I have a 95 3.8 . When I start it it revs up to. 3000 rpm . I put it in gear it drops to 1500 and stays there. I've checked for vacuum leaks,changed the throttle positioning sensor,changed mass airflow, o2 sensors , even a new ecu. I'm lost can anyone help?

Have you checked the dpfe. If you have a haynes manual, it will tell you the voltage specs. Get the autozone one if you do need one. I found out, after spending $100 for a "genuine" motorcraft dpfe, that they get that same piece, scrape off the logo, and sell it for a third of the price!

Diffetential pressure.... Lol. I forget the exact name, but it's vacuum lined in with the egr. It makes sure the egr is functioning properly.

You'd need a multi-meter to check it.

I Tried that also it still is revving think resetting the ecu would work?
Any time you disconnect the battery for a few min, hours, days.... It should reset the ecu. Couldn't hurt. Just make sure you have your radio code.

Well that didn't work I'm all out of ideas
You said you got a new ecu!.. Is it possible that the program in it is wrong??.... ie. idle is set real high for some reason?!?.... Don't know just trying to brainstorm a little for ya!!.....
