My husband changed my plugs, wires, and gaskets last night on my truck because I had oil in my plugs. Wow what a mess.. When he finished he started it up and now it will run if you keep on the gas but it stalls as soon as you put it in idle. As it stalls, it lets out this mild sound like wheeew ( air compression or something) ..Please someone help.. I really love my truck ... It has 168,000 miles on it and is Very reliable... until now... Thanks so much... ">

I had a very similar problem with my 2002 Montero Sport immediately after I replaced the battery. It would start, idled very rough and sporadically. As soon as I would put it into a gear it would want to stall unless i feathered the gas and brake. This continued as I test drove it around my neighborhood. I read many many forums and found one lone post mentioning that they had the same issue related to a dirty Oxygen sensor and when they pulled the battery or terminal that the computer lost any calibration it had learned in order to provide a smooth idle with the dirty sensor. What they said fixed their issue was to again pull a battery terminal to reset the computer then reconnect and run at idle for 20 minutes. Sure enough I did this and my idle issues disappeared. It didn't immediately return to how smoothly it ran before changing the battery but after driving for a week it seemed to be back to normal at that point.

place your parking brake on turn off the fan,radio,lights etc put in neutral hold the gas peddle down for about 4 to 5 mins then put on lights radio ,ects repeat once or twice and car should learn its idle bye about 10 to 15 min, when your putting the gas peddle down only too about 1and 1%2 on the tac maybe 2 grand ,it will shut off about 3 times then hold its own after this put it in park and you should be all set after you get it too idle in neutral place on lights and flashers heater any electrical too watch tac rev up on its own too adjust for increase in power
