Question about 1993 Ford Taurus

My car idles too fast like 3000 rpms and the checkengine light is

I already replaced all the sensors and it still didnt work and I am wondering if it could be anything to do with the fuel pump.

Check for crossed vacuum lines or leaks.That would definately give you a high RPM.Did you have the computer scanned at all.Dont just change the sensors if their good.Pay someone to fix it

Misfire, idles high

I would start with ect. That is the engine coolant temperature (sensor). That sensor monitors the coolant temp and tells the computer to increase engine RPM so the engine warms up faster. In the mornings when you first start your car and it idols high, that sensor is sending that information. If you have a code for this sensor start there.

Idles rough aand checkengine light on, changed o2 sensor that was throwing the code and didnt fix

Well first, has the vehicle had a tune-up as of late? Second, if it has had a tune-up, then the possible culprit to rough idling is the Idle Air Control valve or IAC for short. Also, if your check engine light is still on, your still getting codes. What are the latest code(s)?

Had the battery replaced and now the engine idles at 300 rpms.

try disconnecting the battery for about 15 minutes, sometimes this will clear false codes. Reconnect battery and let it idle for a few min. Some cars have to recognize how a car is driven and idled for a certain amount of time. This info is then stored into the (brain) of the car. It may just have your signal from the throttle position sensor messed up and hopefully this will work.

When i start my car in the mornings to warm up it idles for about 5 minutes then the starts to jump up and down from about 1500 rpms to about 2500 rpms one the car warms up more then its from 1000 to 1500...

Try unplugging the mass air flow sensor and see if it levels out.If so I would change the mass air flow sensor.If not try the same technique with the throttle position sensor.
