Hi, check radiator fan operation. fan fuses. they only last for ten years. shut it off at stoplights and idling untill you get it fixed. they are not too hard to remove. go to for removal instructions. you have to sign up for autozone, but its free.

Why does my ford taurus idle high code P1506

The code is for the idle air control valve which controls idle speed.
The problem could be a faulty control valve, or a vac leak which is letting in air to the intake and bypassing the control valve.

Problem with my 2000 ford taurus water pump.

I just had that same problem with the antifreeze leaking and I thought it was my water pump but I pulled the antifreeze tank off and it was cracked all along the bottom and that was causing the antifreeze to leak out real bad so I went to a nearby junkyard and found a new tank and replaced the cracked one and now it works just fine with no leaks. I hope this works for you liked it worked for me.
