2001 Ford Taurus Front Wheel Drive Automatic

There is an occasional engine miss while in idle or drive.
Had a tuneup at 80000 miles (Midas Auto Service) but the problem still persists.

Engine running rough or misfiring can be cause by the following:

1. Defective spark plug
2. Inadequate spark/coil, defective spark plug wire.
3. Lack of compression
4. False air leakage.
5. Faulty fuel injectors.
6. Insufficient fuel pressure.
7. Contaminated fuel.
8. EGR valve that is leaking.
9. Oxygen sensors.
10. Throttle position sensor.
11. Idle air control valve.
