Re: 2003 Taurus dying. I hear vacuum leak
Start feeling around, check hoses for cracks, feel around the intake as best as you can. Check the DPFE sensor (EGR pressure sensor) hoses and the sensor itself, it will have two thicker hoses going to it from tubes going towards the exhaust manifold and intake manifold.
