Hello. Have you replaced the mass airflow sensor?

No, wouldn't engine code catch that!

usually it would, however there is clearly an issue that's not throwing a code, and it's consistent with a bad MAF. You could try removing it and cleaning it with mass air meter cleaner and see if anything changes. Sometimes that will help. We see failed components often that don't throw a trouble code.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

I would suggest cleaning it first, and see if it resolves or improves the symptoms.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

If cleaning it does not resolve the problem and you would like instructions on testing it, please let me know. This can be done with a digital multi meter.

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
