My 96 ford taurus revs high when starting then works it way from 1500 or more down to 800 but fluctuates from 800 to a little over 1000. When putting car in rverse or drive from park engine revs up to...

You need to clean the IAC again and also the throttle valve and bore, use only CRC brand Throttle body cleaner. After they are thoroughly cleaned disconnect the battery for 5 min's and then drive the car in varying condition for a few days. If that doesn't cure the issue you have more serious problems and will need a scan tool to look into the readings from the MAF, TPS and ECT sensors. High idle cold start is normal then slowly dropping after a few minutes. I assume you never had a check engine light. Correct?

GMC P2135 throttle sensor code

Trouble Code: P2135

Throttle Position (TP) Sensor 1-2 Correlation

Possible Causes:

Inspect the TAC module connectors for signs of water intrusion. If water intrusion occurs, multiple DTCs may set without any circuit or component conditions found during diagnostic testing.When the TAC module detects a condition within the TAC system, more than one TAC system related DTC may set. This is due to the many redundant tests run continuously on this system. Locating and repairing one individual condition may correct more than one DTC. Disconnecting components during testing may set additional DTCs. Remember this if you review the stored information in Capture Info.If this DTC is determined to be intermittent, refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections .This is what's listed for this code.

2001 v6 4.0 ranger erratic idling at stop

That's where I would start. Get a spray bottle with water in it and a few drops of dish soap just to make it sudsy. Start the truck and spray around all of the vacuum lines, intake manifold, etc. If the idle goes up, that's your leak. Good luck

Make sure there is no water in the gas line. Cheap gas will have water in the gas line.

Also make sure you try adjusting your idle so that way when your car is still it has a better chance of not jerking.

Z24 running rough and stalling

Try cleaning the inside of the MAF sensor, the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve, then disconnect the battery for 5 minutes and drive for a day or two, this should correct the problem or make it better.
