Thread: Cold stalling solved

  1. #1

    Default Cold stalling solved

    Hello I had posted a message about my 97 Marquis having a cold stall when put in gear. The problem was solved by putting in an O.E. Mass air flow sensor. The Duralast just wasn't right for the car. So always use O.E. equipment on critical components such as this. Thanks for the reponses.

    Thanks for getting back to the forum with that. It helps out a lot in the future hearing back what cured an ailment.

    X2 on what 87gtVIC said.

    Also why I hoard functional OE parts, I haven't had too many good experiences with aftermarket stuff.

    People don't realize that those aftermarket units flow completely different than the OEM. It will be good enough, but the computer will be compensating for it. It's always better for sensors like that to be OEM.

    Good news and x4 on good sharing. This is good info for everyone. We are finding more and more sensors that just seem to work better when OEM.
