Engine Idle Rolls Up and Down on Ford E-150

If engine idle rolls up and down, and diagnosis rules out Idle Air Control (IAC) valve issues and vacuum leaks, the Programmable Speedometer/Odometer Module (PSOM) can be at fault electronically. The instrument cluster will need to be replaced, the PSOM is inside the cluster.

The engine would randomly 'race' without warning. I would have to keep foot on brake at stoplights etc. to keep it from 'jumping out' into traffic. We tried vacuum hoses, egr valve. Doing it again.
