North Austin/Round Rock - Looking for Ford Master Mechanic for EEC-IV & EGR troubleshooting

Round Rock/North Austin: Anyone know of a Ford Master Mechanic who won't just replace parts you've already replaced.
And will actually listen to the troubleshooting steps you've already taken?
And knows mid 90's EEC-IV & EGR system like the back of their hand?

As you can see below, I've already done a LOT of t/s on my own and need someone who will pay attention to that and not just start from scratch.

------------

Code 172 & 334.
I suspect the 172 is just a symptom of the code 334.


  • 1994 Bronco
  • 5.8L Windsor
  • E40D auto
  • 192k miles
  • No mods that I know of.
  • Just bought it from a car lot a few weeks ago, issue has been present from day one.


    Symptoms I get:

    Runs smooth till it warms up.
    Then when I stop at a light, the idle might suddenly drop from ~1k down to ~500 RPM and stumble.
    Then pop back up to ~1k for a moment, then drop to ~500 again. And occasionally dies.
    When this happens, sometimes the tranny will suddenly start shifting at really high RPM's with whiplash effect.


    Things I've replaced in the last two weeks:

    -EGR Vacuum Regulator Solenoid
    -Coolant Temperature Sensor
    -Idle Air Control Valve
    -Throttle Position Sensor
    -Fuel Pressure Regulator
    -ACCEL Supercoil
    -ACCEL Distributor Cap
    -Ford Racing Spark Plug Set
    -02 Sensor
    -EGR Valve Position Sensor
    -Replaced all vacuum hoses
    -Cleaned PCV Valve
    -Cleaned Throttle Body


    Troubleshooting steps I've taken so far:

    -Plugged Vacuum tester into EVR top line going to EGR and it held vacuum.
    -Plugged Vacuum tester into EVR bottom line going to solenoids and it held vacuum.
    -Applied vacuum to EGR while engine was running and the diagphram moved and engine idle changed.
    -EVR 12V pin shows -12V on my multimeter.
    -Shorted EVR's pin 33 to ground while engine running and the engine died.
    -Applied vacuum to vacuum cannister AMP with MAN disconnected. It holds vacuum fine.
    -When I do the KOER code test, the EGR does not move.
    -Hooking a vacuum guage inline with cannister AMP shows "green" levels of vacuum (good).
    -EVP shows 5v at pins VREF and SIG RTN.
    -EVP shows ~3700 ohms at pins VREF and EVP and it goes down to ~350 when I apply 10hg vacuum to EGR.
    -Disconnected IAC. Applied vacuum to EGR and engine RPM's stumbled as expected.
    -Put Vacuum tester inline at EGR and raised engine RPM's, the vacuum does not register anything at all.

    I'm sure I've forgotten a few things.
    Any and all help would be appreciated!
    If there are any sensors I should try replacing, then I can do that too.
