ICP Question

My Excursion has been have an erratic idle when I am stopped and engine is warm. Feels like my whole cab is shaking. But it doesn't sound like it's going to die or anything...just shakes. Changed the UVCH and connector was loose, but it still ran the same. Tonight I unplugged the ICP sensor and it seemed to smooth out quite a bit. My question is, can I run it all day tomorrow with it unplugged to see if it runs smooth all day? Don't want it to stall or cause more problems. Thanks.

You can run without it connected people do it al of the time. The PCM will go into limp mode and performance and milage may suffer. Was there oil in the ICP sensor connector?

I think, you sir, have found your problem. Get your ICP sensor fron tousley ford parts. Call and ask for Mark he will treat you right. Tell him Jake told you to call. They ship fast and are going to be the cheapest route. Don't buy this sensor from anywhere but a Ford or International dealer.
