Have you checked the exhaust for a restriction, it may be a clogged catylictic convertor. Any muffler shop can assist you in checking for a restricted exhaust, they most likely will not charge for it.

SOURCE: misfiring when accelerating at highway speeds in fifth gear

It could be a couple of things.
1) Check to make sure the wires are in the correct firing order.
2) Check to make sure th plugs are still good, including the gap.
If these don't work than you should probably have a mechanic look at it in person.

Have you checked the power and ground supply to the MAF. They are right the barometric pressure sensor and the intake air temp sensor are built in to the MAF.

Engine will die when you plug it in while running, Plug it back on, start engine, if it runs the same when you unplug it while the engine is running, bad sensor, replace, if engine wants to die when you unplug it, sensor is good, hope this was very helpful.

    What fixes codes p1515

    Throttle Body Sensor or your accelerator pedal is the cause of code P1515. Your GMC or Chevy truck gas pedal is controlled by the vehicle's computer. I know what a idiotic feature.. But replace that & clean or replace your mass airflow sensor as well... Problems resolved!!!

    I have a 2001 kia sephia and when i press the gas pedal down the car spudders i changed the fuel filter and it still happens took it to auto zone said mass airflow sensor signal range/performance also said...

    The diagnostics said the MAF sensor and Throttle position sensor (TPS) are not performing well. The TPS has the most significant effect and you should fix this first, buy a used one on Ebay and change it, its very simple to do if you can reach it. The MAF sensor has a metal wire that sits in the airflow and it can be cleaned by a cotton-bud dipped in acetone, but this sensor affects efficiency, failure would not cause misfiring.

    Is the metal flap on Maf sensor on 92 Lexus es300 supposed to move with gas pedal if car is not running? Will a bad maf cause no apart or a no start condition?

    No. The metal flap in the mass aiflow sensor is not connected to the throttle control. The air moving through the mass airflow sensor moves the flap. The flap works a variable resistor inside the mass airflow sensor. The more (and faster) the air is that moves through the sensor, the farther the flap will move...that is how it measures how much air is entering the engine....that is what a mass airflow sensor does.

    A bad mass airflow sensor can cause all kinds of fuel control problems that can range anywhere from a hesitation on acceleration to a complete engine no-start condition.

    Engine Problem

    first thing that comes to mind would be the throttle positioning sensor, or the mass air flow intake sensor on the air intake hose assembly.Symptoms of a mass airflow intake sensor would be very poor acceleration or engine dying when gas pedal is mashed hard. Throttle positioning sensor can give you and irradical idle while sitting still. You might want to have a scan to diagnose the problem.

    Hi, i have a 1999 bmw 323i and the is not giving me the performance as usual, it wont pick up speed fast, if am going 50mh and i press the break and than press on the gas it wont respond fast at all even...

    A few classic possibilities here. First your throttle body sensor may be bad. Second your mass airflow sensor may be bad. Third your fuel regulator may be on the blitz. Also, if your oxygen sensor is going bad you may feel a slow response to your acceleration. My best bet is that your mass airflow sensor is going bad. Please have your car diagnosed at the nearest AutoZone for free.

    My 2005 Mazda 3, Engine Problems

    I honestly think that it is your mass airflow sensor that either went bad or needs cleaning. Auto Zone can run a computer test on your car and diagnose your problem, and if so, they carry a special can of Mass Airflow Cleaner put out by CVR that cost around 6 or 7 bucks. The mass airflow sensor determines how rich to make the gas. This would cause the car to hesitate or jump. Hope this helps. Please leave feedback!

    Changed Mass Air Flow sensor, CEL still displays problem

    it almost sounds like a fouled fuel injector. this is a tricky problem because it involve so many different operations. the maf is used to deliver fuel and the o2 sensor tells how much. there are 2 o2 sensors one before cat 1 after. mabey check these out visually. the computer should pick these sensors up if there bad. is this a supercharged engine? ill try to come up with some other ideas for you soon.
