The air mass sensor is located on the left hand side of the engine compartment. Follow the large hose which starts out as plastic down and to the front of the car. you will reach a rubber hose about 4" in diameter. It is attached to the back of the air mass sensor.
They stopped using air flow meters in 1979 (I beleive) Then they switched to what they call a "hot wire air mass sensor".
If you're getting check engine light take it to Autozone and they'll read the code. On mine the Mass Air Flow sensor was the culprit. Engine codes suggested MAF, manifold vacuum leak, coils, injectors clogged. Mass Air Flow sensor cleaner did nothing. Ultimately I replaced each coil ($75 per cyl) but still conked out like yours. MAF cost $300 at the store, but found one online $97 took a gamble and replaced in 5 minutes. It really made a difference.
I would have the charging system checked for over-voltage and AC ripple. There maybe a hidden wire harness problem if the charging system is okay. Wiggle test the wire harness while the engine is running to help locate the problem area. That is way to many parts replaced.
Its located on the air cleaner box (the box where your air filter is) Its had cylindrical shape and kinds square on the top its black in color and had a plug on it. There is rubber intake hose connected to it. Good luck and thanks for using Fix-ya
MAF stands for mass air flow sensor, this is used to tell the computer how much air is entering the engine, check the air filter,and clean the sensor with CRC mass air flow cleaner, with engine off. hope this helps,let me know Ray
if its the mass air flow you should have a check engine code 171 or and 174 to change that sensor it need to be calibrate with nissan computer better be prepare its not cheap over $600 part labour and calibration good luck pierre
clean the air filter and oxygen sensor located in the duct leading to the air filter. buy a can of mass air flow sensor cleaner from autozone. if that doesnt work then completely replace the mass air flow sensor , if that still doesnt work try replacing the oxygen sensor. also try putting seafoam. in your gas tank from autozone itll clean out your injectors.and if your still having problems stalling and not restarting then it could be your timing belt and you might need a whole new engine, i had to put a whole new engine in mine becuase the timing was off.
