I just wanted to put this in here as a referance/guide incase it ever happens to any of you or someone you know. This also probably applies to all newer vehicles.

Story - While I was driving at cruising speed I felt a hesitation/jerk in car. Then the wrench light came on and the engine went into fail safe mode. Brought it to the dealership to find out that the DTC's were for the MAF and this lead to common a problem.

Problem - I had replaced the air filter with a CarQuest air filter. This air filter is slightly shorter in lenght than the factory filter and this allows snow/rain water to bypass the element and srew up the MAF.

DTC's - P061B, P2106, and U401

Recomendation - Only buy Motocraft airfilters for these vehicles

Comments - Obviously the air filter is located in an area where it is subject to road spray/debris. Another great acheivment by Ford. I should have stuck with GM products.

One final thought. Dumbest windshield wiper design EVER! design allows snow to build up underneath and then wipers lose contact with the window!
