Could not see any oil around spark plugs and air intake pipe and servo pipes look ok.
Disconnected the MAF and went for a drive and driving at 50k in 4th was ok. Idling was a bit rough as suggested but pressing on the gas peddle fixed that.
However, when I reconnected the MAF the idling was ok, but travelling at 50K was still ok.
My wife drives the car most of the time and when asked she also said that she had noticed the it was travelling better at 50K. Is this a cure??
Have also noticed that when the car is taken out for the first time after not driving for a while, the revs go up and down if the gas peddle is not pressed down.
Question is, is the MAF faulty?
Finally I have also noticed that the engine temp sits around 50 deg while travelling about. if caught in a traffic jam for a while the tempature goes us to 90 deg. I am assuming that the thermostat is not in good order.
Would this have much of an affect on engine proformance.
