comment RPM fluctuation while idling
Yes, it was the idle air control valve. It was a very easy fix that I was able to do without taking it to a shop.

comment RPM fluctuation while idling
Thanks Nick, you nailed it. After a good cleaning with throttle body cleaner the fluctuations stopped, but the RPMs were still low. I finally replaced it (Ford calls it the IAC valve, stands for idle air control valve) and it's been running like a champ ever since. Easy fix too.

comment RPM fluctuation while idling
I'm not sure if it's due or not. I just bought it in August, and these problems are just showing up for the first time. Above 1000 rpms it runs perfect.
