Poor Idle, Engine Stalls, Hesitates on Acceleration on Ford Tempo

Sludge build up in the throttle body can cause a poor engine idle, stalling, and/or hesitation. The correction is to install a new idle air control valve spacer kit to prevent the sludge build up, set the base idle, and clean the throttle body.
