rjacket A tip if you'd like to like to ship anything overseas.

There are shipping forwarding companies who will accept deliveries and then forward them to any address. They will even consolidate shipments.

I used such a company in Oregon to receive an iMac and had them ship it to me in California.

For somebody in France, you may want to find a similar company on the east coast, preferably in a no or low sales tax state.

KillrRABBIT You need to clean the MAF sensor, the IAC valve, and the throttle body.
If you can get it there in France,Walmart sells a package that contains everything you need.


less than $8 American. (About 7 Euro)

There are good videos on doing all of this on YouTube.

Just search YouTube for "Taurus clean IAC" or "Taurus clean MAF"

That should take care of all idle issues.

ANY idle issues, this is what you should do first.

Rabbit out!

95TaurusinSK That big pipe is your exhaust pipe. Something above it appears to be leaking. Since it appears to have no smell, I'm guessing it's just condensation from your air conditioner (which has a drip line from the condenser that might be somewhere nearby. If that's the case, it would be totally normal to find moisture dripping under the car from the air conditioner (when it's running).

On the other hand, it could be something else. I'm sure somebody else will be able to help more.

havasu Hello, I will try to find what these pipes do, yesterday I did 600km (370 Mile) on the highway everything is fine but when I'm in town it becomes hell!
The car stalls constantly when I stop. I also noticed that when I arrived home (about 1 hour later) there was water flowing from below ...
I took some pictures, do you know what it's all about? She had never done that! Thank you for your answers .
Water flows under the passenger side. No smell, not oily.

sheila Iirc, 3rd hose runs to the black plastic vacuum manifold box mounted on the drivers firewall above the brake master cylinder reservoir. Marked A/I (air intake)?

Two provide fresh air to the valve covers. It is metered since it had been through the MAF. That metered air passes trough the MAF, then through the engine, then through the PCV and back to the intake. Thus measured air flow takes a round a bout cleansing of the crankcase and goes back to the engine intake. If there is a leak in these, unmetered air goes through the engine and makes for measuring error of air flow. I forgot what the third hose does.

havasu Good evening my friends, I found this pipe that starts to blow (flow meter) and goes to the back of the engine.
I saw this hole and it's not normal because it does not rotate properly. I think it will be difficult to find in France ....
If anyone can help me? Thank you

havasu Hello everyone . I come back because my worries advance (a little). After seeing a few people, it is quite possible that it comes from an air intake on an intake hose.
If it happened to someone who is following this post,
I would like to know towards hose I must look. Thank you in advance for your answers . Have a good day
PS: I usually order at Rockauto but there is no "hose kit".
