Ok guys I got a problem with the piece. It starts and runs fine.
But when you give it gas and then let off it almost dies for a second and then it shakes a bit and idles fine again.

Any idea what could be the problem??

Its a 1992 V6

change the fuel filter. and fill it up with gas and put some fuel injector cleaner in it. Might help the problem. Make sure and use some good fuel

It might be the TPS sensor. unplug it to throw the computer in defualt and see if it runs better. It won't run perfect but the stumble should be gone. I've had this problem in the past.

Yeah I would agree that it sounds like the TPS. Those are easy to check with an ohm meter. Might also be the air flow sensor. Same thing unplug it and see if the problem goes away. Or better yet I will trade you a ford which I know what is wrong with it.. LOL...

hey mine was doing that for a while too it would also bounce at idle. it was a vacuum leak. check all the hoses. hope this helps. oh yeah also it might be that Air is coming into the intake past the Mass flow. make sure thats all nice and sealed up tight. hope this helps

get a can of carb cleaner and spray it on the hoses and check for vacuum leaks that way.

Ok I just figured out that it doesnt really do it for the first few minuets when you start it. Its after it gets warmed up that it starts doing it.

I opened the MAS and everything looked and moved ok.

Well I drove it to the desert last night and it was still doing it but then later in the night I noticed it wasent doing it anymore. Works fine now!

So I guess it just needed a good little beeting!
