SOURCE: mass air flow sensor replacement (variable valve timing)

The MAF is on the Air Intake above the air filter box and screwed into the plastic tube heading toward the throttle body.  It is the 2" by 2" plastic protrution from the air intake tube. There should be two philips screws holding this in.  Remove the two screws and back the entire MAF out.  There is a wire harness connected, unclip this to remove completely.
If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, go ahead and purchase another MAF for a few hundred clams, or you can spend about $10 and clean it.  It's made out of titanium and I doubt it will fail in 10 years.  But sometime it does happen.
Go to Lowes, or Home Depot and buy Electronic Cleaner in a spray can.  If you look inside the sensor, there is a heated wire, and behind that is another wire which picks up the oxidized air.
Stick the tube which is attached to the electronics cleaner spray can into the cavity where these wires are seen.  Continue to spray most of the can onto these wires to remove oxidation build up from the wires.  Let it evaporate for a few minutes then hit it again.
Allow the assembly to evaporate complete for about an hour.
In the mean time, take some throttle body cleaner and spray out the throttle body with the valve open.  Keep open to let it dry out quicker and clean up the black crud that come out.
Keep you air filter replaced.
Put everything back together and you should be good to go.

SOURCE: Where is the mass air flow sensor located on a jaguar x-type

hi from the uk the location of mass air flow sensor on x type jag is as follows==it is on the r/h/side of the air filter cover with jaguar embossed on top? this sensor is just prior to the intake hose that connects to the motorised throttle body from filter connections underneath it to unplug and meter is held by two screws ?if memory serves ? may i suggest you remove the large hose and use a little wd40 or similar to clean /lubricate the throttle butterfly in throttle body throat at this point so as to prevent future sticking upsetting of idling ? hope this helps ?

Very easy for the Mass Air Flow Sensor....it is in the duct between the throttle body and the air filter box. Just unclamp the tube and remove the old and replace with the new.

SOURCE: My car was diagnoised with a bad air flow sensor

the mass air flow sensor is located under the top plastic engine cover. to remove this un screw the oil filler tube by hand and remove the top cover. its just to the right of center engine. unplug this sensor. next it has two screws to take this off. It is not standard screws so look at it. remove them and replace sensor. After install go to autozone and have the warning code removed. This is done free. 2000 buick lesabre

I have a Buick lasabre 3800 and on my mass airflow sensor one wire is clean and one lookes burnt . Would that cause my car to act up?


Yes, a dirty or bad mass airflow sensor can cause a car to run badly. I had a 1999 Mazda Protege that had this problem. You can get a can of mass airflow sensor cleaner from an auto parts store. Be careful to hold the can a few inches away from the wires so as not to break anything. Mass Airflow Sensors are fragile. Let it dry before putting it back in the car. If your car has the check engine light on, they can check the code for your as well. You could go to Autozone, Advanced Auto Parts, Oreilly's, etc. CRC Mass Air Flow MAF Sensor Cleaner Instructional Video

    Code p0100


    A code P0100 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
    The MAF may be disconnected, or a wiring connection may be bad. The MAF sensor may be faulty
    Possible Solutions: Verify that the Mass Air Flow Sensor wiring is connected properly and that there are no broken / frayed wires. Unplug and reconnect the MAF wiring harness Check the voltage of the MAF sensor (refer to a repair manual for vehicle specific information) Replace the MAF sensor.

    Mass air flow sensor relay 1996 ford ranger 2.3 L


    The mass airflow SENSOR uses a small platinum wire with a current run through it to determine the volume of air flowing in.(More air makes the wire cooler,less air makes it hotter).After a while,deposits will build up on the wire,affecting the reading.(or,it may also get a high resistance open causing erratic operation).Every time I have seen a MAF sensor fail,unplugging it will force the PCM to substitute a value,which will make it driveable(it won't run very good,though).This is more effective on the cases where the wire is broken/breaking.If unplugging it somewhat cures your problem(you didn't say what the symptoms were),then try it.(make sure the new sensor goes in with THE ARROW FACING TOWARDS THE ENGINE(DIRECTION OF AIRFLOW!).(I have seen numerous clowns on car shows put it the other way and spend a ridiculous amount of time trying to diagnose it).

    P0101 Mass Air Flow, P0300 random misfire, Your problem is the Mass air flow, the P300 is the result of the mass air flow range, Mass air flow is a hot wire sensor they fail when contaiminated, as for the P300 that the engine detecting the condition when the mass airflow range is out, but here is another problem 1998 Buick used a back up its called a map sensor its on the top of intake plenum, make sure its seated and wire connection are there, Now you are going to fix the problem yourself if you ever taken out ,a airfilter and replaced it, then all you need to do is purchase a MAF cleaner mass airflow cleaner or brake cleaner or electrical cleaner clean the inside of your mass airflow you dont have to replace it the code is range performance the hot wire cant clean itself, so someone has to do it

    Does a 1996 Ford Taurus 3.0 have a hot wire type mass air flow sensor or a vane type? Would spraying carb cleaner into the MAF fix the problem of hard cold engine start? Once the engine warms up does the...


    TheMobilian, Yes, the Mass Air Flow is a Hot Wire type. There is a spray made for the mass called mas air flow cleaner. Regular cab cleaner is too harsh and can eat the coating inside mass air flow and it's delicate parts. Use throttle bore foam cleaner; it works like bathroom scrubbing bubbles and eats the gum and varnish. When engine warms up (closed Loop) both sensors work together giving input to ecm for output. Have someone with a live data reader read both sensors. (Let me know the readings?)


    Image Mass Air Flow(MAF)Sensor

    PURPOSE

    The Mas s Air flow (MAT) sensor measure s the amount of air flowing into the engine.

    This value is used by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) in calculating the required

    Fuel injector pulse within order to provide the desired air fuel ratio. This input can also

    be used in determining Electronic Pressure Control (EPC). Shift and torque converter

    clutch scheduling.

    CONSTRUCTION

    The MAE sensor is located directly in the airflow path between the air cleaner housing

    and the throttle body. Ail air entering the intake manifold must pass through the sensor.

    Located in the MAT sensor directly in the airstream are two platinum wires, a hot wire

    heated by electrical current and a cold reference wire. The MAF sensor uses the air flow

    across these wires to calculate its output.

    OPERATION

    The hot wire is maintained at 200CC (392CF) above ambient temperature as measured by

    a constant cold *e. The current required to maintain the temperature of the hot wire is

    proportional to the air mass flow. The MAE sensor then measures the amount of

    electrical current required to maintain this temperature difference and converts this

    value to an analog DC voltage. This output varies directly with the mass air flow rate.



    Pay attention to the Paragraph about the torq converter.
