Bad Ideling,help!!!!

Hi All
I Have A 93 Ranger 4.0 It Runs fine Except On Idle.Ive cleaned The Iac Valve Out But Its Not Made Any Difference.Can The Pcv Valve Cause Rough Ideling,They Used To Cause Problems On The Old Escorts As I Remember,Ive Cleaned It But Thats Not Helped Either,Any Ideas Before We Get To Changing Inlet Manifold Gasket,Oh Ive Checked All The Vac Pipes For Splits Or Leaks But Ive Found Nothing.

if you pull your number 5 spark plug out and it looks fuzzy or coated in oil you may have a loose intake manifold. if you go to the tech page on that link i sent ya in the pm it goes into detail.

My 97 4.0 ohv was doing the same thing and it took me forever to realise what it was. Check ur plenum gasket. Mine was loose and causing a surge at idle. take carb cleaner and spray around the bottem of the plenum. if it revs up u have found ur problem. hopefuly this saves u some headach. and that gasket is easy and quick to change
