I posted this before and received no replies; hopefully someone can help me.
My F-250/351 will occasionally gain several hundred RPM's as I clutch to
shift gears. It will then drop down to a normal idle. Also (like last night)
the idle rpm decided it liked 1500 to 2000 better. It finally quit when I
shut it off and restarted. It has done this off and on all the 7 years I
have owned the truck. Last summer I had a idle control motor and throttle
position sensor put in. (problem not related to this one) I am looking at a
new 02 sensor soon, but haven't had a ck engine light since I changed the
last 02 sensor at 50,000 miles. Currently I have 125,000 miles Any ideas?

Andrew,
I have the same truck and had to grind very slightly the inside edges of the
wrench to get it to fit properly. I have since used my "modified" wrench on
two similar vehicles without problem.

Disclaimer:
this was my experiance and by no means the bottom line on this issue.

Subject: Engine rough at lower speeds. - 95 5.0L V8 F150
Date: Fri, 16 Feb 2001 14:36:10 -0500

I have a 95 F150 ext/cab with 5.0L V8 automatic 2WD.

It idles fine, but when cruising along at 1 to 2000 RPM (city speeds), it runs rough/misses constantly.

I have had this problem for a long time.  I have had two different garages scope the engine, without finding problems or bad codes..  The last one replaced the ignition harness, cap and rotor.  The engine ran OK for about six months but the same problem is back again.  Weather or temperature changes, don't seem to make any difference.
When the engine gets up over 2500 RPM I don't notice the roughness.

Any ideas before I start the shotgun approach? (do a bunch of stuff hoping to fix the problem, ie: injector flush, decarb, replace plugs, clean air sensor, etc.)

Have you replaced plug wires recently?
