    Buzzing stops when Idle Air Control Valve is unplugged, also when the Mass Airflow Sensor is unplugged. Re-connecting still buzzes. Car sits and cools - then O.K. till hot again.

    Ford dealer replaced the air bypass valve......same problem as before. They also cleaned the throttle-body of carbon buildup. Do you think that the replacement bypass valve could be defective?

My 96 Taurus Wagon bucks a sputturs when hot and won't go over 3000 rpm's, i had the cam positioning sensor replaced and that didn't do it and it was 100 dollar part, would it do that if t

I would say the code said the sensor was not giving the right signal. Very seldom does a code state to replace a part.
There may still be a problem with the camshaft or the relationship to the crank. (timing)
As for the temp sensor, if it is faulty you should get a trouble code for it.

2003ford taurus bucks at cruising speed 30 to50

Sounds like your mass air flow sensor....or your intake air temperature sensor. Have the vehicle DTC codes checked....Youo may not have a check engine light but a fault code could be stored in the ECM computer. Most auto parts stores will check it for free.

You can't beat free!!!

My car did the same thing with no check engine light and I changed the intake air temp sensor and it fix the problem right away.

I have a 1995 ford taurus engine stalls when idling and smells of gas when accelerating it bucks. Changed fuel filter, could it be mass air flow sensor?

Start with smaller problems and check the fuel pressure regulator, the mass air flow sensor for these vehicles is pretty pricy. Is the check engine light on? If so, head to your nearest auto zone and have them check for trouble codes. If the check engine light isn't on, its not likely your mass air flow sensor
