The problem you describe could be result of a few different things; however, I would first check your vehicle's Idle Air Control (IAC) sensor/motor. This sensor/motor is located on your vehicles, throttle body and is easy to access. The purpose of this sensor is to control the car's idle under various operating conditions including ambient temperature. In order for it to function correctly, the internal components must be clean (meaning, little or no carbon build up) and it must be undamaged. Sometimes the IAC can be cleaned; however, if this cleaning procedure is not properly done, the IAC can become damaged. This sensor is also sometimes called the "Cold Start" sensor. A new IAC will cost $50-$100. My guess is your IAC needs to be cleaned or replaced. Good Luck!

Idleling is normal. When accelarating the car is slugish.when decelarating to stop at a low rpm engine dies. This only happens when you are stopping or driving from a high speed to low speed pr stopping

Need new code for my door, and it also seems like its idleling a little too high when im taking off,and i also need a clip for my passenger visor,a piece broke off


the permanent code is on the plastic card in your owner manual packet. If you don't have that, a Lincoln delaer can extract it from the module for about 1/2 hour labor time.
many Aviator parts are common with Explorer/Mountaineer.

My 2000 gmc sierra z-71 has started idleling at about 1300 rpm after driving for a while. when i turn it off and restarted it would idle fine for a while then start idleing high again. it is getting to...


I assume the check engine/ service soon light is on. Commonly the MAP sensor is the culprit, but can be TPS, CSS, even a buggy O2 sensor. Only way to be sure? (light or not) is to scan it.
