I changed my spark plugs and cleaned my mass airflow sensor with maf cleaner. The truck didn't want to start but it finally did. When if did it had a sulfur smell but went away. The truck wouldn't...

When you cleaned your maf sensor did you disconnect your negative battery cable. If you cleaned the maf senor without disconnecting the battery cable there is a chance that you shorted out the sensor. Try unplugging the sensor and see if the truck runs any different. If it does not run any different with the maf sensor unplugged then you will know you found your problem. I hope this helps you out, and good luck

1988 300zx turbo-automatic has intermittent sputtering. sometimes when cold in town and more recently with highway driving. Drove like 70 miles at 75 and sputtering started. Had mechanic check it out...

The famous MAF (mass airflow sensor) yours is a vane movement type this is the famous intermittent failure, here is the good new just adjust it. you dont have to relace it, the way to do it is to open the blaack cover and tension down the spring, (just a tad) this is the one of the solution. 300 zx has a proor ground problem to the MAF the fix and the solution is to get the MAF gound sensor and make a addition ground bolt it to the intake and your done. On the MAF sensor it the 3rd wire MAF ground NOT THE MAF ECM NEGATIVE connection

MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR? 1991 Dodge Stealth RT

Yeah sound like the Mass Airflow sensor (MAF). This is one of those items you really shouldn't get at a junk yard.

The Sentra is known to blow mass airflow sensors. If you bought an aftermarket sensor and it says to reprogram the computer you are pretty much out of luck. If it were me I would read the instructions again as it probably means that you have to disconnect the battery for five minutes and let the computer learn the new mass airflow sensor.

The mass airflow sensor, or MAF sensor, measures the amount of air flowing into the engine through the air intake. The sensor on your Nissan Sentra is located in the air intake tubing that runs from the filter to the fuel injection system. If your Sentra is idling rough, has problems starting and frequently stalls during normal driving, it is likely that the MAF sensor is failing and needs to be replaced.

jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderate

Things You'll Need:
  • Socket wrench and socket set Screwdrivers (Philips and slotted) New MAF sensor
  1. Open the hood and locate the air box. It should be on the passenger side of the engine bay near the front of the vehicle. It will be a plastic, box-shaped object with a large plastic pipe running to the back of the engine.
  2. Examine the new MAF sensor. You'll be looking for this component in the air box.
  3. Remove the air box cover and pull the air filter out.
  4. Loosen the band clamps on the intake tubing with a screwdriver and pull the intake tubing off of the air box.
  5. Unplug the electrical connection to the MAF sensor and pull the MAF sensor out of the air tube assembly.
  6. Install the new mass airflow sensor and put the air box assembly back together. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Hope this help to solve your problem (remember comment and rated this).

99 Grand Prix idles funny, dies got code p0102,

this vehicle most likely has a mass air flow sensor it may have got accidently unplugged or the air tube from mass airflow to engine is not connected well or it could be that you have indeed a bad mass air flow sensor they do make a special cleaner that you may want to try before purchasing a mass air flow sensor or purchasing one from salvage yard the symptoms you describe would be created by a bad massair flowsensor

Car won't start after changing all important electrical parts

i'm guessing that it cranks, just won't start. if it won't crank i would have a different fix. check mass airflow and manifold absolute pressure sensors (maf and map). make sure they have good power and ground connections and determine that sensors are operating. hard to do with no start right? pretty much make sure they get 12 volts and then check for continuity between the ground connection and a known ground, like the neg post on battery. then one at a time unplug the sensor and try to start engine. if it starts with a sensor unplugged, probably a bad sensor.

91 jimmy starts cold, runs rough hot, dies when put in drive

Try to unplug the mass airflow sensor and start it. It will idle higher but should run fine. If it works then you need a MAF sensor. Be sure you have an OBDII code puller to clear the computer when done
