SOURCE: 2003 Ford Taurus wants to die when coming to a stop

TRY THIS AND LET ME KNOW IF IT CORRECTS YOUR PROBLEM
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

It sounds like the fuel is not being delivered sufficently to the engine. Try looking here. Perhaps a fuel injecter cleaner (you can pour Seafoam into the gas tank and it is a great fuel injecter cleaner and fuel stabilizer). What did your plugs look like when you replaced them? This can tell you a lot about the combustion chamber. A Haynes manual will be invaluable to you.

What should the rpm be at in a 1998 iszue rodeo at 70 it is a 5 speed 4x4


It is impossible to calculate with out knowing the over drive ratio (5th gear) and the diff ratio and tire size but with most vehicle with 5 speed boxes it should be in the 3000 to 3500 rpms range
The average vehicle at 74 miles/hr or 120 k/h runs around 3200 rpms
it doesn't matter how many cylinders or if 4x4 or make of vehicle , the rpms is tied to the ratio of the gear and the diff and the circumference of the tires
Sorry , it cannot be more exact than that

first you will have to say what the oil pressure is cold, idle and 2000 rpms and then hot idle and 2000 rpms before a decision to advise about a rebuild can be made
there are many reasons oil pressure can drop and not all require a rebuild

Did you check the voltage after a drive or after it was jumped. The battery may need some time to recharge if it was jumped before it gets checked. Have you checked for a possible draw on the battery? This could be a reason it dies every once in a while. I think that the Alternater is on its way out, it doesn't sound like it is charging like it should. It the new belt tight enough(some new belts stretch after a short time)

Shimmy in steering wheel


Have you tried rotating and balancing your tires? Are you sure that the road surface is entirely smooth? When was the last time that you had your alignment checked? All of these could be possible causes. Your symptoms point to a balancing issue in my opinion. Start small and then work your way up. Let a tech drive it and see if they can identify it.
