Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
Robertphi50 - been there... etc. etc. too many asc 'certified' mechanics still do not know how to troubleshoot problems. If it's not in the book, it doesn't get fixed. My nephew listened to my problem then did what no one else did. He removed the throttle body cover and the butterfly valve was gunked up. Some brake cleaning spray and 5 minutes later, done. Fixed. now more than 2 months with no problems. Imagine that a $5.00 fix and it could have been solved sooner and cheaper if only dealerships didn't work so hard for profits at the expense of doing the right thing.

There is a idle sensor on front of plenum about 3 inches long and cylinder shaped, Good thing to do is go to a parts store and have em look up your engine and see what else controls the idle besides that one I know there is another one because I had the same problem on a ford truck after replaceing these to sensors it ran perfect.Better yet if you want a print out and more knowlege that a parts store,,Go to your local Ford dealship that has a parts counter just to find out exactly where these sensors are located,and there are ford mechanics walking around everywhere. I get alot of good info from this type of parts counter,,,,,,,go figure they only work on fords,,,,There parts are high but you dont have to buy there Auto zone is cheaper but the ford parts are a better quality , so if you can afford there prices buy there .I know for a fact that is your problem.
