Mass Air Flow Sensor
Hi, I'm new here but have been on other boards for years. I already did a search and couldn't find an answer.
I have a new to me 90 Grand Marquis with a 5.0. The car has sat for a while and lurches and hesitates often. The RPM's are constantly up and down even when warmed up. I got the car free and don't want to/can't sink alot of money into her. The above to me sounds like the MAF. I, for the life of me cannot find it on this car. I googled for pics and can't seem to find a 1990. But my parts stores all have one in stock. I don't want to waste the gas to see what it looks like there (plus I don't have the $ til this weekend). My question is, where on my car is this sensor, if I have one. I don't have anything coming off the intake hose that resembles the ones I've seen but there is a harness and clip attached to a housing near the intake manifold. I undid the clip and the car seemed to idle better from doing that. Could that be it? Please help!
Great board by the way! I've lurked here before, had a '92 Sable before this one.
