its a ford torous and it runs horrible. this has a REALLY bad miss when you first start it cold and will hardly run. once it warms up it smooths right out. any ideas? I dumped a bottle of injector and fuel system cleaner into the tank and filled it up before i left it with her. hasn't been long enough to tell if it helped though.
fuel consumption on that car as always been high, she only gets about 13 to 15 MPG... and has been for a long time. checking for a MAF screen shouldn't be hard anyhow. I'll just have to do that over easter when i see her next
Wasn't aware it had a MAF screen, I was referring to the actual sensor. Anywhere past 60k on the sensor and it'* a roll of the dice when it starts.
Start off by just unplugging the sensor entirely. If nothing changes, then try cleaning the sensor with some rubbing alcohol, a q-tip, and a steady hand. Gently blow it dry, and try it if that'* the case.
The mileage may be her driving style, or it could be pointing to a bad MAF or maybe even a hung injector.
