Question Accelleration Problems!!!:(

hey if anyone could give me their opinions on why my 03 v6 mustang seems like it's messed up id 'preciate it..... i just bought it yesterday and now i am noticing a wierd 'stall' when i am slightly accellerating from a stop... it's kindda like it wants to go but something is holding it back..... kindda like it is sputtering, but when i give it some gas it runs fine. i am pretty sure i don't have a lemon, due to the fact that the dealership i bought it from is pretty reputable..i was thinking maybe something to do w/ the fuel line.. like maybe a fuel filter, but wouldn't they have checked stuff like that since i JUST bought it.... i just HOPE that its not in the transmission ..... anyone have any advice or if u have heard of this problem and a fix???? thx

9 times out of 10, your MAF is dirty.

The dealership may want you to replace it, but all it takes is computer contact cleaner.

Just spray it liberally on the sensor, DON'T TOUCH THE WIRE.

It's not the transmission.

He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

It's the Mass Air Flow Sensor, located directly behind the airbox.

Take off the air box, look in the tube, and you'll see it.

Just spray the sensor with computer contact cleaning solution.

That sounds almost like a broken MAF, any CELs come on?

When my MAF wasnt pluged in, IE wasn't woprking the car wouyld liek lag then be fine, so either the MAF is dirty as hell or broken, in my opinion.


oops caught this one too late, sorry man, good catch KS haha.
