96 3.8 t-bird running rough

Asked by May 16, 2018 at 10:32 PM about the 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey guys, first off thank you so much for everyone's input on all the posts on
this site its super helpful. so hears whats going on: i recently bought a 96 v6
T-Bird. It ran rough from the beginning. Biased on what iv read here i
cleaned the MAF sensor and the car ran great! for about 30 mins. in that
time i accelerated hard and the car started running rough again, but
differently the first time it bogged down when you revved it up. now it just
idles really rough. I cleaned the TBS and it made no improvement. any help
on where I should go from here as far as trouble shooting. I'm hoping to start
with the cheapest options first. New plugs and wires came with the car so I'm  
starting there in the morning. Any help would be amazing! thank you!
