Hope you use the recommended spray cleaner. (Don't know what it is.) Because it was replaced, but remember to be very careful with the two prongs. Spray them well, but don't touch them as well.

Great. I gotta use a certain type of cleaner? I'll have to look into that.
Also, someone else told me that if the MAF is unplugged then the car might start but run on the rich side. Did anyone hear of this before?
I'll try it later today, I have nothing to lose.

I have a 1996 Marquis and have already posted my experience with that kind of problem a while ago. Before you open the MAF and try to clean it, unplug it and see if the car is running wild but also better. If it is doing that, itīs probably the MAF. I tried to clean it like many said on the internet, but that didnīt help, I had do get a new one!!
Some people reported, that after thy cleaned it, 3 month or so later they had to buy a new MAF anyway..

Hi Ref. my comment on the use of a chemical cleaner - The mechanic used a "Carburator choke cleaner" to clean the MAF on my 96. That was two years ago and it is still running "ok".

Well it turned out not to be the MAF. I guess I had a couple spark plug wires that had very high resistance. I just got fed up with this problem and took it in to the local shop. It cost me $70 for them to tell me the problem, its worth it to me.
I'll change all the plugs and wires tomorrow and see how that goes.
Feb 22, 2009 (5:01 pm)
All fixed. Runs great, like a new car again.
All this over plug wires.....they even looked new under the hood before I changed them. They wanted to charge me $230 to replace the plugs/wires with labor. I got the parts at autozone for about 70 bucks and it took me 45 minutes.
I'm ready to roll!
Thanks all for your help and insight!

is there any way to bypass the computer on my 84 cv and put a regular carb on it instead of the throttle body carb? I want to put a 4bbl carb and intake on it. The throttle body carb is giving me problems.

My car currently has 145000 mile and the car runs good but the gear seems to shift when I speed going up hill or whenever a speed like a clicking sound. The lights on the radio has gone out and want to bring it back. What is the average cost to replace the rear differential fluid? What kind of services do I need to do?..
