Having problems with your 1999 Ford F150 Regular Cab ?

What will make my 99 Ford F150 motor shutter and almost die at idle?

\015 I had a service engine soon message which told me my EGR vavle was bad. i have replaced the EGR valve and the motor is still stalling out sometimes and even dies at other times. When it does "catch" air or regain itself, it makes the RPMs jump up.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

2004 ford f150 lariat triton 5.4 liter v8 idles low and wants to die at stop lights and dies in reverse. And when it dies the low oil pressure light comes on I just had the oil changed and it started doing this after I got it back. It did this about 2 years ago and I had to have my motor rebuilt. I had them put a new battery in it also because it had a bad cell.

My 1985 ford f150 has a three wire alternator. Two wires are hooked up but the third is missing. The battery will not charge, and if I put a good battery on and start it, when I pull off the battery cable the motor dies. I had the alternator tested, and it tested good. The two wires that are hooked up are the red post that is held on by a nut and the orange post that just pushes on. The one that is missing is the white post. I can make a wire to fit on the post, but I do not know where it connec

My 2002 Ford Taurus will shutter and die when running the air conditioner and sitting idle at a stop sign or stop light.

I have a 2001 Ford Escort ZX2 2.0 ZTEC motor and it idles very poorly to the point of dieing. The RPM's drop below 1000 at idle and then jump up to 1200 and drop again to about 800 or 900. The only codes that I have been able to pull so far are for the idle air controller which I replaced, and it still is saying that the car is running lean could small vacuum leaks at or around the purge canister be causing the issue. I am stumped and need help? !!!

My 99 Ford Diesel pickup will often die at idle.Usually as I slow down for a light or to make a turn onto a street.Sometimes it will idle for a bit then just die.Not all the time but often.If I add some injector cleaner to the tank and make a fairly long drive it will usually act better for a week or so.Also seems to be much worse in wet weather.Any ideas?
