Re: 2005 Ford Taurus - Surging
Latest Update -
I changed the oil but it did nothing, except what changing the oil normally does. Kind of glad (that it wasn't as stupid as not changing the oil like I should) but I would have liked to have the issue resolved at that point. A bit of a two edged sword.
I decided to go ahead and prove my insanity and replace the TPS sensor yet again, from a different brand and parts store altogether. So far it is working fine however the temperature has dropped considerably from where it was at (was 95-100 now its 70-80).
I also looked into some information on the IAC Valve due to its connectivity directly to the TPS. I took it off and it looked like the ports could use a little bit of cleaning, regardless of whether or not this is the cause of my issues. It'll cost $65'ish to get a new part so i'm more keen to clean as opposed to replace yet. Plus, everything i've read says everything to do with idle and pulling off from a stop but nothing about cruising at steady speeds. Figured its worth a shot. I hope for warmer weather to drive my car in to see how it acts with the hotter weather but the cooler weather makes it nicer for washing the car, house, doing yardwork, etc... all that married man stuff haha.
Thanks again, will update when something changes!
