Hi there,
I had similar problem with my 2004 ford v-10.The odd time we went through heavy rain the air filter would get wet. Ford had a remedy to change the intake.to the filter. That cured that.
However one day problem happened again.....no power and rough running.
Would not start but when it did it would rev up and then sputter and die.
Managed to get home and checked air filter.....dry as a bone.....but there is a sensor that samples the air from air filter. Easy to get at and see when I took the top off the filter canister.Saw something on the "cross hair" turned out to be a dead mosquitoe.Removed that with a piece of paper and lo and behold the motorhome ran like new and smoothly. Had no problem and put 67,000 miles on that unit.
The darn flies. how it got in there I have no idea ....that's my weird experience.
My mechanic said the sensor was telling one side of the v 10 it needed more air or fuel as the fly blocked off 1/3 of the fine sensor wire.
If it's not that keep it in mind for the future.
Good luck......Dave

Keep in mind the mass air flow sensor fujii103 speaks of can be easily damaged by most types of cleaning solvents.

I had to go out and bring in several ford coaches with bad converters.
ford uses a ceramic converter and they will at times crack and stop up. To find out if this is the problem, take the bolts out of the exhaust pipe just in front of the converter. wedge the pipe open. Install a large bolt in the flange so that it can not go back together.Test drive. you can also do this to drive to repair station.

Final Update. Hopefully!

Okay. Went out today and pulled the air filter box apart. I disconnected the top breather hose and removed the top portion of the box. I reached inside to find the MAF sensor. I found more moisture still hanging out in the top of the breather box. I unplugged the MAF sensor connector pin and removed the MAF sensor. Voila! A thin coating of mold on the interior bolts, sensor housing and finally the sensor wires themselves. I thoroughly cleaned the water out, then sprayed sensor cleaner on the sensor. After everything was dry, I reinstalled the sensor, plugged it back in, re-inserted the rubber boot, reconnected the breather hose then clamped the breather box back together. Turned the ignition key and it fired up immediately! Smooth steady idle with no surging or skipping. Now for the road test. Took it out on the highway and had full power. Pulled right up to highway speeds and kept it up with no skipping or surging. Shifting was smooth with no hesitation even after hitting overdrive. I can't believe all that trouble came from that little, teeny piece of wire! I hope that's got it and I sincerely appreciate all the help from all my forum friends.
Mike

That little wire is what tells the computor how much air the engine is pumping. It is Very important!! If you find a good deal on a new one it might pay to extra one stowed away on board.

Thanks for posting the repair. Too many times the fix is not reported. It always helps for others to know what happened, in case it happens to them.

Do you have a water drain valve at the bottom? If not, you have a P trap that will hold water and suck it into the air intake system.

Very creative Boweavel, but it needs to be painted black.
