Question about 1997 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

My 97 Ford Taurus 3.0L V-6 idles ruff when warm, and will sometimes die. You can start it and go and it does fine until you shut the car off. When you restart, before the car cools down, it doesn't want to idle. My check engine light stays on, had this tested and was told it was do to an erg valve. Will this effect the way it idles?

Yes and the way it runs.
Disconnect and plug the vacuum lines to the EGR, and see if you still have idle and driveability issues. If not replace the Valve.

I have a 1996 ford ranger 6 cylinder. When I crank it up it idles ruff a minute or two. I can hold gas down a minute and it does fine from then on. After it warms up it cranks fine. What's the problem


probably find that there is a dirty injectors problem and the needles are sticking until they worm up
run the fault codes to check for other possible causes
use quality fuel injector cleaner as recommended for a few tank fulls

Ruff idle on my 2001 for taurus. At higher rpms it runs fine.


It is most likely you wheel alignment (costs about 20 bucks to have your wheels aligned) or try checking the tire Pressure to make sure they're all even maybe hope this helps

Change the coolant sensor located close to the thermostat housing. This is easy but do not over tighten it. You will have the same problem if you do. Tighten till it does not leak only.Good luck!

My 90 olds cutlass supreme 3.1 automatic starts and runs until it warms up.reving the motor and letting it return to idle a few times,the idle gets ruff then dies and will not start again until it cools...


you most likely have a injector breaking down which is causing the quad driver in the computer which control the injector pulse to shut down .When a injector resistance is to low this will happen the correct resistance in ohms is 12.4 per each injector .This was a very common problem with 88 to 97 gm cars.have this zcheck at a reliable shop :)
