SOURCE: a p0011 code and camshaft sensor replacement did not cure problem

well i know on the v6 that is true you replaced all of them. Not sure of 4 cyl but seems like it should be the same. Also I know on the v6 the variable valve timing set up sometimes did some weird failures triggering a cam sensor code. It could be anything from sludgy oil hanging up in the vvt hub or clogged passages or bad solenoids. but before going into all that(well besides maybe an oil change) I would go for the crank sensor.

SOURCE: mass air flow sensor

maf sensors identify the amount of air flow flowing in the intake. the sensor works with the throttle so it knows how much air is coming in to add the proper amount of fuel to mix with the air. Easy to pull and replace.

SOURCE: Bought new mass air flow sensor, need to know where it is located

Anywhere along the intake tube to the throttle body. Look for cables and harnesses around the intake.

SOURCE: 97 nissan pathfiner 3.3l idles too high

It has been my experience that this problem is usually caused by a dirty or bad Idle Air Control Valve (IACV). I would try removing the IACV and cleaning it thoroughly, as well as the air passages in the intake manifold.
You can check the valve itself. Check the resistance between the two terminals with an ohmmeter. The resistance should be approximately 10 ohms at 77°F. Also make sure the plunger moves in and out without sticking or binding and the spring is not broken.

OK now the bad news, the (IACV) is at the back of the engine and up against the fire wall. Lots of bad words will be used to replacing this and i think the dealer charges $550.00 in labour alone.
You can try running Sea Foam through the manifold, just follow the instructions and there will be lots of smoke, Do a search on You Tube for Sea Foam. You can try blasting it with throttle body cleaner though a vacuum tube and down the throttle body, may have to use three cans, just follow the instruction again.
Good luck and keep me posted.

SOURCE: 000 NISSAN Xterra -- after warming up, loses RPM by 500-1000..... have replaced ignition wires and distributor, checked mass air flow sensor and OK.....

I had a problem on my Nissan Xterra 2000. Symptons sound similar. In my case, it ran fine for a while and then suddenly the engine starts to stumble and lose output. At one point it did not even have enough HP to move. Irregular idling too. Thought it was water in my fuel. Bought water remover from the store and added to gas tank. Problem did not go away. Instead, "Service Engine Soon" light came on. Had to have it towed to the dealer as there was no way the engine could keep up with traffic. Dealer replaced the "Crank Position Sensor" today. Parts $33.00, Labor: $300 (about 3 hrs worth of work). Seems to work fine now but I will wait and see. Dealer also stated that Distributor bearing appears to be noisy and will need to be replaced sooner or later. I will wait for it to go before I fix that.

    Why does my 2002 Ford Windstar se idle at 3000 rpms and drop back down below 1000 rpms


    The mass air flow sensor, the throttle body and the idle air control motor need a good cleaning. Use a brush and brake clean everything except the Mass air flow sensor, just spray it down, both sides. After you clean it, it will take a few second to restart.

    My 1996 sentra is bucking and kicking while driving and dies when idling at lights. I have replaced air, fuel filters as well as wire and plugs. Check engine light does not come on. Fuel economy goes from...


    idle control valve will need cleaning, also the mass air flow as well ( mas air flow cleaner only recommended) and the air temp sensor. may need cleaning or replacing, it could also be the spark plugs or leads. it could also need the egr cleaning as well, and sometimes it can be from were you get your fuel. if the garage you get your fuel from when its rain and you fill up and then have problems there could be water in the fuel as some garages don't know that ground water is getting into the tanks under ground.

    2003 Grand Am Has P0102


    It is not an ECM/PCM problem.
    P0102 - Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input
    Possible causes- Faulty mass air flow sensor
    - Dirty mass air flow sensor
    - Dirty air filter
    - Mass air flow sensor harness is open or shorted
    - Mass air flow sensor electrical circuit poor connection
    - Intake air leaks Tech notes 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

    99 Eclipse 2.4 cid idles erratically and eventually stalls. Unplug the air flow meter and idle quality gets much better and does not stall. Does this mean I have a defective air flow meter? Engine codes...


    couple of possible problems

    first thing i would check is to make sure air intake hose between Mass air flow sensor and intake doesn't have any cracks holes make sure clamps are tight

    secondly check for vacuum leaks carb cleaner works great for this spray around intake gaskets throttle body fuel injectors vacuum lines when spraying u notice change in idle (if idle picks up or stubles) that where your problem is example you spray around intake gasket and idle picks up you have bad intake gasket

    third thing is to try and clean the mass air flow sensor they make special cleaner for this (u can use carb cleaner for this but it can leave residue on sensor and damage it so it not recomended)

    my best guess for you with all three o codes is you have a vacuum leak somewhere

    C220-manual transmission. erratic idling and sometimes idles up and down. Has been serviced and throttle body cleaned but still does this. Happens more often when the engine is warm.


    according to your information it's faulty mass air flow sensor, check mass air flow sensor first, when the Idle rough just disconnect the air flow sensor wiring socket if it's better than when it's connected it's faulty air flow sensor, mass air flow sensor have fitted between air cleaner housing and throttle body, you can see wiring connector been connect on it you have to turn it anticlockwise and remove it. when you fix it back do the reverse order, if it's faulty replace air flow sensor. is this information helped you?

    2001 kia optima hesitates on acceleration gets better when warm, but still does it, has 2.4 engine


    3 possible problems your mass are flow meter/senso could be going bad but not bad enough to register a fault, the same for your idle air valve and also your throttle position sensor. all 3 of these are on your throttle body .
    with the engine running tap the side of the mass air flow with the back of a screw driver, if the engine sputers mass air flow needs replaced.you can try cleaning it with some mass air flow cleaner if you cant find that at your auto parts store get some electrical parts wash. your idle air valve needs to be cleaned or replaced there hard to get off. your throttle position sensor , you need to know the setting ,if the auto parts store cant give you aprint out of instuctions best to let a kia dealership do it and pay out the ****.

    The car stalls out while driving sometimes,but it will start right back up with problem. Theres no engine light on, or anything else on.


    . Check the Mass Air Flow Sensor voltages. Verify good battery voltage to the Mass Air Flow Sensor on the White/Black wire. Verify good grounds for the Mass Air Flow Sensor on the two Black wires - look for 0.05 volts or less to be ok. Check the output voltage from the Mass Air Flow Sensor on the White wire - specification is less than 0.5 volts key on engine off and 1.0 - 1.3 volts at warm idle. The Green/Orange wire at the Mass Air Flow Sensor is not used. The Mass Air Flow Sensor can test good and still be defective.

    2. Make sure the timing belt is not off a tooth. Can check ignition timing to see if one bank is on. May need to get into compression on each bank but a timing belt off a tooth or two will idle poorly but can run better at higher RPM.
