Taurus

i have a Ford Taurus 2003 SES. in cold weather the car will give a hard time to idle and keeping it from shutting down, i keep trying till the engine is warm then it will be stable before that it will keep shaking and trying to die, i thought at first maybe something about the fuel not delivering the fuel correctly, i changed the fuel filter, put fuel cleaner, nothing changed. I was afraid that the fuel pump is going bad, but i was thinking if the fuel pump is dying what this have to do with the warm engine, because once its worm i can drive it for hours with no problem. which led me maybe the Idle Air control valve is bad, today i tried to disconnect it and reconnect it, to see how its going to behave and try to start the car i didn't have the chance the really test it because the car wont even crank, o tested the battery its working fine but the car wont start. i wanna add that am always noticing that the theft red is blinking when i try to start the car and make it stable. please someone help me

Re: Taurus

Have you had it scanned for codes?

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
