1st off thanks in advance for any help !!!! :thumbsup:


i have a 95 limited 4x4 4.0 OHV auto ( current mileage is 100,088)
only has one mod ( k & N c.a.i. )

KN_57_2536_s.jpg


it has a weird intermittent bucking & shaking. with a serious lack of power. & sometimes it just doesnt have any power.
other times it drives perfect good power & trans shifts great.
i checked the fluid it a couple days ago & its perfect it was changed @ 80 K

i changed all plugs wires, pcv ,coil packs, fuel filter,NEW FORD I.A.C. & all fluids & transfer case service o2 sensors @ 80 K

and dont know if this matters but its still got the stock exhaust from the manifolds all the way back

How long has the K&N been in, was the oil bled off the filter prior to install, and has the MAF been cleaned since it's been installed

id defintely clean the MAF as well as all other important electrical connections. you could also have plugged cats, i had the same symptoms as you with my 98 xlt and after i cleaned the MAF and gutted the cats those problems have been non existent for about 3 months. id also clean and or replace your idle air control valve and hit it with a treatment of sea foam.

well i`ll update you all

i cleaned the maf. it was fine for a couple hrs then went right back to acting up so i talked to a mech friend who deals in old trucks & he said something about a barometric air pressure sensor possibly being bad & my maf was bad also so i unplugged the maf. & started the truck & it ran pretty close to perfect & then drove around the block ( as i was told to do ) it didnt buck or heistate or jerk me around & had lots of power

so tomorrow i`m going & buying a B.A.P. & a M.A.F. ( i`m guessing a BAP is like a air intake sensor on my 03-cobra )

will update you guys tomorrow :thumbsup:

Measures barometric air pressure. If you didn't have one, your fuel mixture would be off depending on the air pressure of the ambient air.

Not quite the 50 hp increase you expected from a cold air intake huh? I don't understand why anyone would deliberately place oil upstream of the MAF. Glad to hear you fixed it.
