.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
