idle speed is not adjustable on this engine, here is what i do for the probelm.

, 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.

2005 ford taurus se has the emissions light on and in nov 2008 when this light came on and my car completely died after turning the air on I had to have the a/c compressor fixed, the alternator, serpintine...


Well let me tell you this.

2 days ago my a/c didn't put out cold air. It worked the next morning & evening and this morning and almost all the way home tonight.

My 2005 Tarus just did the same thing tonight, emissions light came on while I was going about 80mph. I got over to the right lane and slowed down to 60 and made it off the highway.

As I proceeded home it was acting like it would stall at the red lights but didn't, until I pulled into the driveway (lucky day?).

Bottom line is my emissions light is on and the car won't start.

I will update you asap., on my repair when i take it in tommorrow.

1996 Ford Taurus power hesitation


If you disconnected the Mass air flow sensor the car should have die out at idle. Check fuel pump pressure at the fuel rail should be 30 psi at idle. Low fuel pressure will cause your po 171, 172, problems which could cause the other to problems. You might be needing a fuel pump and filter.

I have a 1996 ford taurus my car will not start in cold weather


you can jump it with a running car, then take it to somewhere like Autozone which will check the charging system and battery to see if there is a problem. Also sometimes you need to remove the battery cables and clean both them and the battery terminals.
