My best guesses would be #1. Oxygen sensor(s). #2. M.A.P.(manifold absolute pressure) sensor. #3. M.A.F(manifold air flow). sensor. I wish you the best of luck. Keep me posted.

I would replace the fuel filter, clean the mass air flow sensor and then scan the computer for codes. You may have a bad throttle position sensor.

The secondary air pump has failed and will need to replaced. The pump is an emissions component meant to help with cold start emissions. Replace it, clear the code & you should be fine. I hope this information was helpful.

hi,
spark plug wires, fuel filter, air filter, or fuel pump might be getting ready to go. maybe a vacuum leak, hook it up to a vacuum gauge and see if the needle is steady, or take it to autozone and have them run a OBD test. I think its free at autozone.

What would cause this vehicle to use execessive gas.


1) dirty air filter

2) vacuum leak

3) false reading from mass air flow sensor

4) false reading from coolant temperature sensor

5) improper tires inflation

6) topping off gas when fill-up (soaking emission lines with fuel)

7) Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) and breather element clogging

8) Exhaust Gas Recirculation(EGR) Valve stuck with carbon and EGR passage tube is block with carbon.

9) low or dirty transmission fluid + filter (if it's an automatic)

10) excessive load

1999 Ford Taurus mechanical problem


Hello,
your problem appears to be the idle control motor located on the air intake manifold it is a small motor that goes bad quite often. Other items that can cause this is a bad /clogged air filter or a tune up (spark plugs and wires), or clogged fuel injectors. to clean the injectors you can buy a container of fuel system cleaner and pour it into the gas tank and as you drive it cleans the system.

Once the fuel system is cleaned via a tankful of cleaner & gas then the idle controller motor would be next on the list to be replaced.

Good Luck !

I have a 1999 oldsmobile intrigue that is misting a lot. It idels rough, and runs rough. I can still take off it is a little slow, but I can still go pretty fast, but it still mist at the high speeds...


fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail is probably it or the egr valve is stuck open allowing burnt fuel to flood the intake, im leaning towards the fuel pressure regulator because the o2sensor is probably reading rich or if its reading lean then i would choose the egr valve . good luck
