Hello - Hoping someone can assist with a problem I've had with an '89
Taurus 3.0. Car runs fine except when I disconnect the battery for any
reason. Then it fails to idle - it stalls if I take my foot off the gas.
Happened last winter and again last week. Corrected itself after a month
the last time. Someone suggested the computer needs reseting. If so,
how? Appreciate any thoughts you might have --
the manual that came with my 90 said disconnecting the battery would reset
the computer, and once reconnected and started to let it run for 2 minutes
without touching the gas pedal for it to relearn the idle, but I suppose if
it wont idle this could be a problem.
