I agree with Steve, I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. You may need fresh fuel? I looked at info for 3.0L engine, says fuel pressure, 60--65 psi.
There shows to be a Schrader valve on fuel rail to attach fuel pressure gage, make sure no pressure, first, attach gage, then turn on the key.

2005 Ford Taurus maybe needind a recalibration of the ECM.For lack of power at highway speed,Misfire at load?low RPM also,The operation of a fuel pressure sensor is to limit voltage to the fuel pump when certain amount of fuel is not needed,and increase voltage when fuel is needed.If anything you need a recalibration of the ECM.

The fuel pressure regulator is on the fuel rail..But it sounds like to me like a stuck idle air control or a vacuum leak..Look carefully at all the vacuum lines and make sure they are not broke or crimped..If it stuck idling high you can tap on the valve and the idle will come down

How do i check the fuel pressure regulator on a 1995 ford taurus

got to your local auto parts store and tell them you need a fuel pressure gauge for up to 100psi, it will connect to a valve stem looking something like the one on a rim, it located on the fuel rail on top of engine, usually chrome going to 3 injectors one each side, pressure should be around 50-60 lbs, if lower replace pump

I have a fuel pressure tester but I don't know how to check it on a 2006 Taurus with the 3.0 12v motor. I think the fuel pump is bad because sometimes the car does not start. I am unable to tell if the...

Located on the fuel rail ( silver or chrome lines holding fuel injectors) you will find a cap at one end that looks like a valve stem cover. When you remove the cover you will find a connector which resembles a tire valve stem. You will connect the fuel pressure tester to this port, and you will need a second person to help. Once connected you will want the helper to turn the key to the on position while watching the gauge. You should see a small pressure rise when the key is cycled from off to on several times. Then with the tester still attached have you helper start the car. You should see a increased pressure around 40PSI. You should check with ford for the proper fuel rail pressure. The gauge should only move about 5 pounds or so while idling.
If you do not have fuel pressure I would first suggest checking the fuel pump relay and it contacts to make sure the relay is working properly. If the relay is working and you still have little pressure the I would change the fuel filter. After that if you still have low pressure I would suggest replacing the pump.
