Excessive Idle

If I have a deleted EGR, do I have to worry about my "extensive" idle times? I did the miles divided by the hours and got 28. I assume that is "severe" amounts of idling according to ford. Is wet stacking the only problem?

If your going to idle for long periods of time you need to do the high idle mod.

Interested in idle info as well. I do insurance restoration work and spend a lot time sitting in the truck waiting on the adjuster... Not hijacking! Subscribed!

Soot buildup in the turbo and warchild will probably chime in with a couple of more. Something haveing to do with cylinders and unburned fuel.

If your going to be at idle for more than 5 minutes you should flip it on. or if you know your going to have to power something.

Yes you are correct. Wet stacking for sure but it will also save your FICM, altinator, injectors...etc when at idle (if you have the stock alt) you cant charge correctly under an electrical load....etc
