confused 1995 Taurus Rough Idle

title pretty much says it... I've changed the fuel filter, ran seafoam through it to clean it all out, changed spark plugs/wires/cap/rotor.. It's kind of strange though (atleast to me) because it it only does it when I first start it (sometimes it will stall through its rough idling sometimes it wont) and it doesnt do it every time I start it... The check engine light isnt on or anything. I'm going to go get some MAF cleaner in a little bit and try that.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Re: 1995 Taurus Rough Idle

Could try replacing engine coolant temp sensor . This lets the ecu know how much fuel to supply to engine , i,e more fuel when starting from cold .

Re: 1995 Taurus Rough Idle

Check next to the thermostat. Probably two sensors there , one for the gauge , the other sensor with the grey connector I think is the actual CTS for the computer.

Theres only 1 by the thermostat.. i looked all over the place, and theres one that looks just like it on the intake manifold, could this be it?

Re: 1995 Taurus Rough Idle

If there is only one near the thermostat , the one on the intake manifold, next to the water outlet is probably the correct sensor .

Actually the one on the intake was a "Air Charge Temperature Sensor".. it looked pretty nasty too, could this be the issue?
