For the rough start, fill the fuel tank and add 2 bottles of the strongest STP injector cleaner. Use brake cleaner to spray clean the MAF sensor. Use brake cleaner and a tooth brush to clean the throttle body. Fill a spray bottle with sea foam cleaner, with the air filter removed and the engine at 2000 rpms, spray all the contents into the throttle body. If the plugs are older than 70k then install new motorcraft plugs.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
