    Not real familiar with that engine anymore, but it is obvious that the throttle plate is not being held open, thus choking off the air intake. It's an idle speed adjustment. Just not sure how that engine does it. Standby, someone will chime in.

    Not sure how the idle is controlled on that one (set screw, ISC motor, solenoid). Been a long time since I've seen one.

    The 4.5 uses an ISC motor.

    Cleaning the throttle body ought to be the first thing.

    Then that's the problem. Either it is inop or out of adjustment.
