I have a 2000 ford Taurus that putts at idle, but not at acceleration. Car stalls when not warmed up. I have to keep my foot on gas pedal to keep car from stalling when warming up. I've had oxygen...


There is an idle control valve in the air intake circuit that gets dirty. Ford says not to clean this valve but to replace it. However cleaning seems to work for me.

Car will not start without pressing gas pedal to keep idle speed up. If I keep idle at 900 RPM or higher it runs as long as foot is on gas pedal. It then stalls out when I take foot off gas pedal. No...


Have the idle bypass valve checked, also called idle air control valve.
If that valve is stuck in the closed position, it's not allowing the fuel to bypass the throttle plate to keep it idling, resulting in stalling, but will keep engine running if the pedal is pushed down.

Engine seems to stall when first starting in cold weather after its warm it runns great


Will it stay running if you keep your foot on the gas? If yes it sounds like you might have a bad Idle air control motor.

Car stalls at stop signs


will it re-start right back up?
next time try to keep your foot on the gas pedal to see if it stay running ( be careful when you do this, if you give too much gas the car will over come the brake and cause accident )
if it stay running then you need to replace an idle air control valve
