#1 of 98 Ford F250 Unexplained lunging while coming to a stop
Dec 07, 2006 (7:26 am)
This truck is a 2000 model with the Triton V10, automatic transmission and only has 40,000.00 miles. Recently, while coming to a stop. The truck seems to lunge forward and stalls. The only way to get out of the situation is to put the truck in neutral, start it up and put it into drive. This will continue for a few times, but then goes away for days/weeks at a time. Iíve taken it to the Ford dealership, but they were not able to find anything wrong. Iím hoping that someone else might have had this type of issue before, so I can give a better explanation to the dealership to get it fixed. The feeling is similar when coming to a stop with a manual transmission and not pushing in the clutch.

Don't have any hints for you. How about the IAC (Idle Air Control) Valve. Sounds like it could be plugging up and causing the truck to stall at idle. When they're just starting to fail you get flakey behavior for a while, then it starts getting worse.
If it isn't the IAC, then it could be the tranny. Just wondering if it would be better to take it a dedicated transmission shop instead of the dealer?

Thanks for the reply. Iíve been on a few forums trying to get some information. This definitely helps. I can look into it. Iím trying to isolate the issue a bit before going to a dedicated tranny shop, but that option has come up.
Thanks again for the reply. I will give an update once I find out what the issue is.

I have the same truck except 2001. I also have had the truck lunge forward when coming to a stop. I have also had the truck stall on acceleration a few times then it's O.K. for a week or so. What did you find was causing your problem? When mine stalls it cranks but wont start untill I turn the key to off, wait about 5 seconds then it starts right up and runs fine.Any Ideas??

#7 of 98 F250 7.3 stalling problems
Jun 22, 2007 (5:43 am)
1999 F250 7.3L 132000 Miles started getting a problem 3 or 4 weeks ago. I was driving in town at 30 mph puled up to a stop light and then when I started to move the truck just died. It restarted after setting for several minutes and I drove it home (over 20 miles) without a problem. The same thing happened again the next week under the same conditions. Then I was driving on the freeway at 60mph and it stopped again, I was able to restart it, it would run for a few miles and then stop. This has pledged me every time I take out the truck. If I let the truck set for several minutes it restarts and runs fine for a few miles and then stops.
Had diagnose ran on truck computer no codes ever come back, but check engine light does come on, I have changed the fuel filter and air filter.
I read that it can be a cam position sensor, my mechanic and auto parts store suggested I have something in the tank or that I should replace the high-pressure fuel pump. This could bleed my wallet, please help.

I have a 1985 F-150 same problem. Fuel pumps O.K.,Ign.module replaced,still no luck. Searching earlier this morning I saw someone one this website who replaced his coil and problem ceased. This problem will get continuously worse.

I have a way different vehicle, but wonder if it's the same problem. My 2001 Taurus stalled yesterday. First it stalled when it was put into drive (in a parking lot). It stalled twice and went the third try. A little while later is stalled when pulling out after stopping for a traffic light. It restarted and was fine the rest of the day.
2 weeks ago it also stalled in a parking lot. My son said he has to put it into Reverse before Drive, and then it didn't stall. That was twice in one night, then nothing until yesterday. DOes this sound like what yours did? What was the diagnosis?
#10 of 98 Acceleration problem on a 2006 F-250 diesel
Jul 20, 2007 (11:25 am)
I have a F-250 diesel, 2006 model with 36000 miles. The first problem was the cruise control. When pushing the coast button it would accelerate. Had it in for repairs and thought it was fixed. Now when I drive for about 2 hours, turn the engine off, turn it back on after a few minutes it will be hard to start and sometimes will not accelerate when stepping on the gas pedal. I have taken it in 3 times. They changed the throttle sensor but each time it does not mess up for them and the computer does not read any bad codes. Any solutions?
