I just bought a '95 Taurus wagon. Runs fine, although I bought
it because I thought it would get better gas milage than my Jeep.
Seems like it idles fast, too..
HOT 1000RPM in neutral?
15~16MPG? This is a 3.0 liter.
Are these out of the ordinary?
The Jeep, 4.0 liter BOX shaped thing actually gets slightly better
milage.. And is loaded also. Laredo.
I was thinking maybe O2 sensors (2 of them on the Taurus) but maybe
simpler... Is there a temp sensor that is separate from the temp
gauge that might be saying the engine is still cold? (higher idle -
And if I may ask, what kind of milage should I expect?
Thanks for any help!
