one after air cleaner and the other one on the intake manifold

I was wondering what happened to your problem..Did you use CRC MAF cleaner spray? So the oil is being drawn in by the PVC line I assume...Could or can you clean that line too??

I cleaned the MAF and the MAP sensor with MAF sensor cleaner
I ended up replacing the manifold sensor with an updated part number!

"AG9Z9F479B" $55.56

this sensor replaces AG9Z9F479A
I am sure there was a reason for the updated part number

Any updates to this issue? I have the same issue. I think I'll pull the map's and clean them. But when i did my bored throttle body install the TB and intake manifold were coated in oil in under 5k miles...can't imagine them now.

If you have not changed the auto trans fluid. change the fluid and your ruff idle issues will be gone. I had ruff idle at highway speeds, at stop lights, and when going up hills and changing the fluid solved the problems. Others with similar issues have also had success by changing the auto trans fluid.

Doing so has been on my list, but I have missed my warm weather window, -20 yesterday :/ so when it warms up I’ll be doing this. I had already ordered a case of ford motor craft atf :)
