Re: I have a 1998 ford taurus
If you have an auto zone near you they can print you out one for free also if there is a library near you you can get a diagram there too look at the hose behind the throttle body to make sure that one is on and it does not have a hole in it

It could also be a vacumme leak. A quick way to check for that is to starting fluid around hoses and gasket areas. If the engine picks up speed when you spray around the engine and not directly in the throttle body, you have found your leak. I also believe these cars have an idol air control valve or IAC that might need to be cleaned or replaced. Check your spark/coil wires while you are checking around.
you have a fuel pump problem it was shorting for some reason hence the gauge going crazy from the float circuit being shorted. your fuel pump is on it's last leg have it replace this will solve the problem. please rate this
It may be that you need the throttle body and air bypass idle speed control valve cleaned, this is easy to to, pull of the rubber air intake hose off the engine, hold the eng. at hi idle and spray an approved throttle body spray cleaner in, use at least half the can, then lower the idle and spray until the engine stalls, disconnect the battery for 5 minutes to clear any codes and reset "idle learn" system to base line in the Power Train Control Processor. Drive a few days to reset idle learn and this should cure the issue of stall, if not you may have another part failing.
