I have replaced the plugs, wired(delco factory) cap, roter, Iac valve, idel selonid. I have checked for vacume leaks at the intake manifoul using either at the gaskets. It only happens when engine reaches full temp. When I come to a stop it will idle fine for about 8 to 10 seconds after tack lowers to about 600 rpm's. Help would be appreciated. My mechanic told me to use injector cleaner. I have tried this with no help.
Do you

Get some choke cleaner and clean the throttle plate on both sides with the engine off. They will gum up and cause this. Also clean the hole for the iac. It willstart hard after doing this. Try that first. Then check the fuel pressure

Recleaned the throttle plates both sides witc cleaner and a brush. Also cleaned the hole for the iac. Still no difference. Could the iac valve be bad. I had replaced it about 6 months ago with the throttle position sensor. Also replaced the EGR I don't know what else to replace except the truck. If you have any suggestions I will try. Thank You for your time.

Oen thing to check is fuel pressure. You havent said what it is in your first question so i'll have to give you a cople of ones here. If it has TBI on it then it's 9-13 psi if lower than that it may give you trouble. If it's a a 7.4L it shoudl be 26-32 pdi. Also replace the fuel filter first if the pressure is low as it may be that and hard telling when that was replaced. Aalso check the evap cannister valve to see if it is open as it shold only work above 30 mph. You will feel vacuum out both lines if it is. If you use an injector cleaner then try sea foam or one made by Chevron. The Chevron one to use is thepro type andis usually over $10 a bottle.

I checked the canister purge valve no vacume at idle. The fuel pump was replaced about 6 months ago along with a new fuel fliter. I'll have to take it back to the shop to have the fuel pressure tested. The truck runs great at any speed. Could my problem be a fuel pressure regulator. If so where is it located and is it complated to replace.
Thank You for all your responses.

Yes it cold be the regulator but you need to do a fuelpressure check to find out or not. You have to let it sit with pressure on it and it depends whether or not you have tbi or port fuel where it's located.

The purge valve should have vacuum coming out of one line at least.

I have the TBI. I checked the vacume line at the canister when the engine reached normal temp. No vacume at idel. I had replaced the IAC a while back along with the TPS. I have also replaced the EGR. To do a fuel pressure test I do not think I have a test port. So I will have to disconnect one of the fuel lines. I'm not sure which is supply and which is return. Am I correct in saying the pressure tester has to be connected to the supply line and that line must return to the TBI to complete the flow of fuel to return to the tank. I really appreciate you taking your time to help me, Thank You

Oknow that I know what you have check the gasket under the TBI unit, they have a nasty habit of blowing out and causing vacuum leaks. The hose form the engine should have vacuum and probably doesn't do to eitehr a plugged line or sucked together because it's soft or the gasket is blown out there.

Ok I will check both. If I spray some either around the base of the TBI the RPM'S should increase if the gasket is bad or should I just replace the gasket. I know I should have a constant vacume when I disconnect the hose from the purge valve. But am I correct in saying I should not have vacume at the canister at an idle. Again Thank You for trying to solve my problem.

No the one line coming frm the engine will have vacuum. The valve opens to suck the fule mix out of ht ecannister after 30 mph. And yes if you sspray ether around the base tehre will be a rpm change up or down. I wouldn't reccomend using ether as it drys the wasll of the cylinder and is not a good idea. Choke cleaner is much better.

Ok, Thank You again. I checked with carb cleaner around the base of the TBI and all vacume lines. No change. I pulled the vacume line from the MAP sensor and and had good vacume. I pulled the vacume line for the purge valve and had no vacume from the line from the basr of the TBI to the purge, which I think should be constant. I don't think that is my problem. Hod do I know if the plunger from the iac valve is set correctly? Thank You.

Clean out the line going to your prge valve as it may be soft and closing or plugged, tbi units will do that as well. Also check yoru pcv line for the same thing. The iac valve should set to proper distance when you drive over 30 mph. That is assuming that you matched it up with teh other valve for length when you installed it.

I have checked all the lines. All seem to be ok. I was concerned why I did not have constant vacume in the line from the TBI baseplate to the purge valve, I did set the new iac plunger the same as the one I removed. Do you think it could be play inside the distributer shaft. Or a modgle breaking down when it gets hot. I'm leaning away from a fuel npressure regulatio because ti starts with no problem every time. I will try the seafoam if I can figure out what it is. I will look it up. Thank You very much for your time helping me. If I keep replacing things I will eventually find the problem.

Why don'tyou go to where the purge valve hookup uis an seeif you can clean that out so you do get vacuum. If it idles ok while in gear then just leaveit alone. It could be the things you are talking about but if thereis no problem other than dropping down a little bit then don't worry about it. As long as it doesn't stall and you aren't complaining about that. Just clean the pipe out asit may have carbon in it. Yo don'tneed totake the tbi off and if any drops in the intake it won't hurt anything if it gets sucked through the engine.
