    Elon from Tx. I have a 98 Tauras L 3.0 liter V6 and It is idling way too high!!! I thought maybe it was the vacum pump,that regulates the gas airflow mixture,but I'm not sure yet.Does anybody out there know what the problem could be? Drop a line,on the site if you know thanks!

    Not sure what codes your buddy retireved. This would possibly give me a better clue. Two things I can suggest based on experience. Check all vacuum lines and verify none are faulty, check the Delta Pressure Differential Sensor (DPFE). These are two things on Fords that I've seen repeatedly which can cause it to idle high.

P0191 and p0113 on 2007 ford tauras

Someone has no idea how to diagnose a ford,
I would say

PO 113--Intake Air Temp Circuit High Input
PO 191--Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor Circuit Range/Performance

I wouldn't be installing any parts, until you find the real issues
there,try a different shop or dealer

A fuel pump & cps sensor & give it back to you half
That was nice & typical of all the people that come here

95 fordc tauras gl 3.8 engine cranks but wont start has fuel pressure does cap and rotor have anything to do with it or timing belt gone .

95 3.8l does not have a timing belt, its a chain and sprokets.
they normally dont fail.
if the is no spark its probably an ign moduel called a tfi module.

My 2001 ford tauras sounds like its gonna stall when you first start it and after a few minutes it will pick up and smooth out. Have changed the plugs and wires, coil pack, temperature sensor, idle air...

clean the throttle body. main cause of your problem.there might be a sticker on throttle body saying dont clean it because of some anti dirt coating but disreguard ive never had a problem after claening them and ive done hundreds.

Need to replace gasket on the external oil pump, 95 tauras 3.8 v6

I owned a 95 Taurus for several years and done my own maint. I never heard of an external oil pump. The pump is in the oil pan and runs off the cam shaft. To replace it you have to pull the oil pan. After that it is fairly easy. Take out the bolts and it will come out. There are no springs to worry about.If you were talking about some other pump let me know.

My 2001 ford tauras sounds like its gonna stall when you first start it and the engine like comes on and goes off.

the idle air control valve maybe sticking and causing the car to want to stall until you start moving. it keeps the idle when not moving. it is on the throttle body where the air tube meets the intake. it looks like a 3" silver cylinder. common to fill with carbon after awhile, have the fuel injection cleaned at a shop after to remove the carbon build inside the intake. best of luck
