Idle control valve?

Ok so my Bronco surges up & down when I start it unless I punch the throttle & then the last time I took it out it ran great, but when I got home I could barely get it parked!
Makes me wonder if it being warm vs cold makes a difference?

Every time I put it in gear it pretty much stalled as I was backing the boat into place.

I'm thinking Idle Control valve?

I've sprayed it before years ago & IIRC it helped but not I wonder if I should just replace it or might it be something else? ( Of course this rig is rarely driven & so years ago means maybe 1000 miles ago? if that? )

& I'll be wasting time & money?

Id remove it with the two 8mm bolts and unplug the one plug. Check out how dirty it is in there. It should move reasonably easy as I remember. if not, get some sensor safe throttle body cleaner and let'r rip tator chip.... reinstall and test. don't forget the gasket before installing. if you lose it, rip it or misplace it...make one from a cereal box.
IIRC those IAC are in the $35 range...unless its for a 6cly...and it jumps to around $100. So that's why I would try cleaning it first as that is the symptom of a sticking IAC. There may be other things that could cause it, but this is the easy check and its cheap to try.
You have any CEL? or cracked vacuum lines?

Thanks Tom!
I knew I could count on you!

I never actually removed it last time I sprayed it.
& love the cereal box gasket tip!

I'll have to try that, I'm starting to wanna get back into giving Blanco Love.

I've called some paint shops & the Prices are nuts!

So I'm thinking of doing it with spray cans & colors sanding it.
I listed the Ranchero last night & with in minutes got 2 hits.

One guy might come see it tonight.

I plan to put some of the money into the Bronco.

yeah, its not a tough thing to do...and its great when it fixes it. I think when they sit awhile the excess fuel crud gets gummed up and can cause fluxuation at idle. I hate to say get a new one and try it because in case its not the root cause of the issue.

nothing wrong with the rattle can paint method. Some really nice looking finishes have been produced with a rattle can. Not really cheaper, but being able to do the job in stages is worth something. I have thought about that type of job for my F150....mostly because I drive it almost every day. But anytime I can I purchase body panels that are the right color. If I can find a passenger door, and both fenders I will do it that way.

Edit...if you try to call me if you have issues while doing this...leave a message so my phone might notify me. the service here lately has totally sucked. I often don't get missed call notifications...but messages will come through within 2 hours with no missed calls showing. fun huh?

Well the phone quotes I got must be more expensive than a rattle can?
I think the cheapest was around $1,000.00

& touch up when it gets scratched would be much easier this way.

Ok I tried being lazy with just using SeaFoam & that seemed to do nothing so I took it apart & lucky me saved the gasket & sprayed & scrubbed it well & at first it seemed not much better but once warmed up it sounded like a sexy purr.

I cant wait to take it out tomorrow morning fishing & then just keep driving it for the fun of it to get it all warmed up like what happened before?

Wish me luck!

that is good to hear. Hope it went well.

I found out I'm more allergic to bee stings than I previously believed. Pretty potent for such a little critter.

Anyways.... Yes its been running better yet today when I got back from fishing at the lake & stopped at the stop sign at the end of the fwy off ramp it stalled?

But then I drove it the 1/2 mile home from there in low to keep it reving higher & it never stalled again, even while backing my boat into its spot?

Oh & for the bee's it seems I also as I've aged become more allergic to bees.

I carry an Bee Pen in my work bag & Camper & etc just to be safe.

are you certain that you don't have a vacuum leak somewhere? hoses are at the age where you can look at them cross eyed and have them break. Just another thought.

I will need to look into a bee pen. Sure would have sucked to be on the bike somewhere when it happened.

Your probably right, thanks for the tip, I'll make sure not to cross my eyes while looking at them.
