2003 Taurus stalling

Post by Michjay » Tue Jun 13, 2017 7:44 pm

I have 2003 Taurus 3.0 start it up, runs great drive for a bit shut it off and when I go to start it again won't idol and will keep stalling. The only way it will start is put it in park and shut the key completely off. Any suggestions would be great

I would say scan for diagnostic codes first, and if possible use the same tool to watch live sensor readings to ensure proper fuel pressure, Idle Air Controller function, etc.
