Hey,

My 95 escort is idling like crap all of a sudden so I have been searching around here for solutions and have a few questions.

I don't have a check engine light on but how do you check for codes anyway?

I have a feeling my MAF is bad because the idle doesn't change whether its connected or not, is this a good way to check it?

Also, the car is hard to start but will not stall, it will just idle low and stumble.

The exhaust smells right, the oil looks good and I don't think there are vacuum leaks.

One more thing, if I unplug the AIC plug the engine will stall, so I think its good.

Should I go for a new MAF?

I found the problem, The egr Valve seems to be causing the bad idle. When I disconnected the vacuum line from the egr valve the idle went back to normal. Re attach and idle goes south. So is it as simple as replacing the egr valve then?
