Question about 1990 Ford Taurus
Sometimes a high idle can be caused by the oxygen sensor being faulty. These are available cheap on E bay @ CBS automotive. I have a contour which had the same problem. I got two sensors for under $60.00 and have had no problems as of now...Hope this helps.

If the check engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any faulty codes that it has stored. Most parts stores will do the scan for free.
