Overconsumption of gasoline

Hello everyone for a few weeks my Ford consumes a lot of gas especially when it's cold.
New air filter / change of candles made! She idles and climbs into the towers (1.200Tmn) then down, she does that a few times and cuddly.
If you had this problem, do you have a solution? . Thank you and good day

I'm guessing "candles" are what we call spark plugs? No idea how to translate 1.200T/mn into our units of measurement...but, I'm also guessing you are referring to an erratic idle rpm until the engine warms up?

Havasu, if possible, try to find a mechanic with access to a computer scan tool compatible with your car. Alternatively, you may be able to purchase one online for cheap. That would help you see if there is any issues with simple solutions. It would also help narrow the issue down to a single system, be it fuel, air, or electric.

Without commenting on whether Canadians are smarter than Americans, I'll just tell you that in France, where he's from, they drive on the right side of the road, just like we (and you!) do.

What will people think if they know that I'm a Jesus freak?
