I have a 2000 ford taurus. The egine started idling at 2000 rpms. After a few times doing this, it started climbing to 3000+ rpms. I have replaced both the IAC and the EGR. If I unplug the IAC, the car willl "run" at apprx 500 rpms. However it will stall unless I goose the gas. Once it is warm it still runs rough and still idles at 500 rpm.
the local ford mechanics said it could be the computer- they were not sure, they wanted to do ss of elimination.
the scanner shows error code for iac unplugged- no error code when iac is plugged in.
any idea's.
Thanks
