Hi fellow ford fans. Just bought myself an EF series 2. 5Ltr auto. only problem is an erratic idle. Tacho goes from 400 to 700 RPM up and down constantly. Sounds like a real lumpy cam but im sure it dont have one :shock: . Also when powering on, she pings a bit. Any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks heaps
Dazza

has the battery been disconnected recently, think the computer needs to relearn, let it idle at operating temp, then idle with air con on, then do the same in drive with the park brake on, then let it sit for a while. fixed mine.
