2003 Excursion 6.0 (start-up)

Hello to all!!

I am new to this forum and I had a question to ask. I justed purchased a 2003 Ford Excursion 6.0 Eddie Baurer 4x4, the body is amazing as well as the interior. The engine has 125K miles and so far I have been extremely happy. I had before a Nissan Titan crew cab and let me say it is night and day!

My question is when I start the engine up, it starts up fine and then it revs up to 1K rpm and it stays there for a minute or so. However, in some case it does not rev up and I begin to put the car in drive or reverse and then it revs up, causing the suv to shoot forward.

Is this normal or should I look into it? I ran a report fro the dealer and all looks good.

Thanks!

How long after startup does the idle ramp up to 1k rpm's? When you touch the brake pedal does it drop down to a normal rpm like 700 or so?

Hmmm...I would say after couple of seconds it begins to rev up and when I tap the brake it does nothing.

When I begin to drive and several yards or so later it begins to drop.

Hmmm interesting.
In cold weather after about 45 seconds or so the motor will rev up on its own to warm up faster but when you tap the brake it comes back to normal idle. Do you know if there is a tuner on the truck? SCT or any other brand that maybe the first owner had put on? If there isnt one or you are unsure and can maybe talk to the guy you bought it from ( dont know if you bought it private sale)
Other than that maybe a trip to the dealer is in the cards. Cause if you can put it into gear and it lunges forward thats not really safe.

its a built in high idle. it doesnt it when its cold and needs some more RPMs to keep the motor going and warm up quick.
