'92 Mustang - Irregular Idle - Multiple Starts

Discussion in 'Fox 5.0 Mustang Tech' started by DMK's 5.0, Jun 18, 2012.

  1. Hi guys,

    New to Stangnet... Love the answers I've found so far!

    I have a 92 Mustang that is having some irregular idle issues/start-ups...

    Usually, in the morning when the engine needs to warm up, it'll take 2-3 starts to get the motor to balance out and idle regularly. It doesn't die on me once I start driving - it's just the initial start-up that doesn't seem to be as smooth.

    I'm thinking its a sensor communication issue?? Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas!?!?

  2. See the "Surging Idle Checklist” for help with all your idle/stall problems. You can guess at the problem and throw parts at it, or you can use the checklist to help you find the problem quickly and inexpensively. The checklist is right here in the Stangnet 5.0 Tech forum and you don’t have navigate to some other unknown web site. It‘s free and doesn’t cost anything: at last count there were more than 103,000 visits and still climbing

    The quick and easy way to dump the codes is in there too, and all you need to do it is a paper clip! The first two posts contain all the fixes & updates. At last count there were 24 possible causes and fixes for surging idle/stall problems. I continue to update it as more people post fixes or ask questions.
