1999 Ford Explorer where is the Mass Air Sensor located

Check engine light came on ant Auto Zone ran a check on it for me. The code was 107 map sensor but I am told that the 1999 doesn't have a map sensor and that it's probablly the mass air meter sensor. Is that located in the air intake somewhere?

The airflow meter is in the air filter box.Unstrap the clamp to get to the filter and on the half thats connect to the hose which runs to the throttle body is where you will find it.There are wires that run into that half.

Engine light on lack of power and sputters


If your check engine light is on and your vehicle is newer than a 1996 you can take it to knechts auto parts and have them check the codes with a code reader its most likely a sensor like the mass air flow(MAP) sensor or throttle possision sensor(TPS) or it could be a pluged exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR) but to know for sure you have to read the codes!

    - Intake air leaks
    - Dirty mass air flow sensor
    - Dirty mass air filter

  • 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.

Where is the map sensor located


I don't list a map sensor for that model.
I do list a MASS sensor which measures air flow between the air filter and the throttle body.

STALLS WHEN STARTED UNLESS I PRESS GAS


the iac code has nothing to do with the maf . the maf is your mass air flow sensor and it is in the air tube going to the throttle body. the iac is your idle air control valve that is in the throttle body next to the throttle position sensor

I have a 1995 ford taurus engine stalls when idling and smells of gas when accelerating it bucks. Changed fuel filter, could it be mass air flow sensor?


Start with smaller problems and check the fuel pressure regulator, the mass air flow sensor for these vehicles is pretty pricy. Is the check engine light on? If so, head to your nearest auto zone and have them check for trouble codes. If the check engine light isn't on, its not likely your mass air flow sensor

Check engine light


It might but what exactly are the codes. Before you change the Mass air flow sensor, try cleaning it first with a can of mass flow cleaner.
If your running a oil K&N filter, there could be some oil residue on the sensor. Start with that and change the filter or clean it if it's a K&N.
The O2 sensor's could be bad also, you really need the code's to be sure what sensor is giving you the faulty signal.
Good luck and hope this helps.

06' Ford Explorer engine light wont go off after repair


Yes, that sounds correct to be calibrated.and probably is what is causing your problem. Mass air flow sensors hardly ever go bad. They get dirty and set a code. Garages will try to sell you one when you can clean it with a throttle body cleaner. If you have your old one, clean it and put it back on, try it to see if it works better.

Check engine light will not go out


Mileage? O2 sensor? Scanner - 35.00 at Advance/Auto Zone - can be a big help accessing trouble codes.

1999 pontiac grand prix . will not run


If you unplug the MAF sensor it should run using the default mapping. I'm having the same problem, but I want to figure out why it won't run with the sensor connected.
