    Hello all! New to this site, and looking forward to learning and sharing ideas with everyone!

     

    Unfortunately, I start with a problem with the CSVT I just bought. I purchased it with the "Check Engine" light on, knowing it was running lean in banks 1 and 2 (P0171 and P0174). It was also bucking under acceleration, much like starving for fuel. Also stalled a couple times at stop lights. These were all annoying for my first week of owning my first SVT (Had a 86 Stang GT, sold it in favour of a house! lol) But I did my research, and narrowed it down to a bad MAF Sensor and leaking intake gaskets. I didn't fool around, took it to a SVT Dealer, and got it diagnosed. Sure enough, intake gaskets were dried out and sucking in air. Also, the MAF was reading low, and this concerned the mechanic, warned me that it likely needed replacing as well. I had them do the Intake manifold gaskets, and decided to wait on the MAF, see if I could get away with only $600 worth of work instead of $1000! Well, drove away, stopped at Timmy's for a coffee, and on came the "Check Engine" light again. So, I decided I'd replace the MAF Sensor, but not with the $300 Ford rebuilt, but with an Aftermarket rebuilt. (Cardone) So replaced it saturday, reset the cpu, and things were okay. No light, ran better. Still had a slight hesitation on acceleration still though. But I did notice the part number on the rebuilt sensor was not the same as mine. (the original pulled was F67F-12B579-BA) I could see the new one reads 97BB-12B579-AA. I'm getting just outside my knowledge here, but would like to learn and understand these things (the Mustang was Air Density...lol) If anyone might be able to help me understand or figure this out, I'd appreciate it!

  3. Well, i mean a different clay. Yup! Clayed the car last weekend. Who'd have thought a piece of what looks like silly putty would do such wonders?? Car looks better now than when I bought it second hand from the dealership. I used the Mother's kit that included the bar,detailer and carnauba wax for $16 at Advance Autoparts. Most important of all, it got rid of the mess the Fuxit wash had left me with. Never again will I take my car to one of these places! As for mods this week: First off I dyed the rear deck a cherry red to go with the dash etc. Took a bit of time and a couple of star drives but looks really good. I had thought about replacing the deck with new carpet or something, but Im an impatient bastard, so there we have it. Also while I was in there, I removed the center seatbelt. Currently waiting on the clearcoat on my spoiler to cure so I can get that put on soon. Ordered some red/silver decals for the wheels and emblems and also a Remus stainless dual tip muffler for the ass end. The wife wont like it, but then - she 'aint drivin' it !!

     

    Will probably have some new pics next monday.
