Starts fine, rough idle, put in gear wants to stall, seems ok at speed.... today the hose from the pvc valve pop off and car would not start, could this be a bad pvc valve


Not a bad pcv
Sounds like crankcase pressure from cylinder
blowby.
Think you need to have some serious engine mechanical
diagnostic work done.

Why does my ford taurus idle high code P1506


The code is for the idle air control valve which controls idle speed.
The problem could be a faulty control valve, or a vac leak which is letting in air to the intake and bypassing the control valve.

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.

My 1998 ford taurus is overheating .Already put in a new radiator. Do you think its the head caskets?


if its a 3.0l 2-valve it could have a head gasket or cracked head.
if its a 4v dohc 3.0l it could be the water pump that driven by the
bank2 camshaft... the impeller inside the pump comes aprt and they overheat

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.
