Question about 1995 Ford Probe
Its a 1993 ford probe gt,the tube running from the air filter to the intake was cracked and replaced.that fixed the problem for about 2 weeks and now it is doing the same thing as it was with the crack.does that tell me it is the mass air flow sensor? it dies when it is all the way warmed up but you can keep it running if you give it a little gas but when it idles down it peters out
Follow this procedure I use for these kinds of stalls, please rate this info, thanks..
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
