sounds like a vacuum leak at the manifold. spray wd40 or simillar around manifold to check for leaks. if you find a leak, engine will flare up.

Replaced plugs and coil pack on 2001 ford taurus now car will not start


You will need to figure out if you have spark to the plugs, and if not- if you have voltage to the coil to proceed.

I have a rough idle at low rpm almost feels like it wants to stall once it reaches normal operating temp it improves some what I think its the EGR or spark knock 2000 Ford Taurus 3.0L V6


It could also be a vacumme leak. A quick way to check for that is to starting fluid around hoses and gasket areas. If the engine picks up speed when you spray around the engine and not directly in the throttle body, you have found your leak. I also believe these cars have an idol air control valve or IAC that might need to be cleaned or replaced. Check your spark/coil wires while you are checking around.
