Question about 1999 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

99 Taurus (DOHC) Dies when slowing down or idle.

When driving the car and getting to stoplights, the car simply shuts off. Sometimes it sputters, but oft times it just shuts off and the oil lamp and the battery light come on. The battery is brand new, and the oil was just changed. I replaced the IAC valve as the auto zone employee and a few others suggested, but problem persists. Any suggestions?

Try replacing the MAP sensor, if you have fuel injection. Your air/fuel mixture is bad.

2001 FORD TAURUS IDLES BAD


i recently had this issue with my 2001 taurus dohc engine. when you drive it seems that everything is fine. when you stop, the car will idle very low and somethimes shut off. there is a hose under the throttle body that is attached to the pcv valve. over time, this hose will collapse and eign to tear. i replace that hose (autozone for $10) and it solved my idling problem.

I have a 1998 Ford taurus. It starts fine but then dies and also when slowing down the RPM dropped and it stalls. Can start again, but it dies off pretty qickly.


need to check the idle/air control valve.the valve gets sludged with oily tarnish and moves slowly and can'y keep the car idling properly. may also want to clean the throttle plate , it too can be sludged with the same tarnish limiting the air flow.

1989 Cadillac Sedan De Ville engine stalls when air is turned on...tries to take off when stopped at stoplight..sometimes dies while driving..


It sounds like the idle compensation circuit for the engine is dirty or faulty. Have your car checked at a shop. have them check the idle air motor for dirt or malfunction. It could be that it only needs to be cleaned or replaced.

The compensation circuit adjusts the idle/slow speed of the engine. The air conditioner puts a load on the engine and this circuit adjusts the engine speed to compensate. Also, when the car is cold this circuit adjusts the idle speed to prevent stalling and help the engine warm up faster. I hope this information helps you.

I have a 2001 taurus,DOHC,24 valve.....At first the car would surge real bad,like when you pull up to a stoplight it would jump and idle rough and die,,,,Ive changed the tps,DPFE sensor,the EGR vaccum...


You do not mention any testing, the transmission and engine are fully electronically controlled, have the system scanned for fault codes as a first step in repair.

99 Dodge Durango Dies When Slowing


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle 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.
