here is my problem my wife has a 91 ford f250 and for about a month now I have been having problems with the idle. when you start it up it will warm up and then start reving high. I dont have a clue as to what to look for because I dont know fords. does anyone here have some idea's as to what I can look for or do to get it to idle right.

please need to get this fixed

the way I see it is this

tomorrow if I am smiling means I fixed it. :) but if I am roasting mellows out front it means it's still FU#$ and I added a gallon of gas :(

with just this ford I have learned I will never ever buy or get given to me free another FORD.................................

Well it did not work. :( I hate the stupid thing now. so I went and bought a new idle air control and I throw the FU$% thing in and see where I stand.

Well I dont stand behind ford. so does anyone else have a better idea as I replaced the idle air control and it's still revs like FUCK it started out good but as soon as I jump in it and test drove the thing I got up to lafarge concret here in mission and it started all over again so I am back to square 1

how high is it idleing?

Possibly a vacume leak. Providing no one has messed with the throtle screw, if you take the iac off, plug the holes, with your fingers if youy have to, while someone starts it up. If it still idles to high, it has a vacume leak. If it idles around 500 rpm it is a computer problem or a bad iac.

ok pumpkin I did what you asked me to try and it revs fine but low. the IAC I just bought about 2 hours ago or so can someone here tell me the way to reset the computer to see if that is the problem???????

dont know if this will help you any, but i pulled the complete wiring harness out of my old 89 f250 2wd with a 6 in it, if you need any of the computer stuff, you can take it, only catch is you got to take the whole jumble of mess!
