I have not done much because i dont know much. i dont know what a mass air flow unit is or where it would be located. all i have done sofar is replace the air filter and check all the hoses and vaccum lines. we just bought this car and i dont have much money left right now to buy parts, so i was hoping that i could find out what was mybe wrong with it from you guys before i go experimenting. you mentioned the spark plugs, could it maybe be them that is causing the acceleration loss? i have a new setof plugs and wires that ibought for my 1999 windstar, dou you thik that they would fit, as i do not have enough money to buy new ones for about 2 weeks? thy look like they are the same. as i was inspecting everything, i found that a unit of some sort was not atatched correctly up by the fire wall. it has 2 vaccum lines attached to it and a clampwith a bunch of wires. i dont knowwhat it is, but it was just leaning up agaisnt he fire wallbecause the rubber pieces that the screws go through to attatch it were both cracked off. i included pictures below. is thisthe air flow sensor? if not do you know what it is? please help, this is our only transportation and we are very reliant on it!!
