SOURCE: Checked Fuel Pressure Regulator on 93 Ford Tempo GL 2.3 Liter.

As far as I know without checking it personally it sounds like it could be one of three things (in order from easiest to hardest). Clogged air filter, worn timing chain, leaking head gasket. To check for the third go to Auto Zone and get them to do a compression check, its free. I can't remember off hand but if the 93 has a TPS (throttle position sensor) that could also cause an irratic idle.

SOURCE: what happens when the fuel pressure regulator goes bad?

The motor more than likely won't start or it could flood out with gas.
Fuel pressure regulator controls fuel pressure. You should have 30psi at the fuel rail for the motor to start.

Where do you find the fuel preasure regulator on a 2003 taurus

Up until 2002 the fuel pressure regulator was vac controlled and mounted in the fuel rail on the intake manifold.
After 2002 I think it is part of the fuel pressure sensor which still mounts on the rail.
You may have to check with the dealer to see which version your engine has.

My 2003 Taurus with 93,000 miles occasionally stalls, cuts out when I'm just driving between 35-45 mph. I kick the gas pedal to restart the motor, all happening in 2-3 seconds. Mechanic put a computer...

low fuel pressure can be caused by fuel pump or pressure regulator. The regulator is on the upper side of the engine and looks like picture below. Check the vacuum hose all the way to see if it has a loose or broken connection. The regulator is much easier to replace that the pump, so I always recommend one replace the regulator before the pump. If you know someone that can check the fuel pressure before the regulator, you can actually determine which part is bad.

My 1987 Ford Taurus 3.0L, AT stalls after it's been running for a little while. Has new fuel pump and filter. Any ideas? partsplusguy

Have you checked the fuel pressure when running?

Is the fuel pressure correct?

Perhaps your fuel pressure regulator is bad, or the fuel pump relay is going bad.

Where is the fuel pump relay on the 95 ford taurus

Hello , fuel pump relay location is in the relay box by the radiator. The fuel psi regulator is on the fuel rail itself. The regulator looks like a small disk about 1.5inchs in dia. It will have a vacuum line running to it.

2003 ford taurus what to do to fix,have codes 1131 and 1151.

error codes 1131 and 1151 say : Lack of Upstream Heated Oxygen Sensor Switch Sensor Indicates Lean - Bank No. 1 (1131) and 2 (1151).

a lot of causes are possible:

* Short to VPWR in the harness or HO2S
* Water in the harness connector
* Open/shorted HO2S circuit
* Corrosion or poor mating terminals and wiring
* Damaged HO2S
* Damaged PCM
* Excessive fuel pressure
* Leaking/contaminated fuel injectors
* Leaking fuel pressure regulator
* Low fuel pressure or running out of fuel
* Vapor recovery system
* Air leaks after the MAF
* Vacuum Leaks
* Improperly seated engine oil dipstick
* Leaking gasket
* Stuck EGR valve
* Leaking diaphragm or EVR
* Oil overfill
* Cam Timing
* Cylinder compression
* Exhaust leaks before or near the HO2S(s)

the idle up and down is because the electronics ist stuck in a try to compensate, overcompensate, reset cycle
