Is there a way to get the car to run without the mass air flow sensor? I don't have the $$ to fix it right now.

Remove it and clean with some carb cleaner and a Q tip. Be careful with it so you don't do any damage. 9 of 10 times this will get you running again! Since signal from there is variable low voltage, you cant really bypass it!

    What could cause jerking and stalling at the same place on my route every week or so on my 92 buick century 3.3


    How long since a tune up? Definitely add some fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank...maybe 2 bottles...I prefer Luca Oil injector cleaner...Walmart sells this the cheapest...also sludge in tank? Add a bottle of HEET to the gas tank to help dry up moisture,,,water...Change air filter and clean out (spray) throttle body...near the air filter inlet...also spray out mass air flow sensor...be sure to use MASS Air flow sensor spray only...does not damage the sensor...better mileage, smooth idle...hope this helps.

    P0100 NISSAN - Mass Air Flow Sensor Circuit Range/Performance Error

    Possible 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 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.

    P0101 Mass Air Flow, P0300 random misfire, Your problem is the Mass air flow, the P300 is the result of the mass air flow range, Mass air flow is a hot wire sensor they fail when contaiminated, as for the P300 that the engine detecting the condition when the mass airflow range is out, but here is another problem 1998 Buick used a back up its called a map sensor its on the top of intake plenum, make sure its seated and wire connection are there, Now you are going to fix the problem yourself if you ever taken out ,a airfilter and replaced it, then all you need to do is purchase a MAF cleaner mass airflow cleaner or brake cleaner or electrical cleaner clean the inside of your mass airflow you dont have to replace it the code is range performance the hot wire cant clean itself, so someone has to do it

    P0102 code on a 2000 Buick Park Avenue is this the code for a "mass air flow sensor"


    yes your right. it is a low circuit input code for a mass air flow sensor. you can try taking the mass air off and cleaning it good. sometimes it will help but normally they are just bad.

    Where is mass air flow senser on a 1989 buick regal


    Hi

    Thanks for using FixYa. The BUICK Regal Mass Air Flow sensor is usually installed in the intake air duct between the air filter and the throttle body mounted on the intake manifold. Also check the throttle body for mass air flow sensors location.
    On mass air flow sensors with a sense wire, this wire can become contaminated with dust particles. These particles can be removed with automotive solvents that are safe for the use on mass air flow sensors. Before replacing the mass air flow sensor check for air leaks in the connecting air ducts and intake manifold. These leaks can cause similar symptoms as a malfunctioning mass air flow sensor.

    Bad or contaminated BUICK Regal Mass Air Flow sensor can possibly cause a wide range of various vehicle drivability problems such as stalling, especially when the engine is cold, misfiring, poor acceleration, etc. In addition, a problem with the Mass Air Flow sensor often causes the "check engine" or "service engine soon" light in the vehicle instrument panel to illuminate.

    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

    Thanks
    Rylee
