1997 Mondeo Missing when under no load (suspect air flow meter)
I have a 1997 Mondeo stationwagon 2.0 16v automatic.
I have had a long standing problem that occurs when I am cruising under no load. The symptons are that the car feels as if it is missing.
If I put my foot down it sometimes gives a miss but usually the problem goes away.
Recently I encountered a problem where the car would start, idle for a few seconds, then cough and die. It was found that my air flow meter was faulty, and it was replaced with a second hand one.
I am very suspicious that this unit has been (and maybe still is) my problem ... but any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
