Article 99-18-2 is being republished in its entirety as part of a consolidated 7.3L diagnostic aid booklet.
On some vehicles not equipped with cruise control, the engine may idle at the normal engine RPM but lacks the cold engine idle kicker function to raise the engine RPM similar to those vehicles equipped with cruise control. This may be due to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) strategy.
Reprogram the PCM. Refer to the following PCM Reprogramming Information Table for calibration details.
