Crown Victoria stumbling fix

60

Asked by Nov 06, 2015 at 06:51 PM about the 2000 Ford Crown Victoria LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My fix for a  2000 Crown Victoria had a stumbling feeling when I was lightly accelerating. The fix was simple! I took starter fluid that would clean and dry itself. I opened the top of the air cleaner box and sprayed the sensor until it seemed clean. The cars computer sensed the air mixture was incorrect at the most sensitive acceleration and fuel mix and has been perfect ever since. It lights up the tires from a stop. No stumble any more.

It's best to use mass air flow sensor cleaner when doing this, but if starting fluid worked for you, that's great.
