SOURCE: i found water in my air intake. what kind of

First start the car to operating temps and check all hoses for any small pin holes that could have sprayed onto your air intake. If you find nothing then it could possibly be a blown intake manifold gasket that is leaking into your air intake

Where is the iatsensor in a 2000 ford explorerwith a 40 sohc engine repair book says it is in the intake tube but i is not . where else should i look for it and what does it look like

IAT sensor ( Intake Air Temperature sensor) is in the air intake tubing by the air cleaner. It is about the size of a spark plug and has 2 or 3 wires plugging into it. Just look for wires going into rubber intake tubing and you found it. Hope this helps.

Air Conditioner leaking into passenger side of 1999 Ford Escort. Need to locate drain line to clean it out...Found leaves and debris in barrel fan... how to keep keep leaves out... THANKS!

The water leaking is caused by the evaporator drain being stopped up. Look under the car in the area of the firewall on the passenger side and try to find the end of a rubber hose the water is supposed to drain from. Clear it out with air pressure.

The leaves will usually work their way in from the fresh air intake below the wipers. Keep it cleared off to prevent them from getting to the fan.

Windstar 2000 3.8. Runs fine. Checked for codes and got p0171 and p0174. Cleaned the MAF sensor. Went to erase codes and found the there is a third one in there now. p0113. What is wrong?

The upper intake manifold gaskets and isolators (the bolts that hold the manifold down) leak and cause the p0171 and p0174. The reason they leak is due to a missing baffle in the front valve cover which allows some oil into the upper intake which swells the gaskets and wears them. The manifold gaskets and valve cover should be replaced. But before having this done check to see if the black plastic hose on the back of the rubber intake hose(between the throttle body and maf) has dislodged. This happens alot when a new air filter is installed and will cause the same codes.

What is causing a P1131 code on 2000 ford excursion?

P1131----- H2Os-11 running lean.
Here are some possible causes:
Dirty or malfunctioning mass air flow sensor ( mounted in the air intake hose that goes from the air filter to the throttle plate).
Vacuum hose leaking
Intake manifold gasket leaking air
Low fuel pressure
Dirty fuel injectors
This is where testing has to be done to pin point the cause without having to replace things you don't need to.

A/c switches to heat at 2000 rpm`s

sounds like a vacuum leak i have run into that several times. however i haven't found any common place for the leak. i have found some under the dash, on the back of the intake manifold, and i have found them at vacuum resivors. i wish you luck. usually you can find leaks easily using propane. rarely i have seen a bad check valve cause this problem, but that is a possibility as well. hope i was helpful to you.. dustang

2001 ford crownvictoria 4.6L #3 cylinder not firing what could be the problem

Most likely a bad coil pack. But it could be a number of things like spark plug,coil pack,wiring to them,fuel injector or wiring,bad driver in computer or an internal engine problem causing no compression in cylinder.

2000 focus engine surgeing on tickover

Here is what you need to do, a cleaning of the intake throttle blade and the idle speed control air-bypass 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
