96 Taurus Wagon using gas

Post by simsrw73 » Wed Jan 31, 2018 5:23 pm

My brother has a 96 Taurus Wagon LX, 3.0L that recently started using a lot of gas. It's not showing any codes. Using my OBD2 scanner, the O2 sensors are OK, IAT is OK, MAF is at 0.01 lb/s, STFTs are OK, but the LTFTs are reading +15-16 at idle and about -4 at 2500 rpm. It's running smooth now, but he says that sometimes, on cold days, it is rough until it warms up. On cold days it wants to stall if gas isn't applied.

What are our next steps to try to figure out what's going on?
