Engine Mechanical problem
2005 Ford Escape 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 104000 miles
The car idles fine when in park and neutral and in the city it runs fine, idles normally but when I drive for miles at a steady MPH and come to a stop the car idle gradually slows and stalls in a matter of a few seconds. I can keep the car from stalling by keeping the rpms around 1,000 with my foot on the brake it will adjust and will be fine until I start driving again, stop, and it will stall again. I've read up on both valves and it sounds like a problem with both or it could be the pcv valve which is noted in the maintenance manual to replace at 100,000 miles. Should I start changing parts or is one more likely over the other?
