think that your vacuum hoses are leaking causing actuators to not actuate, sensors to not sense and a tremendous vacuum leak leading to high idle and stalling...recommend you get rid of all butyl rubber lines which decay and crack with silicone ones---you'll be happy and your systems will work the way they should~

yes yes. Or perhaps the idle air control valve is acting up.

if your TAURUS wont IDLE,clean the throttle body with a nylon brush and some carb cleaner. ENG OFF, take the big hose off at the throttle body, hold the throttle open with one hand and spray the black crud inside the bore and on the plate, scrub it out and spray again, make sure the hose isnt torn and reattach. its going to run rough when you start it but should smooth out in a minute
