2001 Ford Crown Victoria V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 65000 miles
My engine stalls periodically mostly after I start it for the 1st start up of the day. Periodically it runs normal. I carefully check and cleaned the mass air flow sensor per instruction and check the wires in the air mass sensor to ensure its not damaged and replaced the air filter… after doing so the engine seemed to run and perform great. Next morning it started and idled fine. The next day at 1st start up the engine continues to stall. I did notice black smoke from the exhaust after starting it again from a stall. Other days it seems to run fine. Is it possibly the mass air flow sensor going bad?
Thanks for your time,
have the same problem?
