Engine Performance problem
1998 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 65000 miles
I just got this car. When I first start teh engin it used to idle high and would not go below about 1200 rpm. I cleaned the MSA and it now drops to the 800 range.
When I am driving, it feels like you can get to the speed you want and you can take your foot off the gas and it will stay at that speed until you brake. It is very slow to slow down on its own. When I am going down a small hill it will pick up speed even if I shift down to drive from overdrive.
I read something about the fuel pressure regulator possibly leaking more fuel than it should. Just want to confirm before I replace it.
