To start this off I will be posting to many, many forums my problem. First off,

Heads: Aluminum Gt-40 SVO
Rockers: Stock
Intake Lower: Gt-40

Fuel Lines and Tank: Stock

Problem(s):

First two problems interchange but first problem is more present:

1) Surging Idle ( 1500 rpms to shut off ):

When cruising at rpms higher then 1500, letting of the gas and pushing the clucth, the car’s idle will drop till it cuts off.

If cruising at the same rpm as above then slowing the car down to where it should it, then 50% of the time, it will stay there or it may surge till it cuts off.

If at idle the car will idle if cold but after a few minutes the car will start to surge till it cuts off.


Parts Tested To Find Problem:

Throttle Postion Sensor: Set to .97 Volts

Parts Tested But Not Sure If Bad:

Stock Mass Air Sensor: 12 Volts to + and - Wire, 12 volts to 3rd wire,
Signal Wire is the problem wire. It is suppose to stay at around the same idle at idle. It changes erratically at idle and when the throttle is pushed. Please give opinion.

Vaccum Lines:

All visible vaccum lines have been checked with cleaner to check for vaccum leaks. Advise if all lines should just be replaced.


Parts Replaced To Fix Problem:

Idle Air Control

2) Hanging Idle:

When starting the vehicle it will hang to around 2000 rpms then drop slowly to 1100 rpms.

As I push the throttle to gain speed then shift, it stays at that rpm for 2 to 3 seconds then drops to around 1100 rpms.

3) Whining/Whistle Noise:

Vehicle as a whining/whistle noise coming from the engine compartment at idle and cruise. Noise does increase as rpms increase. All gaskets and suppected hoses have been sprayed for leaks.

Parts Tested To Find Problem:

Vaccum Lines/Gaskets

Parts Tested But Not Sure If Bad:

Vaccum Lines:

All visible vaccum lines have been checked with cleaner to check for vaccum leaks. Advise if all lines should just be replaced.

Not the Problem:

Pulleys

My Note:

Please post on the thread or send me an email at [email protected]. I need help with this problem really bad. This is my daily driver and I have no clue what else to do. I need you to list what you think I should replace, test, or do to find the answer to my problem(s). Thank you so much everyone.

car is speed density? or has it been converted to mass air? If so a custom tune may be needed...

To 2Manystangs:

Car is not speed density. It has been converted to mass air. I have been thinking of a tune. Look back at the MAF sensor signal and see if you think it needs a new MAF.

Thanks.
