Question about 2000 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

Car hesitates and runs rough at low RPM's....worse when the air is on. I replaced the plugs and wires. Could it be a vacuum problem? If so, where can I find a detailed vacuum diagram? Someone also suggested replacing the ignition coil....does this make sense?

I have a 92 talon, has a rough idle when coasting and has low idle when still. I replaced plugs, wires, cleaned IAC valve, mass air flow sensor is good, cleaned the throttle body, added injector cleaner,...


Yes a vacuum leak could be the problem. Try filling a spray-bottle with tap water and spraying the vacuum lines and connections while the car is running.

1991 skylark ideling very rough


Misfire, a misfire is when you have a low cyclinder contribution this can be from a coil pack not firing to a open injector that is not atomizing the fuel in the combustion chamber to a large vacuum leak that is affecting that paticular cylinder.so you have a misfire. High HC (hydrocarbons) fuel not being burnt.2 misfire that concern does the vehicle rough idle smoothes out at higher RPM? If this does check the EGR it simple car running rough at idle feel the EGR is it hot to touch ? Then the EGR vavle got stuck open. another way is pulling out a spark plug wire and checking spark this will determine if the coil is working for that particular cylinder if you do this you need to make sure you dont break the plug wire you will have to wait for the engine to cool down and loosen the plug wire out of the sparkplugs and get it ready for a engine running test.

Your cat should last quite a while now it is replaced. I recommend testing coil packs and module. Change plugs and wires and double check your vacuum hoses.

Faulty idle air control valve or timing chain has jumped. So after you changed plugs it got worse? Better double check to see if the wires are right. You should also look for more damaged loose or cracked vacuum lines. Wiggle them all around with the engine running.
