gaspricessuc Update, took it to my ford dealership, found a bad wire in a maf harness so they fixed that and replaced something else, only is throwing two more codes now, a intake runner code, there is a bad wire there, and a fuel pressure, they noticed the gas tank was dropped so they were thinking when the person put the tank up they crushed the harness.

already giving them $410 to fix the maf problem, also the maf elbow was backwards.

Here is the pic with the new hub cap on and new grey seat in -_-

whynotthinkwhynot Well if it can't be turned around, then maybe that tube was put in backwards. Did you look at the holes in the MAF as I described to see if it was turned around the right way?

If it's pointed the right way, then it is not the problem unless the wiring is damaged somehow. From what you described, it could be the TPS, you'll have to get out your multi-meter and test it to see if the resistance is correct.

gaspricessuc Got rid of the elbow and blue connector and intake does sit between battery and headlight, and maf can not be turned around.

also a reply on focaljet

"There should be a place for an air straightener a white grid plastic peice that fits in the end of the MAF tube, that should face down toward the filter. I don't know if that's your problem but it's worth a try."

whynotthinkwhynot For correcting flow on the MAF- it's flat, looks like a credit card sort of. There are 2 holes that the air flows through. One is near the connector, and one is on the opposite corner. The one nearest the connector is where the air flows out, and the one furthest away from the connector is where air flows in.

If that's not the problem then you need to post a thread in General Technical Chat. This particular thread should be in Duratec Performance. Moving it to Tech chat won't do you any good. People who answer threads in there don't usually answer new threads with 3 pages. Once we get a problem, we latch on to it until it's resolved, then move on.

If you want, you can mess with your buddy. Ask him how he thinks you're supposed to change the timing belt since the valve cover doesn't have a timing belt inspection cover.

Moved to Duratec Performance.

goinloco1 meant get rid of the elbow and blue connector. the filter will then sit behind the headlight.

gaspricessuc ill try turning it around. not sure what you mean by the second part. it does have that after market shit in it.
10-21-2012 11:59 PM
goinloco1 unbolt and turn the maf 180, its in backward. either that or the car doesn't like the conglomeration that's being called a cai(try using just the maf housing with the filter sticking behind the headlight).

gaspricessuc they pulled out each plug and they were all fine, the plugs kinda under the fuel rail? i was texting so i saw out of the corner of my eye. fuel pump turns on when car is on you can hear it loud and clear.

like i said when the maf harness is connected to the maf sensor on the intake, it runs like shit, but when it is off, it runs fine, well obviously not fun but it doesn't try to buck/die

decided to take a pic of how low it is around the tire while i pulled over one time.
