2000 E150 rough idle.

Hey Guys,

One of our work vans has an odd problem. It idles rough but runs perfect at all other driving speeds. Codes indicate a lean condition and when I got to looking around with my diagnostic scanner, I find that the O2 sensors are not functioning at idle.

However, if I barely crack the throttle, they begin to work and the engine runs smoothly. Internet searching has pointed to an O2 sensor relay which I will check next time I get a chance.

Any other ideas?

Thanks for the help!

1998 Mercedes E300, Custom injector nozzles, soon to have Eaton M90 supercharger, 7.5mm pump elements, Holset HX40 turbo and a full custom intake and exhaust system = 400HP from 3.0l
