Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
Do you have a small propane torch? or a can or throttle body cleaner or anything similar? Spray the propane(Just the gas, do nit light it) or throttle body clean, slowly around the engine and if there is a vacuum leak the rpm will rise when the propane fumes or throttle body spray gets sucked in and you know it will be in that area. Anywhere from the front of the motor to the sides to all the way behind, it might not be a vacuum hose, could be an intake manifold leak. Smelling fuel when shutting off can be a different problem all together.

i believe its 4 1\2, so put in 4 1\2 and then start it -shut it off then wait for a few minutes then check it,then add a little at a time to fill up if needed,DO NOT OVER FILL IT,not even a little bit,the seals will eventually start leaking,and it will build up with carbon in the intake system.

I can't solve the problem for you, but I can definitely tell you that it is NOT the fuel filter. I just replaced mine, and it's still doing the same thing, a full day after replacing. Looks like we're in the same boat. I'm changing the spark plugs next. Maybe we can help each other out here. What's your next move?
