It might be the idle air control valve. It is about a $40.00 part. It is a cylinder shaped unit bolted down with 2 bolts with 2 wires attached, located between the air intake and the throttle body.

it could also be just a simple tune up. try replacing the plugs and coil packs/ wires. (i forgot what Ford used then, i believe there coil packs.)

How do you stop rough idling and sputtering on a 92 Pontiac firebird?

Could be a number of things. Start by performing any maintenance items that are due and listed in you owner's manual. If you have not done so, replace all vacuum hoses, including the brake booster hose. Check the booster for a cracked or leaking diaphragm. Replace the hoses one at a time to avoid getting confused. If it idles rough but runs good under acceleration, then a vacuum leak is probable.

What would cause a 1997 Ford Escort to run rough when idling?

The most common cause of rough idling would be a bad or clogged fuel injector. Also look for the hose on your EGR valve. They tend to come off in hot weather. If the hose comes off the engine will definitely run rough. I had to put a small hose clamp on mine to keep it from comming off. Spiritchsr1

What if your 1997 ford expedition 5 4 eddie bauer is idling rough and really low i was told i need a mass airflow sensor but what else could it be?

It could be a couple of things... First thing is have your computer read by a scanner. Auto Zone will read codes for FREE. And go from there. I had a similar problem on my 1998 Ford Expedition XLT, and it ended been bad spark plugs. And since I have the 4.6L on mines I had to change plugs and wires. Problem was fix. The 4.6L only has 2 coil packs too... But, since you have the 5.4L it could also be bad coil packs... There 8 coil packs on the 5.4L.
