Our Escape would idle low, then it got to point it would die when you stopped.

Revving + holding brake was only way to keep it running.

Took it to fellow R/C airplane pilot, he doubles as a S.C. State HWY DEPT mechanic.

When I got to his house, he was repairing a tractor.

Told him my sob story. Escape was still barely running, I raised the hood. And He said, (and I quote).

"It could be several things. The IDLE AIR CONTROL(IAC)", as he pointed to it, and emphasied it with a sharp rap, using the wrench in his hand.

It straightened right up, and ran darn good!

That was a 15/16 Craftsman wrench, box end, kinda a medium rap.

We removed and cleaned it.

I was sorta "Skeered", it's belongs to the Evil Female that I'm hitched to!

YES, I visited parts store and replaced it.

I was really EZ to remove, to clean or to replace.

Hope this helps
