05 ford escape stalling problem.

i have an 05 escape that stals at idle in gear. the fuel filter was really bad so i swapped tht and did a full tune up. I also changed the idle air bypass valve. it runs fine just when i come to idle it stalls. if i put it into neutral ro park it idles great. it is a 2.3 l motor. any ideas? i dont have a check engine light on either

Throttle position sensor? Most likely to throw a code though.
Fuel pressure regulator?

when he car is warming up it will idle but it idles a little rough. if I put it in neutral while warming up it smooths right out. Not sure if its the converter but how would i check it?

the regulator might have gotten clogged up or somethingsince the filter was so bad. how can i check the regulator without getting a new one?

Hmmm...

IAC perhaps? Fords are known for these...

How many miles are on the vehicle? Not too likely, but perhaps you've had the timing belt jump time.

Maybe a simple vacuum leak?

A couple things would help...

Did you have any work done to it before your tune-up, ect.?
Have you checked any of the simple things yet? Vacuum, fuel pressure, ect.
Did the problem just crop up, or has it been getting worse over time?

I am really leaning towards a vacuum leak right now.

Will it die if you let it warm up to operating temp, or is it only after you've been driving it?

I think the converter problem would be most evident when you were coming down from the overdrive gear (exiting the highway, for example). It would be kinda like leaving your manual tranny car in high gear and not putting in the clutch.

3/36 on 05s. Maybe out by mileage? If not-take it to the stealer and let them use the diagnostic 8 ball.
