    2000 ford ranger 2.5 liter still spark knocks sometimes after new spark plugs & wires. Have cleaned mass air flow sensor. new air filter.

Had a similar problem and it just ended up being the sensor for the EVAP controls.  Stupid I know but it fixed the rough idle. Error code was P1443. Worth a try.

1996 t bird 4.6l idles up and down

If it idles up and down real high, its the throttle body sensor. If it's a low up and down idle and runs rough it is mass air flow meter. If you unplug the mass airflow meter and it will just low idle (no up & down) then the mass air flow meter is bad.

98 ford ranger 4.0L runs very rough when mass air flow sensor is plugged in. runs, but still a little rough but drivable when unplugged. tried new sensor, still the same. any ideas?

did you try cleaning the idle control valve and the egr valve out with carb cleaner.try that before replacing any parts,also if there is any codes in the system those should also lead you in the right direction.

1996 buick LeSabre runs rough at 50 mph

Sounds like low fuel pressure. i.e. fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, or fuel filter.

Runs rough when cruising at 35-40 mph

try pulling off the air breather hose and look inside at the mass air flow sensor,it looks like a wire with a diode hooked to it incase you didnt know,see if there is any fuzz on it,sometimes the air filter will lose small pieces and the mass air flow sensor catches it.If that doesnt work then you may have a fuel problem,weak pressure,causing the mass air flow sensor to read too much air so it tricks the computer to adjust the issue.
