2001 Ford Taurus

Asked by Nov 23, 2015 at 09:52 PM about the 2001 Ford Taurus SES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok, so I have a 2001 Taurus. I get in in the
morning let it warm up before I go, drops
down to a normal idol. Once it put it in drive
though it will idol up a little and starts
rocking. Once it starts I can cut on my
lights and they flicker with the idol of the
car. Had them test the battery and
alternator and both check out. Has all new
plugs and wires, cleaned out the idol
control sensors with CRC mass air flow
sensor cleaner ( recommended but
advance auto) but still doing the same thing
. Also today once I stopped at a light or
anywhere it will start doing the same as
above but it shuts off on me. Please help.

Did you clean the MAF sensor too? Is the CEL on? Also you shouldn't have to warm the car up, start it up, let it run for less than a min and take off.
