welcome mar10s!

Ironically, I think we actually covered the last issue- How to drive your Explorer on Mars- last week. Great timing! :D

I replaced idle air control valve and throttle position sensor,it made an improvement, it no longer dies but it still revs up and down but does not rev to 3000 rpm like it did before.

No I have not checked intake gaskets,thats next on my list.:exp:
