Hey everyone, new here, i'm Mo :)
i have a 2003 crown victoria lx, with 180,000km on it, that i bought like two months ago, and its great, except for the fuel, its horrible.
20liters of fuel gets me 40-50km
you do the math, btw i never floored it, and i was very light on the pedal, but it was mostly city driving.
and when i do floor it, its not that different to be honest which is weird
a very slight difference, to me the fuel is going fast either way.
i recently changed my manifold, all spark plugs, gasket, coils, and serviced it and it didnt make a difference, although those for another problem which was the manifold, anywayz went back to the garage today, and the dude told me to get an air flow meter sensor thing 'the one connected to the air intake' but hes not sure that the prob, and he says there's no way to check, unless you buy the part and check for yourself, he said it either that or the computer
Thats like 800dollars and hes not sure if that would fix it.
i would appreciate any advice on how/what to do
btw bought the car used it for 2 weeks, the manifold problem came up, kept it at showroom to be sold, and some ****ers test drove my car, broke the ajustable pedal, and hit the front right tier on a pavement, so my alignment is horrible, it goes to the right
oh yeah they also ****ed up my drive shaft.
the thought of selling had crossed my mind again, but damn its a comfortable car, it might not be fast, or handle that well, but i can fall asleep in it, if i do sell it ill probably end up with a corolla which is not ideal for a dude thats 6,1 and weights 140kg
just remembered when i start the car: sometimes it takes a few second like every normal car like chick chick chick and voom
and sometime my vic just goes chickvoom, that fast, less then a second.
my a/c goes warm when i floor it too, car feels very weak when the a/c fan is on high
my car makes a ''kreieek'' sound sometimes when changing gears while flooring, from the engine compartment
btw does anyone know what a black thing, that looks like a card reader with a red light called V.T.P is doing under my steering wheel, its not stock thats for sure
im sorry for asking so many questions, thought they maybe related, thanks
