Find all posts by Ford 2. Find More Posts by 02themax. I replaced mine and noticed that the actual piping near the bottom seemed to have melted.

Even the new one leaks a bit - poor design IMO. Close Save changes. Nope, I agree with him 02themax. As soon as you push the start button it will begin to studder, so how are you gonna fix the problem after it already occured lol??

I'd be grateful of any tips with this? And if you really want to get them cleaned up even better and stop all the rough idling, take the intake off yourself and clean all the black stuff off anywhere you see it.

Thanks for the input guys. Thanks From: Your name or email address: Often, a check engine light will illuminate of the engine computer cannot adequately regualte engine idle speed. If I drive the car without the MAF sensor connected, could this cause any damage? If it is the head gasket, the other symptoms will follow as time goes by.
