Well I went to the well known mechanic that lives around here(his shop is actually right outside of my neighborhood). I explained to him the situation, and he told me the car hasnt been driven enough for oxygen sensors or anything like that to happen. But he says it still possible, the man is so nice, that his gave me a free bottle of Gumout Professional: Complete Fuel System Cleaner. I even was expecting to pay, but he said dont worry about it.
But back to his diagnosis, he explained to me that I should put this in my fuel tank and drive around with it for about a week, and if the problem stops then we will know it was something to do with the fuel system, if not then he will check the o2 sensors, as well as, check the MAF sensor. This man is very knowledgeable and I trust his judgement. I explained to him about having a hard start in the morning, its not that hard to start, it just cranks an extra second. So I am hoping that this will solve the problem, as it says it fixes the symptoms that I have noticed.
Although, i would like to ask. P0174 error codes, aren't codes that will cause damage to the car if driven, right? I was told by mechanics/auto zone workers. I would like your insight.
If someone would help me on this though i would greatly appreciate it. Where is the MAF sensor located in a 1995 cougar V8? I dont want to shovel out $35+ for a repair manual
