in my auto shop ( i am a junior, and go to school for auto mechanics) i got to bring in my truck today and do the spark plugs, and spark plug wires.
what a trick this was. ford really didnt care about the people who would be working on the motor later on down the road. i had a hard time putting my hands in some of spots to get those plugs out, and not to mention the way they routed the wires, ( i bout this truck used so its possible someone did the wires before me, and rerouted them there own way, but by pulling the plugs it looks like these plugs havent been done in a longg timee if at all. this truck has around 115 k on it now)
i also have had problems with my truck losing power at 3 grand and then instanly start pulling again. so today i tried taking the mass air flow sensor off, but didnt have enough time. so after school i unplugged this sensor completely and ran it. Only for a few minutes though, and the problem i had dissapeared, and these sensors cost around 250-300 bucks. so what i think im gonna do is just try and clean it some way. my friend had a similiar issue, and just cleaned the sensor. anyone have any good suggestions on what i could use to clean this sensor with?
