Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Ford Taurus.  It intermittently will suddenly use a lot of gas.  Like 25 mpg
to 12 mpg.  Then it will be okay.  I have tried seafoam twice and other products.  It is
mostly okay but sometimes the mpgs will suddenly drop...randomly.  I've had codes
checked and all seems to be well.  It does have a lot of miles on it.

Give it a tune up and clean out the throttle body

I just had the plugs, wires and coil changed. Still doing the same thing. Can you tell me more about the throttle body?

I think I got it. I will try cleaning the throttle body. Thanks so much.

From what I read the throttle body does not cause that issue. I have also replaced the fuel filter, and air filter.
