Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
Hello I have a 1996 Ford taurus which through a code for a bad MAF sensor. I cleaned it and put it back in with the same code. I just Spent $103 on a brand new MAF and it still chuggs and stalls at idle. Also revs up upon start. Does anyone know what this could be????? PLEASE HELP!!!
You need to check for an intake leak, use a can of carb spray and spray around the top of the engine, if a leak is there the engine will change speed when you get near the leak with the spray.
Remember a sensor trouble code does not mean the part is bad, it means there is a problem with the signal from that sensor, it can be the sensor or the wiring to name a few. For instance a bad injector can give you a O2 sensor code.

Did you buy a Ford MAF sensor? There are some brands that are not reliable or accurate. Buy a Ford MAF sensor, if your mechanic has decided that the MAF is faulty. You may have a leaking fuel injector, bad coolant temp sensor,bad oxygen sensor,dirty air filter, clogged exhaust system.
