FORD TAURUS DENT PROBLEM

2000 Ford Taurus • 175,000 miles

I just replaced the fuel pump on my car and got it running again after 4 months of sitting and now its wanting to idle at like 1500 to 2000 rpm and when u give it fuel it doesnt want to idle back down is there a way to tell if its a censor or if I just need to turn the idle down?

Idle is preset at factory, controlled by the computer and basically isn't adjustable.

Check for a vacuum leak at one of the vacuum hoses on and leading from the engine. (After 4 months a rodents could have chewed a hole in one of them)

Let me know how this checks out for you. There are other things to try if this doesn't work.

Idle air control motor is most likely bad. It is on top of the motor and is a common failure
