Re: 1996 E350 460 /7.5 engine rough idle/surging idling by Peter
Post New Message Hey Jordan,

I had a similar issue and it was a simple fix. Carbon had built up on the air intake valve opening, which is on top of the throttle body. This caused the surging since the valve couldn't fully close. Check on YouTube for videos related to this so you know if the symptoms are the same. Anyway, you'll have to unhook your battery so as to not negatively affect the sensors in the air intake, which means you'll need to sync your computer again once you connect the battery again.

If that's not the problem, you'll have lost nothing. Anyway, common problem...
