Thank you for the reply.
Allan Vigil Ford did the check on the car. They replaced the fuel pump, AND the fuel rail. In fact, they replaced the fuel pump TWICE. This cost me a lot of money. I went back and asked for a computer check of the car to help track down the issue, and all they did was an OBD
II check and wanted $88.00.
Well, I got on this forum and using forscan, and my own OBD
II meter started to try and save some money. Just went down the list of things that could be wrong.
I'm not new to cars, but I am new this mess of electric craziness.
The car runs great. It starts right up, and little bit lumpy at idle until it warms up, but then it's great.
Has a new pcv
valve and new hoses.
Fact is, based on the recommendation of the FORD dealer above, I replaced the MAF
twice. The first one was aftermarket, and the Ford dealer said it needed a FORD part. SO I got one.
I guess I'm just a fool. All I wanted was this car for my Grand daughter.
Problem is, I'm stuck with it. Can't register it, can't sell it with the Check engine light on, and NO one seems to be able to tell me whats wrong.
I finally started working with a local tune up shop, and they are good people and did a complete check of the car for me with a big computer and we went over the car together. They could find nothing wrong. and DIDN"T charge me to two hours of diagnosis time since they found NOTHING.
A smoke test has not been done, but so many cans of carb cleaner has been sprayed in the engine compartment looking for a vac leak that you can now EAT off the engine bay it is so clean. I replaced all the small vac hoses, and all the bigger ones have been taken off and checked and the car run with and without in hope of finding a leak.
Anyone want to make an offer and this turkey? Only 48,000 miles on it. the rear electric windows stopped working about 5 or 6 years ago. Has new switches and the wires in the door are not broken. Another electrical mystery.
