Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles
My car sporadically (once a week usually) will not start. I found that by pressing the accelerator to the floor and turning it over, the car will start. The rest of the time, it starts and runs fine without having to mash the gas. I've noticed it has always had a high idle when it is first started. I've replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter, and PCV valve. It was scanned at the dealership and showed no error codes. I was thinking of trying the idle air control valve or EGR valve. Maybe vacuum line leak somewhere? Anyone have any other ideas? Thanks
have the same problem?
