      '99 explorer 4.0 SOHC automatic 4x4 almost 200,000 miles. I just bought it and love it so far...drives great...squeaks a decent amount on the front when i drive but great ride and pretty good power. It will idle at about...maybe 750-850 rpms for maybe 30 seconds right after i start it but any other time i idle itll be about 550-600 rpms..itll stall in any gear...drive, reverse, park. Ive already changed my air filter today so maybe 25 miles on that and cleaned the throttle body out best i could. Need help quick!

      Stand on it!
      Could be a vacuum leak, check all of the rubber hoses that attach to the intake and pcv system, that's an easy first step. Welcome to the forum!

      it wont hurt plastic parts... on the other hand if u soak them in a bottle of cleaner it might melt the plastic but a quick spray around everything wont do anything and will evaporate quicker than u can find a puddle of the cleaner... its the oldest trick in the book to find a vacuum leak...

      Welcome to this forum! I've moved your thread into the stock 95-01 section. Brake cleaner is flammable so use caution. It sounds like the IAC as previously suggested.
