'01 V6 - Surging

Discussion in 'SN95 V6 Mustang Tech' started by Wrongdoer, Dec 12, 2013.

  1. When accelerating in first gear car surges and holds back, almost as if the limiter is engaging. This is an intermittent issue. But almost always if I get on it in second gear it surges and holds back at around 3500rpm and when I shift up it stops. If city driving this problem almost never shows, but for instance when I go to get on the freeway it will do this at the top of second gear almost every time. Lastly, I've noticed that when this happens it seems my speedometer goes a little nuts and shoots way up and resettles at zero until finally jumping up to the actual speed. I do have a CAI and I'm cleaning the MAF today just as precaution. Any idea as to what could be causing this? TPS maybe?

    All help appreciated.
