Ford couldn't find any definite reason for why my 2001 Taurus DOHC, 85k miles had two evenings (2 weeks apart) that it stalled when placed into drive, and once died at a light (but restarted). It was fine for them.
They road tested it (I assume!) Did star test, pid moniter, fuel pressure was 53 psi, fuel trim and baro pids, baro 156--all ok. I don't know what all that is.
Tested the IAC duty cycle and got 54% which they say is High. They suspect it is beginning to fail. Also suggest a fuel filter.
SO, it the IAC a likely suspect and what should it cost to repair? This is the DOHC, pain in the butt, engine. The part is about $90 and they want $50 labor--1/2 hour.
They claim it looks pretty good otherwise, didn't notice any tranny issues and gave me the cheapest price (out of 3) for a power steering rack!
have the same problem?
