Question about 1992 Volvo 960
My 92 volvo 960 Mass air meter went bad; I tried several "used" units I found at the wrecker; and my car still has the same problems. So I got a remanufactured one for 380 bucks; put it in same problem.
Assuming that your problem is the MAF is reporting an error, there are a few things you might want to try. The MAF (Mass air flow sensor - also called a mass air meter) determines the amount of air flowing from the filter box through the intake hose to the breather of the vehicle. If your filter is plugged or dirty, or if there is excessive moisture or oil in the filter/filter box it can cause a MAF error. If there is a blockage you will also get an error. Another very likely problem: In many vehicles the wiring harnesses are NOT very well shielded and suspended. The more sensors and electroncis that are added, the more wiring, and the more likely some will eventually break, melt, short, etc.
Try tracing the wiring harness from the connector at the MAF back to where it joins other wires. Check for breaks, cracks in the coating, shorts, or possibly even a disconnected connector at some other point. Check to see if any bundles of wiring are stretched very tightly, for instance over wheel wells or around corners. You may have a simple solution right in front of you.
