SOURCE: 02 sedona hard time starting and mass airflow sensor issues

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Hard starting could be caused by a number of faults such as weak battery corroded/loose battery terminals, fuel delivery issues and others which may include as you posted the MAF sensor. In my country however, most Kias have a peculiarity. They like to be well warmed up (even if it is hot here). Hard starting specially after short hops/trips is actually the ECU/ECM/Control Module or the car's computer getting mixed sensory inputs. The corrective action is to warm up the car fully before using. In some instances, it may also be required to reset the computer by removing the negative battery terminal for a few minutes. Pls bear in mind that some alarms are triggered this way and/or some car stereos would require a security code if the battery is removed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Buick lasabre 3800 and on my mass airflow sensor one wire is clean and one lookes burnt . Would that cause my car to act up?


Yes, a dirty or bad mass airflow sensor can cause a car to run badly. I had a 1999 Mazda Protege that had this problem. You can get a can of mass airflow sensor cleaner from an auto parts store. Be careful to hold the can a few inches away from the wires so as not to break anything. Mass Airflow Sensors are fragile. Let it dry before putting it back in the car. If your car has the check engine light on, they can check the code for your as well. You could go to Autozone, Advanced Auto Parts, Oreilly's, etc. CRC Mass Air Flow MAF Sensor Cleaner Instructional Video

    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.

    Eng starts to sputter when the engine gets around 2k rpm mass air flow disconnected


    You shouldn't run with the mass airflow sensor disconnected. That's probably the problem. Is it bad or shy is the mass airflow sensor disconnected?

    Fuel problem


    Check for problems with the mass airflow sensor, oxygen sensors, and coolant temperature sensor. If the mass air sensor is bad or malfunctioning, it can cause the computer to add too much or too little fuel and create a problem (ditto for the oxygen sensors). A coolant temp sensor that is going bad may tell the car's computer that the car is cold when it isn't, and if so, the fueling will be wrong.
