Flys gathering on my patio, in a shaded area under my balcony

I have an outside patio area that has a balcony above it. For some reason I have a lot of flys that seem to always group together in this one particular area. It is quite annoying. We have lit citronella candles and oil lamps that seems to help, but I don't understand why they want to gather there. It is a shaded area in the SF Bay Area. It doesn't matter if it 60 or 80 degrees outside. They just seem to keep coming. I would love some help

Car acts like it is running out of gas

never heard of this before and iam in spain where it gets hot,this is a catch 22 type problem with a domino effect.Change this and that and still no cure just a big bill for parts,try this first park car in shade and then start car and drive with AC on recirculate ,see if still does it with the interior of the vehicle kept cool ,if its ok then a component inside the car causing problems,if it persists then its a component under the bonnet causing the if its inside the car then it has a high probability of being the ECU ,if its under the bonnet then it could be a mass air flow sensor??or something on the inlet manifold

The message center shows incorrect outdoor temperature. It reads about 25 degrees higher than outside temp.

I would suspect that the connection to the outside temperature sensor is not good or the sensor itself is bad. Check the connection and clean and reattach as necessary. Otherwise replace the sensor. I think they're pretty reasonably priced.

The outside air temperature sensor for a 2000 Windstar is located under the front bumber on the passengers side. It is clearly visible if you lay down and look through the lower two air openings in the plastic bumper. It is the only electrical device in that area and it is made of black plastic.
