  1. Hi Ford Fans, please help. I am driving a 1993 Ford Sapphire, 3.0i v6. It is fitted with a Lucas 5am air flow meter. The problem I have is the plug that fitted onto the meter broke, so I just cut it off and attached the wires directly to the connectors of the Air flow with clips, its making contact, but I have a feeling they are not correctly, the throttle pos you adjust for the idle speed is not responding as it did before. There are 5 connectors on the air flow meter. from the left side there are three then a gap and then two. There are many posts in various other forums with the wire color and connector it must connect too, but my wires are completely different. My wire colors are as follows: Brown with trace Black, Brown with trace Grey, Black and Brown with trace Red. So, in short, which wire connects to which pin. Any help would be much appriciated.
  2. Hi Bruce, thanks for the info! I have been doing some research and it would seem it is a 3.0 v6 6 cylinder engine with EFI. I wonder if there was ever a workshop manual that was ever produced for this. Ta
  3. Hi All, just inherited my Dad’s Ford Sapphire 3.0iRS V6. There were only a limited number of them made in South Africa, 250 of them as far as I know. I was wondering exactly what engine is in this car and where I could get a copy of a workshop manual. I have a lot of work to do on the body but intend on turning her into a beast. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
