Something is wrong.

Okay, I need help on this. I have a ´95 LX wagon. I know it´s supposed to be slow, but every few days, ´slow´ is an understatement. Like today for example.

The car starts well, but like today, I back out of the driveway, put it into drive, and step on the accelerator. It´s kind of like slow motion. The intake gurgles more than usual, and the car goes nowhere really really slowly. It doesn´t feel rough or anything, just like there´s no power.

This only happens every few days, or once a week, but it´s really getting annoying, because I know the car isn´t that slow.

If anyone has had this happen, or knows what the problem could be, please help.

How was the humidity outside when you pulled out?

You might have been sucking in too much moisture to get a clean burn????
MAF Contaminated??? Huh?

is that supposed to mean that is full of gunk or something.....

Well anyway...I did a full cleaning of my whole intake system this past Saturday...

-Cleaned and re-oiled my cone filter (and cover breather for the heck of it)
-Cleaned entire MAF assembly with "Carb cleaner"
-Cleaned temp sensor
-Cleaned interior of the intake pipe
-"Carb cleaned" my TB (a lot of black gunk in there).

And it now runs a lot better...a lot smoother

I hate o2 sensors ....they go all the time ...blah ....add another thing to replace on mine ....blah!

The cotton filter media need cleaning and oiling every so often...it´s how it works.

It´s the oil that catches the dust and debris.

If it wasn´t oiled....you might as well not even have the filter on there.....cause most of the dust will go right through it.
