I've had my EF for about 6 months now and ever since I have had it when I dry steer with it in Drive the car idles rough and drops RPM and then kicks back up.

So far I've replaced - Coil Pack, Spark Plugs, Leads, Idler Stepper. I've also tried to see if theirs any vacuum leaks but not really sure what I'm looking at or for.

is it a 6 cylinder? they have a pressure switch on the steering rack to bump up idle when you dry steer. it could be faulty. If it's an 8. disregard what I said

on the steering rack. on the drivers side. next to were the lines go into it and the steering shaft. you'll need a short 9/16 open end spanner. I bought a cheap brand one and cut it in half. makes it easy

+1 for pressure switch. If you're lucky, it might just be disconnected.
