2000 taurus wont idle

Ran great yesterday. This morning will not start without giving it gas. When you let up it dies. Sounds fine while giving it gas . Changed plugs ( needed
them anyway) Fuel and air filters. Any Ideas 3.0l
Thanks ,Mike

Idle Speed Control, aka idle Air Bypass. the mechanism right adjacent to throttle. suspect solenoid.
