Looks like you have changed about all the sensors with exception of the Mass Air Flow Sensor mounted on the air filter housing, and the Oxygen sensors. I would venture to say it is the MAFS, mass air flow sensor.

I have 2004 Honda crv try to find mass airflow sensor ?

The mass air flow sensor is just past the air filter. In other words if the air flow comes into the air box it flows through the filter then into the MAFS. It should be the first electrical plug past the air filter on the engine side of the filter.

Check engine lght on and 2 codes p0103 and p0112

P0103 HYUNDAI - Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit High InputPossible causes- Dirty mass air flow sensor
- Dirty mass air filter
- Mass air flow sensor harness is open or shorted
- Mass air flow sensor electrical circuit poor connection
- Intake air leaks
- Faulty mass air flow sensor
Tech notesBefore 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.
P0112 HYUNDAI - Intake Air Temperature Sensor 1 Circuit Low InputPossible causes- Dirty air filter
- Intake air temperature (IAT) sensor harness is open or shorted
- Intake air temperature (IAT) sensor electrical circuit poor connection
- Faulty intake air temperature sensor
When is the code detected?An excessively low voltage from the sensor is sent to ECM.

P0101 code for check engine light.. possible solutions???

Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0101 has a generic description of "Mass or volume air flow circuit range/performance problem". This can be caused by several things including:
> Dirty air filter
> Air leak in air intake system
> Contaminated, deterriorated or damaged Mass Air Flow Sensor
> Poor electrical connections at the Engine Control Module, the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS)
> Faulty MAF or TPS

You should check your air filter and air intake system visually and correct any obvious defects/leaks first.

If a visual inspection does not turn up the cause, then you will need a scan tool capable of reading sensor data to verify the function of the MAF and TPS. You will also need proper electrical diagnostic equipment to verify the integrity of the circuits and continue with diagnosis.

Check engine light on

Those codes tell me fuel system is to lean on both sides. Yes those may cause low fuel but also fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, and others may cause these symptoms. First I'ld check the fuel pressure and see how well she holds. If fuel doesn't reach proper pressure it's your fuel pump. If it reaches proper pressure but doesn't keep it for long it's the pressure regulator. 02 sensors, should be another trouble code coming if if problem. egr valve, i have no idea how to check without catching up on some reading. MAFS, mass air flow sensor, will cause this. Double check to make sure the sensor is inserted correctly and no loose connections. If put in backwards it can cause bad readings. If there is a crack in the duct work before or after the MAFS or a loose fitting it can be causing a missreading and causing your problems.

1998 Ford Expedition wont stay running

it is probably the MAFS, the MAFS tells the computer how much air is coming in and if it is bad the ECU will not be able to work properly, it is an integral part of the system,

one way to check the MAFS is to unplug it and try to start the vehicle, if the problem is better then replace the MAFS

Edit: also try to clean the MAFS with brake cleaner, sometimes dirt and oil will cause a MAFS to act up, it may be hard to get to the sensor wires but if you take the MAFS all the way off of the vehicle and just spray the unit down well you should be able to clean any larger debris off of the sensor wire

I have a 1999 oldsmobile intrigue that is misting a lot. It idels rough, and runs rough. I can still take off it is a little slow, but I can still go pretty fast, but it still mist at the high speeds...

fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail is probably it or the egr valve is stuck open allowing burnt fuel to flood the intake, im leaning towards the fuel pressure regulator because the o2sensor is probably reading rich or if its reading lean then i would choose the egr valve . good luck
