Thats what it looks like. I don't know where it's located on your truck, but most are right by the throttle. You can't miss it....

Actually their right on the side of the throttle body...

should be attached to the throttle body or right next to it in the intake stread.

Just wait Jeremy said.



Sometimes...cleaning them doesn't help. If it don't help...buy a brand new one. And I suggest any engine electrical component be OEM FORD.

Have you checked/changed out your MAF sensor.

I just had a terrible time diagnosong a very bad idle (especially when cold), that was worse when cold and seemed to get better after the engine warmed up but was still noticeably stumbling/missing.

Driveability was'nt really a problem however but sometimes I could tell it was missing. I actually removed the MAF sensor from the housing and cleaned the element with some carb cleaner and it cleared it right up.

I can't believe how much havoc that stupid sensor caused. I went through fuel injectors, coils, plugs, wires, DPFE sensor, checked egr valve function, replaced ground/starter/battery cables...........in short order a nightmare!

Just trying to help.
