I have 111k miles on my 2005 taurus se 3.0 ohv.
I changed the pcv valve today and then when starting the car, it idles rough and then dies, or it just dies instantly. if i hold down the gas, i can get it to run at higher rpms.. but it still runs rough.

any ideas what is happening?
Thanks!

sounds like false air (vacuum leak) double check to make sure both ends of the PCV hose are on tightly and that it or any other vacuum lines are split.
