I just installed a aem short ram intake. i let the car go throught the computer break in period. while my car idles it will idle fine for like a miniute of so hen the car idles so low it almost shuts off. I checked the intake for a loose clamp or bad connection. I also checked all of my vacume lines. I jus cant seem to get rid of the bad idle. i also started to use 94 pump gas. I have no clus what's wrong with my zetec. Could it be a tps? I have no problems with acceleration, just at idle. Does ne one have the same problem with he aem short ram? Please help!

If you don't have a chip you don't need 94 octane gas. All foci idle kind of crappy. The high octane fuel ain't going to help the problem. It will hurt performance in the long run.

I also had a mishap taking off a bold which caused a really big arc. i thinkin this might have messed something up in the computer. But im going to get a chip once i get some more money. thanks for the help.
