Question about 2001 Ford Crown Victoria
Replaced idle control sensor and air flow mass sensor and still wheezing sound when car starts also dies out when car is stopped.replaced starter ,battery, terminals, replaced fuel pump one year ago.
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.

SOURCE: TOO LEAN CODES
yes very very common code for these motors i get them all the time. now the first thing i do is listen to the pcv valve for noise if it is rattling this is the problem and is the most common of all. another thing is the intakes leak from cracks in them but the only way to find it is with a smoke machine. now the one other thing i have seen before is debre like a leaf in the mass air flow sensor but you have replaced it so most likely no that.
do your self a favor and change the pcv valve it only cost under 5 dollars. if this is not it you will need to find the leak in and around the intake or a vacuum hose.
because you have two lean banks this mean if it is a leak then it has to be in common with both banks and that is the vacuum line system intake etc...
let mew know if you have any more question. good luck man

Sound like you have a big vacuum leak. Check the hoses that attch the PCV valve on the valve cover on the passenger side. Also reach way back on top of the engine there's another hose there that is known for going bad. The dealer has those hoses and they call it the Heated PCV valve hose assembly. Very common problem.

I have a 98 Windstar and it would die when pulling up to a stop sign, slowing when coming to a stop or making a slow turn. According to Ford recall 98E03 EMISSIONS RECALL some vehicles may stall during deceleration when coming to a stop, during slow speed parking maneuvers and/or coasting thru slow sweeping turns. This may be caused by the Powertrain Contro lModule (PCM) calibration dropping the rpms too quickly during deceleration. This involves reprograming the PCM. The revised calibration will allow the engine rpms to drop slowly during low speed maneuvers to reduce the possibility of a stall. Call your local FORD dealership (have your VIN handy) and have them check to see if this recall has been performed on your vehicle.
