Question about 2003 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

My check engine light is on and it idles really low at about 300 rpms and dies. i have to keep one foot on the gas and one on the brake to keep it going. went to autozone and had them hook it up to the scanner, and it said "results too lean" no idea what that means and neither do they. i will say i just had a tune up and my ignition coil replaced.

Your not getting enough gas through your fuel injectors. You could have a bad fuel pressure regulator, or just a dirty fuel injector. But if worse comes to worse, You have a bad fuel pump. But I promise you, it's one of the three. :)) Probably just a dirty fuel injector. Hope this helps, James Booth

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

98 ford escort zx2 dies when it drops below 1000 rpms


I doubt the two problems are related.
The computer uses an idle speed control valve to regulate idle speed. The valve controls the amount of air entering the intake.
You should have a check engine light on and also a stored trouble code for the valve. It could also be a problem with the throttle plate in the throttle body.

My 1999 Lexus RX 300 suddenly will not maintain an idle when I remove my foot from the accelerator. It runs fine otherwise but it will no longer start and maintain an idle if I do not keep my right foot on...


could be the idle air control valve. if you remove your air intake tubing and can see into the throttle body just check to see if its dirty. if it is try to clean it with an aerosol spray can of carby cleaner. good luck.

Check engine light on car dies when I touch brake


Check Engine light is on. Find out what DTC (diagnostic trouble code) is set and I can help you more. You can get a code puller from your local parts store.

2000 jeep grand V8 low idle then dies


A faulty gas cap can cause the sensor to come on.
Clean out the throttle body with a cleaner and see if the idle improves.
