Replaced idle air sensor and air flow mass sensor car still wheeze when started

Asked by Apr 01, 2014 at 02:10 AM about the 2001 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


The MAF Sensor won't make a noise and there's no such thing as an Idle Air Sensor. If you're hearing a wheeze type noise on start-up and only on start-up the Bendix drive in the starter is dry or failing. We see a lot of noisy starters on our fleet.
