Mark, yes I would like to know all about your experiences in correcting this
on your truck.
This rough idle problem makes my F150 feel like an old clunker at adle!

Gary, I have had the same problem since the day I drove my 99 home from the
dealer. I can tell you what has been done that did not fix the problem. I
can also tell you what was done the last time - and this MIGHT have fixed
it. I want to give it some more time and some cooler weather to decide
fully. Mine seems to show it's symptoms worse when its cooler. Let me know
if you want the info -- Mark

I have a 1999 E-350 5.4L that won't idle when you first start up.  If you
drive for a while 15 or 20 minutes you can hear the engine pick up RPMs at
idle and it will do fine.  Until that point you have to keep one foot on the
brake and one on the gas at stoplights so that it won't cut off.  Once it
finally cuts in it idles perfectly until you cut the engine off.  If it sits
for an hour or more the cycle starts all over again.  What gives????????

   On our fleet of dually's, we have been running the Ameristeel 550's by
General for several years. Excellent tread life, very few flats.

I took my 2000 SC 4x4 5.4 in to the dealer on the 10k oil change and told
them to look at the rough idle, they told me it is per Ford specs but also
said that an adjustment will be need in the future. I asked what's this
mean, service manger told me its is a known problem and until Ford issue a
TSB they can do anything yet. I suppose they know something must be coming
down the road as far as a TSB.
