Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. The top three would be an air/vacuum leak, bad TPS sensor or a bad MAP/MAF sensor (depening on the set up)

You said it has a dirty MAF? Was it cleaned and was there any improvement?

Ford Mechanic: AMEDEE, FORD TECHNICIAN replied 2 years ago

If not, it is possible that the MAF is simply bad. Just because it was cleaned does not mean it is good. It still can be bad causing these symptoms

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
