Amen. I usually skip the posts.I'm sorry, but this is garbage, trolling of the first order. Bad on me for feeding the troll but it needed to be said.
If you don't get stalling any other time, I don't suspect the crankshaft position sensor.
I would take the MAF (mass air flow sensor) off and use a spray meant to clean electronic
sensors. It contains two fine wires that are cooled by the air going over them. They collect
dirt particles on them. The MAF is held on by two security torx screws--they have the little
dimple in the middle so it takes a special bit on the end of the tool.
I would also think about having the intake cleaned around the butterfly throttle plate.
That area gets gunked up with blowback gases from the crankcase when the car is
turned off. The layer of gunk affects the air that bleeds past the throttle plate when it
moves from dead off at idle to slightly off idle. Does the throttle ever feel like it
sticks the first time you move it after the car has sat and is totally cold overnight?
Along that line too, the IAC (idle air control valve) is on the throttle area with the
MAF and it bleeds air past it's nozzle. The IAC is adjusting constantly to bleed the
right amount of air through; if the throttle plate is very gunked up,
the IAC may not keep up quick enough, hence the stall.
The gunk inside the throttle where its nozzle
sits can affect it as well. So it might help to be taken off and cleaned carefully so
that chemical doesn't go down into the valve's working parts.
I'd try a good car wash soap in a bucket with a hand mitt or towel to actually see if the film of theOK, need expert advice for my son. He got hydraulic fluid sprayed on his car (some front loader in a parking lot sprang a leak). ran it through a touchless a couple of times, but still has a film. What is the best way to clean this? Normal car wash cleaner/degreaser, followed by a good wax job? anything special for this situation?
additives as well as the oil comes off. If it doesn't, try Dawn. This will remove wax and everything, but you probably want to rewax the car anyhow. Dawn is considered the ultimate oil remover. I recall when a truck load of animal fats on its way to a body lotion manufacturer in Cincy overturned on a tight interstate curving ramp. They brought in 5 gallons buckets of Dawn to emulsify the fats.
Convenient that Dawn is a Proctor Gamble product, a Cincinnati-based company.
Am I the only one who thinks those wheels rate about 2 on a scale of 10. There are lots ofall we can do is pray that, against all historical odds, they don't screw up the production version
better designs for a car of that ilk.
Mike has found his medicine. AND I see OldFarmer has found HIS medicine!OF, I know you're joking now but just wait until you get froggy passing a couple of semis. The 5.0 is so powerful that you can go from 75 to 105 in a couple of seconds like passing a pair of semis. I know because it happened to me. I was shocked by how quickly it accelerated. There seems to be no top end or lack of fuel/air. I just goes really fast and does it more quickly at higher speeds. Hey Hey, be careful out there.
