Question about 1992 Ford Taurus
Could be one of 5 things going on.. First check for vacuum leaks. You may hear a hissing. If you hear nothing , then check the air intake manifold gasket. This is where the air intake manifold bolts onto the motor. To check this you can start the car up, and spray brake cleaner, engine cleaner, or even wd 40 directly on the intake manifold right where it bolts onto the motor.. If there is any difference in the idle, up or down, that is your problem. This should be checked first as it can save a lot of unnessecary work. If there is no change in the idle, I would check the throttle positioning sensor. This could be sticking and making the car idle high. The next thing to check is the air idle sensor. This is usually located on the side of the throttle body. It has a mushroom shaped plunger inside that controls how much air your engine gets. If this valve sticks, it can be cleaned as well as cleaning the inside of the throttle body where the plunger makes it's contact. A bit of dirt inside there will affect the air flow. If it ends up not being one of these things, but I'm sure it is, have a look at the EGR . This allows exhaust air to be burned or re burned. The EGR can cause idling problems, but usually you'll have black smoke and rough idling with it. Hope this helps you out
