problem details
1994 Lincoln Town Car 67,000 mi,
Sensor cleaned with rubbing alcohol and q-tip.
It's been only 30 days when i no longer heard the noise that raise up the suspenion. all of a sudden no noise
Keep replacing the maf sensor. I recommend getting the life time warranty one from autozone and replacing it when ever the car feels robbed of power. its 4 bolts and a hose clamp and you can swap it out in under 5 minutes in the parking lot.
