The MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor is a very common problem with these along with the pickups. This isn't what you would call an inexpensive part. Definitely do some shopping before you buy one.

2008 Chevy Kodiak c4500 duramax desiel code reader (Innova 3100 Can OBD2) shows P0102, what does it mean


P0102 Chevrolet - Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input

Read more: http://engine-codes.com/p0102_chevrolet.html#ixzz38p5k1ZD8

Possible causes - Faulty mass air flow sensor
- Intake air leaks
- Dirty mass air flow sensor
- Dirty mass air filter
- Mass air flow sensor harness is open or shorted
- Mass air flow sensor circuit poor electrical connection

Before replacing the mass air flow sensor, try replacing the air filter and cleaning the air flow sensor with low compress air or mass air flow sensor cleaner. Reset code and drive vehicle. If the code comes back, it may be necessary to replaced the mass air flow sensor.

Anytime you make a change to any part of the emissions system, its best to disconnect the
battery for a few minutes. If you don't, the computer retains the fault code and it will usually keep
coming back. When all power is lost to the computer, it will do a complete scan when reconnected
and engine started. Try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes then reconnect and see what happens.

I put a cold air intake filter on the truck, and right after that the engine will not accelarate I changed the O2 sensor, the mass air flow sensor, and the one before the mass air flow sensor.


I,m thinking that its your catalitic converter, it may or may not be the fault of the cold air intake, due to the increase in air flow you may have freed up some lingering carbon deposits through driving potentionally with a heaver foot than normal. (we all love the sound of our intakes) Is there a check engine light or emmisions type of warning?

When driving my lincoln 1998 after about 10 miles or so, you can feel it hesitating about to stall.. there was a service engine light pointing to O2 sensor 1 bank II. could this be the cause? since the...


Hello. I can assist you. Generally when a scan is done, the technician will clear out all of the codes and hope that the problem self corrects. I am glad you passed the state emissions test. Now let's get to the bottom of the hesitation. Generally all lincoln and ford cars that hesitate like yours have a problem with the "mass airflow sensor". Most likely you will need to replace it.
The Air Flow Sensor or Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) is one of the components of an electronic fuel injection system and is found in many of modern vehicles. The Mass Air Flow sensor is usually installed inside the intake air duct between the air filter and the engine. The Mass Air Flow sensor is used to measure the amount of air entering the engine. This measurement is used by the engine computer or ECM to calculate proper amount of fuel injected into the cylinders in order to provide optimum combustion and low emissions.
Problems with Mass Air Flow sensors are common. Bad or contaminated Mass Air Flow sensor can possibly cause a wide range of various vehicle driveability problems such as stalling, especially when the engine is cold, misfiring, poor acceleration, etc.
In addition, a problem with the Mass Air Flow sensor often causes the "check engine" or "service engine soon" light in the vehicle instrument panel to illuminate.
The "check engine" or "service engine soon" light comes on when the engine computer detects some fault in one of the components of the emission control system.

CODE PO102 after Mass Air Flow Sensor replaced


Most faultcodes don't disappear automaticly, the have to be 'reset' manually after repairing. It sounds like the code didn't get erased after replacing the MAF. You could try to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes (disconnect and reconnect the negative (-) pole), which should erase the code.

Whenever the engine light still comes back on after that, there probably still is some (other) problem ...

My vw beetle stalls out. the mechanic first told


If it was the mass air flow sensor, you will have a check engine light. The small rubber hoses connected to/from the mass air flow connector might have come loose or have a crack, which will cause compression to be too low. Check there before replacing the maf sensor.

Check engine light


No the light is fine its the computer or there is a intake leak somewhere causing the mass air flow sensor to not work correctly, also a cracked hose may be giving a false reading. Get a mechanic to test it with a voltmeter and ohmmeter using a vacuum gauge to make sure it is the mass air flow sensor

Engine light on and it sputters when car inclines.


sound like the mass air flow sensor is dirty. take it off and clean with mass air flow cleaner and let it dry before putting it back in and try. it should be located in the air intake hose or the throttle body. also could be map sensor.
