Mine was doing the same prob.. but had high idle! (about 1200 rpm)..has a burnt valve... so get a compression gauge and check compression.and go from there. $30 bucks at advance and 30 mins time to check it!

I asked yesterday didn't get helpful feed back. 2000 impala LS. Knocking and smell of fumes. No drop in oil pressure. Seems sluggy.and now it dies at stop lights. Could it be knock sensor.


yes, this could be the cause. A faulty knock sensor could be advising engine control that there is excessive pre-ignition and to retard the spark advance.
Your best bet is to take it to a good mechanic with the proper equipment to read the diagnostic code(s). You may also have the check engine light illuminated.

I changed the knock sensor and pig tail on my 95 toyata 4runner awhile back. Ran better down the high way but had a really rough idle. So I changed the maf sensor now it won't idle at all.


You more than likely have a bad maf sensor ,take it back and exchange it for another one,or a different brand,maybe NAPA auto parts.

When starting my 95 camaro and the rpm drops to idol my car vibrates like it is not getting enough gas and acts like it will shut off


Is the RPM correct,should be 800RPM, You have a MAF (mass air flow) and a MAP sensor,also a IAC.(Idle air control) Depending on the engine size you have both a MAP and MAF, so basically you need to inspect for a broken vacuum line at the MAP sensor,you also need to look for false air,which is a broken vacuum hose affecting the idle.3_17_2012_3_31_56_am.jpg

Hard starting, engine wild, uneven engine idle


Hi and welcome to FIxYa!

If the engine is acting wild and experiencing a rough idle then the problem will be on the MAF sensor. If the MAF is faulty the engine acts unusual so I strongly suggest a MAF sensor replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

95 villager/quest. I have changed fuel filter ,plugs,distributor, cleaned maf sensor , also replaced hose on back side of egr. Still hesitates from idle to about 3300 rpm then starts running great. chugs...


the egr should be replaced or removed and cleaned with a good carburettor cleaner and checked for operation. the 34 refers to the knock sensor not having the right info to be sent to the ecu(in simple terms). you may have to replace the knock sensor but this is in the centre of the engine under the intake. takes a few hours. plan of attack: first have the vehicle scanned for p0 codes and with a scanner that reads "live data". what youre looking for is when youre accelerating the engine timing should be changing. if its not, change the knock sensor. then attack the egr which may be a little more difficult to fix. try the cleaning and check for operation. verfity all hoses are good and routing is correct. verify vacuum at the source. what causes an engine to start running great is it is dragging the affected cylinder and can longer be felt at those rpms. it wouldnt hurt to perform a compression check on this either. let know. cheers

Getting a code reading saying MAF or VAF circuit Low Imput. Need to know where to Start.


First thing to try - open your hood and look near your air filter. In between your air filter and your engine there will be a few electrical plugs. One will be your VAF or MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor). Check to make sure that the electrical plugs are on good. Don't be afraid to give them a little pull, and push them on tightly. If this does not fix it, check out the video below. It's for a Jeep, but your car may be a similar procedure. It tells you how to clean the sensor. I put some more technical information about how a MAF sensor works below, in case you are interested. Warning - technical information ahead! The mass air flow (MAF) sensor is an air flow meter that measures the amount of air entering the engine. The powertrain control module (PCM) uses the MAF sensor frequency signal in order to provide the correct fuel delivery for a wide range of engine speeds and loads. A small quantity of air entering the engine indicates a deceleration or idle. A large quantity of air entering the engine indicates an acceleration or high load condition. The MAF sensor has an ignition 1 voltage circuit, a ground circuit and a signal circuit. The PCM applies a voltage to the sensor on the signal circuit. The sensor uses the voltage in order to produce a frequency based on inlet air flow through the sensor bore. The frequency varies within a range of around 2,000 Hertz at idle to about 10,000 Hertz at maximum engine load. DTC P0103 sets if the PCM detects a frequency signal higher than the possible range of a properly operating MAF sensor. car dud

Ngine over fueling at all rpm, rough idle, heavy fuel consumption


if the car is stock i would replace your oxygen sensor. you may also need to clean out the MAF sensor.
