Unhappy I need help!!! PLZ!!

I have a 01 v6 Mustang... I am have a problem... Well it doesn't do it all the time but i can be driving down the hwy or just a back road and it will start being hesatent and sputting like it is not getting gas and will not accelarat when i press the gas pedal. I will have to pull over and it acts like it wants to cut off but doesn't, I can turn the car off let it sit for a sec and will be fine till it acts up again. What do i do? I also have a ticking in the engine some where but will go away after it warms up or won't be as loud...

Re: I need help!!! PLZ!!

ever cleaned your MAF? That could be dirty, which could cause inaccurate air flow readings. Are you throwing any check engine lights?

Re: I need help!!! PLZ!!

there's a sensor determining how much air is coming into your engine (Mass Air Flow). If that gets dirty, it can vary the reading randomly. It's in your intake tube. You'll need residue free electrical contact cleaner to get it done right. Other's may have other suggestions. But, this couldn't hurt. You may consider seafoaming the car too. It works wonders for cleaning out engines and fuel lines.

Re: I need help!!! PLZ!!

get a can of electrical cleaner. Take off intake, spray sensor... reinstall intake. Probably disconnect battery for a couple minutes

Re: I need help!!! PLZ!!

it's the sensor that sticks into the middle of the intake tube.
