CelticDevilDog's MAF cleaning thread.

Here are the tools you will need:
1) CRC Mass Air Flow Sensor cleaner. Do NOT use break cleaner or anything else that is not designed for electronics. About $8 at a local parts store.
2) Flat head screw driver
3) T-20 Torx bit

The MAF is located on the driver's side of the Air filter housing

Use the screwdriver to pull the red tab out. It pulls out like a drawer and not up or down like many tabs.
Click the image to open in full size.

Gently pull the connector off the MAF. If this has never been done on your truck before you may need to use the screw driver on the red tab to give you a little more help. It should slide right off.

Next, use the T-20 torx bit to remove the two screws holding the MAF to the air filter housing. There is one on the top left of the sensor (shown below) and one on the bottom right of the sensor.
Click the image to open in full size.

Gently pull the sensor out. Be sure to not get any dirt into the air filter housing when you remove the MAF.
Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

Spray the MAF and let it dry for about 10-15 seconds. Do NOT touch the wires in the MAF with anything other than the CRC cleaner.
Click the image to open in full size.

To put it back follow the procedure in reverse order.

Cleaning the MAF is a good idea every time you change/oil your air filter as it can get dirty from all the dust and oil that may come through your air filter.

If you have any questions or there is more information I can add to this tutorial let me know.

Not saying you are wrong, but you do know there is a device that communicates between the fuel pump and the PCM and it's called a "Fuel Pump Driver Module"?

It's located above the spare over on the left side on the rear side of a semi round crossmember, factory bolted it to the frame. It has an aluminum body and the accumulation of road salts, moisture, etc leads to corosion between the aluminum body of the FPDM and the steel frame rail. Some have found their coroded so badly as to have holes in the back side and in some cases broken in pieces.

Click the image to open in full size.

I removed mine and found only minor corosion,

Click the image to open in full size.

so I cleaned it and then clearcoated it rather well,

cleaned and then painted the frame there,

Click the image to open in full size.

and reinstalled it using some home made longer 5 or 6 mm studs I made with long bolts and some spacers to space mine a good 1/4" off the frame.

Below are pics of "not good" FPDMs, it's not so rare. These are not mine.

Here's Fords answer, note the "standoff kit". That's what I duplicated with longer bolts, threaded a nylock lock nut on, sawed the head off, etc.

6. Using a Fusion Key Instead

1. PATS System
PATS stands for "Passive Anti-Theft Security". It is Fords answer to car theft.

Inside each key, there is a little RFID chip. When properly programmed, your trucks PCM reads and recognizes the RFID inside the key.

Without the proper RFID signal, the ignition system WILL NOT WORK. Motor won't even turn over...basically makes the vehicle one big paperweight. This makes it alot harder to steal a late-model Ford.



2. Purchasing a PATS Key
You have 2 options here.
2a) Buy one from the Dealership. Can run $50+ quite easily
2b) eBay! I have bought many many PATS keys from $5-10 shipped over the years. They are plentiful.



3. Programming a PATS Key
There are 2 ways to program a PATS key.
Click the image to open in full size.
3a) You have 2 PATS keys that already are programmed = FREEBIE!
Click the image to open in full size.
3b) You only have 1 PATS key programmed = Costly
Unfortunately, you must visit the Dealership, or a properly equipped Locksmith. They will have to connect a special tool to the PCM and perform the key programming for you. Roughly costs $40-50 (1/2 hour labor) for this service.



4. Programming a Remote/Fob/Clicker
No requirements here.

Simply have all the clickers with you in the truck and go to town. Extremely easy. If you don't have a clicker, eBay is your friend as usual

Click the image to open in full size.



5. Programming the Door Keypad
Again, super easy to perform...if you have the OEM Factory code. If not, you can visit the Dealership and drop some $$$...or look on the rear wall of the cab. There is a lock control module with the code printed on a white sticker. here is a link.

6. Using a Fusion Key
So if you are like me, the key + clicker can be somewhat cumbersome.

luckily, the Ford Fusion key/clicker will work with our trucks. It is a combo unit that uses the same key & clicker frequencies.

I love the one I have for my Expy & Mustang.

To use one, follow the seperate programming instructions above for the key and clicker. You have to program each portion induvidually.
As for purchasing one...eBay!!! Notice a trend?

These keys are not quite as cheap as a normal PATS key however. But the going rate seems to be about $30 roughly. To me, highly worth it.
You go from this: Click the image to open in full size.

To this: Click the image to open in full size.



Hope this clears things up. If you have any questions, please ask.
