SOURCE: engine stalls out intermitently

First I would replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been changed recently, might check the fuel pump relay, might be going out. Lastly, it might just be the fuel pump going out. I just had to replace mine on a '96 SHO. Hope this helps

SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus will not idle down

several things can do this but most likely would be
1 TPS trottle postion sensor = replace
2 stuck butterfly valve inside the trottle body = clean out with trottle body cleaner try to get most of the black build up with a old tooth brush
3 bad trottle cable= feel the cable make sure it moves freely if not replace it

Are you getting any codes from the Check Engine Light? This sounds like it could have something to do with a sensor. Check your air filter and make sure it's clean. The tach on my 1999 doesn't really work, but it hasn't coincided with other driveability problems. The engine doesn't change in it's RPM's, the tachometer just stops working. Have your charging system checked. The shaking might be coming from bad fuel pump operation, clogged fuel filter, or dirty fuel injectors. Try putting an additive into your gastank to clean the injectors (a bottle of Seafoam is great for this). Try calling your local Autozone and see if they do free trouble code scanning. This might help lead you in a better direction.

SOURCE: Taurus stalls while slowing down (low RPM)

Most likely Idle air control valve fault. Usually wont set a code unless it has a short or unplugged. There are some test that can be performed with a high end scanner but with out the data not much you can do.

1992 ford sho misses on acceleration and idle fluctuates


The things to check would be plugs and wires. Clogged fuel filter. Vacuum leaks at hose connections or at the intake manifold. Low cylinder compression or fuel injector malfunction. I hope this helps.

RPM dial goes up and down when at a stop.Very low idle.Will cut off completely when stopped and while driving.


sounds like vehicle may have a vacuum leak somewhere. u can try to spray some throttle body cleaner around top of engine area around black plastic and see if rpm changes or engine stalls.

egr valve could be sticking. (exhaust gas recirculation) typically this would turn on a check engine light but not always. no easy fix/diag here requires scan tool and replacement if bad.

1992 ford taurus has high idle all the time


Hi idle with no "check engine" lite , indicates a vacumm leak. Check all hoses for cracking or disconnection. Sometimes with engine running, you may hear a "hissing" coming from somewhere under the hood. Good luck. Moe

Rough idle after check engine code cleared


I would check for any vaccum leaks,
You can take a spray bottle of water and spray around the intake manifold with the car running at idle.
The idle will change and get worst if the intake is leaking.
The intake gaskets could be the failure. I know autozone can get into the computer and clear the codes for free.

good luck
