    How do you know the air flow meter (MAF) is ok, they seldom set codes, clean the inside of the meter with MAF cleaner, it's made by CRC chemicals and availiable in most parts stores.

Since the problem obvasly was not solved, try replacing the fuel injectors, as most of the time this is what causes these symptoms.

I have a 2006 vw jetta 2.5, it codes for mass air flow sensor, temp control sensor, random misfire. I replaced the mass air flow sensor and temp control sensor and it still has a bad miss and is stalling...

Change the timing belt. My "educated" guess is that the belt has lost a couple teeth and jumped timing. I got the same codes for a Nissan frontier and when I took the belt off, it was missing several teeth in more than one spot.

Have you put the OBD scanner on it to find the problem. That would be a good place to start. the computer should have stored a code with the problem.

I have a subaru legacy 250t,hard to start ,as if to much fuel is comming thru.but once started car runs fine. 1999

This could be most likely related to a coolant temp sensor biased to the coldest reading possible in it's range, causing the the ECU to think it needs tons of fuel to fill the cold dense air. Or it could be EGR related. Either concern can be tested for. One is to unplug the coolant temp sensor located on the cylinder head coolant crossover pipe(orangey/brown triangle connector, kinda hard to get to) and just see if it starts better, if so, sensor can be removed with a 19mm opened end wrench. If not, move onto the EGR. Unplug the vacuum source to the EGR and plug it with a golf "T" and see if it starts better. If that doesn't work, let me know so I can look into it further. I hope this info helps.
