SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus will not idle down

several things can do this but most likely would be
1 TPS trottle postion sensor = replace
2 stuck butterfly valve inside the trottle body = clean out with trottle body cleaner try to get most of the black build up with a old tooth brush
3 bad trottle cable= feel the cable make sure it moves freely if not replace it

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Taurus wants to die when coming to a stop

TRY THIS AND LET ME KNOW IF IT CORRECTS YOUR PROBLEM
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and 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

This is very common on the 500, The instrument cluster will need to be replaced. The new cluster will need to be programmed at a dealer or other facility that has the proper programming equipment.

Double check battery terminals. Corrosion needs to be removed. Otherwise, bad or loose connections. Possibly cable to the starter and solenoid. Could also be bad connections of ground cable. The clicking noise is the starter solenoid It could be bad since a little more "juice" from the jump provided enough more power or voltage to allow a start.
Is this a "repeatable" event? In other words happens over and over and needs the jump?

When you start the car it turns over but want start. You can wait and try again and it will start and run very well. Next time it may not and you have to sit.


Had same problem last year in my 04 Taurus with V6 12 valave Vulcan engine. Engine spins over OK, fuel is pumping (you can smell it at tail pipe) but intermientently would not start. Sometimes would start on the first try, sometimes and the 10th, etc RIght after trying to start all gauges would peg all the way to the right for 20 or 30 seconds. Took it to garage and they said I would have to wait until it totally failed, their diagnostics could not troubleshoot. Finally it totally died. Engine never turned over sluggish, always spun over nicely until it just died completely. Then I could not even get a click out of the starter. I called AAA, they showed up and immediately the guy said, bad battery. He had seen the same symptom in quite a few Taurus's. I told him that it suddenly stopped and never had symptoms of a weak battery. He replaced battery and all has been perfect since ... go figure? Almost sounds like something may have been intermienttly arching internally to the battery, creating non-DC "dirty electrical noise" and freaking out the computer. Who knows .... ?

2005 Taurus Check Brake System Flashes Then Car Dies


I won't go into a long technical explanation of how todays high tech vehicles work.
You want to know what to do.

You can not fix this yourself. Period.

You need to take the Taurus to a repair shop. You do not need to go to the dealer

They will charge you a diagnostic fee to scan your vehicle,then quote a price to repair

My 2001 ford Taurus heating temp gauge is not constant on dashboard. It goes up and down. I don?t have heat. Water pump, thermostat, in and out pipe and coolant are changed. Still no heat.


Start the engine when cool, remove rad cap and start engine and let it run with the heater on. (not defrost) Top up coolant as needed in rad, and let it run until either the rad fan comes on and off 2 or 3 times, or you can see increased flow in rad from thermostat opening. It will obviously happen after it reaches operating temperature, so watch after gauge gets close to there. Wait until you see that flow 2 or 3 times or fan comes on and off before you put cap on, and fill return bottle to proper level as well. That should cure it, by getting air out of system, and coolant flowing through heater core.

sound like bad connection on the back of cluster, sometimes if you unplug cluster then reconnect that fixes it, if it doesnt then i would say cluster is going bad, good luck.
