Possible problems

Vaccuum leak
failed IAC valve
open or short
air inlet plugged

P1507 means "Idle Air Control Underspeed Error". It can be most commonly caused by a vacuum leak, a damaged Idle Air Control (IAC) assembly or a stuck IAC valve that needs cleaning. Essentially, your engine isn't idling at high enough according to your computer's programming parameters. Many times this shows up in colder weather as you try and start your vehicle. It will usually die unless you put your foot on the gas pedal and raise the RPM's. I have also read where a clogged air filter might be the problem. I would try cleaning your IAC valve first.

Why did Auto Zone not tell you? Didn't ask?

P1507 Idle Air Control Underspeed Error

Disconnect valve and see if idle changes
You may be able to clean it, or just have to replace, depending on what failed

I have a 96 ford taurus and the check engine light is flashing on and off and is putting like a truck.


The flashing service engine light indicates a misfire. You probably need a tune up. Replace the spark plugs and plug wires. That should be done every sixty thousand miles. The fuel filter should be replaced every two years. Get the engine computer scanned for free at Auto Zone and post the codes here for more help.

Check engine light is illuminated in my 2006 tuarus


HI. This will require you to have the engine CPU scanned for trouble code's. This can only be administered with the assistance of a diagnostic computer scan tool. You can purchase this tool at your local auto parts store, or you can just have the scan ran at your local auto zone parts store, free of charge. Once the diagnostic scan is administered, you will be able to isolate the issues that have caused the check engine light to illuminate.

This scan tool will display a print out code and the location of the issue, on the engine, as well. There are Many issues that will cause the engine light to illuminate, but the most common cause will be a failed monitoring sensor, or sensor harness failure(separated power wire, or ground).

Once you have the codes, kindly return to the site, and post them here. We will be able to assist with more accuracy, once the codes are posted.

Thanks../

The engine light on my ford taurus 1998 keeps coming on


the engine light is a way for the computer to let you know that there is a problem with the engines sensor, ignition system or fuel system. You will have to have a mechanic or go to auto zone and have them pull the codes so you can get idea where to start repairs.Until you do this it's almost impossible to give any ideas on how to repair. Hope this helps leave comment.

Service Engine Light Appeared - 1998 Ford Taurus


Take it to your local Auto Zone store. They will hook it up to a scanner for FREE and read the codes saved in the computer. They should give you a printout with the codes and possible problems with your car. You can decide where to take it to get it serviced knowing what the problem is. It's usually a bad sensor. Auto Zone could quote you a price on the part so you have an idea of what your repair bill should be. Auto Zone only sells parts. They do not install them. Good Luck!
