I would like to know if anybody has a bird with the 3.9 liter engine mine
starts in the morning and ideals at 2000 rpms it sound like it is going to
blow up.I have had it to Ford and they say it is normal
I don’t think so and I told them as you can see it did me no good!!!!!!!!!!

What year bird is this? Not familiar with the 3.9

My 2004 Thunderbird does not do that. How long does it idle at 2000 rpm? My
old Saturn Vue did a weird thing first thing in the morning – when you
started it, the idle speed imeadiately jumped up to around 2000 rpm and then
fell back to a much lower idle speed. The owners manual even warned you
about this behavior. Anything in your owner’s manual? The only idle speed
specification I can find says the hot idle should be 600-700 rpm. Nothing
about cold idle speed. My Thunderbird has a “fly by wire” throttle (throttle
plate is moved by a stepper motor, not by a cable). Is yours like that? Not
sure when they started using those on the 3.9L engines.
