2002 Kia Sedona- Mass Air Flow Sensor problems

I'm about to change the mass air flow sensor for the 3rd time in a year! I have taken it into the garage and its the same thing, and they had no way of getting under the dash to search out if there is something causing them to die out. Is there something I can look for myself? Or any ideas of what is happening with this van!!
Please Help!

I had the same problem my car keep seting the code for the mass air flow sensor. i put on 3 of the. and it was not the mass air flow sensor. i had a bad set of plug wires that was making the car set a mass air flow sensor code. my car fine now after a year. make you sure you use kia plugs. if you need anymore help let me know.

    My 2002 kia sedona won't idle until warms up, dies when put into gear ...any ideas??


    Is the check engine light on? you could have a bad ignition fail sensor, TPS sensor, or bad o2 sensor. it could also be a bad mass air flow sensor or a vacuum leak. without a code to help pin point the problem I'd start by checking those things first. Maybe try unplugging the mass airflow sensor and start it up and see if anything changes.

    P0102 - Mass Air Flow Sensor Circuit Malfunction

    The mass air flownissan-maxima-maf-sensor.jpg or MAF sensor is placed in the intake air duct between the air filter and the engine intake manifold. The MAF sensor measures the amount of intake air flow. The MAF sensor converts the air flow measurement into a voltage or frequency signal, with the voltage or frequency changing proportionally to the amount of air flow. The air flow sensor signal is monitored by the engine computer (ECM). The engine computer (ECM) uses the mass air flow signal to know the engine load and to calculate the proper amount of fuel injected. If the signal from the mass air flow sensor is out of expected range, the ECM detects a fault and sets the code P0100. For example, the mass air flow sensor signal could be higher than expected when the engine is not running or lower than expected with the engine running. A car with the code P0100 may have some driveability issues, such as stalling, lack of power, surging, hesitation, etc. In some cars, the code P0100 can cause the fail-safe mode where the engine speed would be limited to 2,500 - 3,000 rpm.
    If there are other trouble codes present, they might need to be looked at first. Checking the freeze frame may help, as it may contain some important information. The freeze frame is a snapshot of the engine parameters at the moment when the fault was detected. The freeze-frame may show whether the vehicle was running or stopped, whether the air-fuel ratio was lean or rich, was the engine was cold or warmed up at the time of the malfunction. Read more about the freeze frame.


    Read more about mass air flow sensor.

    What could cause the code P0100:
    - faulty or contaminated mass air flow sensor
    - open or short in the mass air flow sensor electrical circuit
    - open or short in the sensor power or ground circuit

    - other electrical problem with the MAF sensor wiring, (corroded wires, bent terminals, bad ground connection, burned fuse, etc.
    - vacuum leaks
    - restricted air flow at or before the air filter
    - wrong air flow sensor installed
    - problem with ECM





    P0102 - Mass Air Flow Sensor Circuit Low

    The mass air flow or MAF sensor measures the amount of air entering the engine. The engine computer (ECM) uses the mass air flow signal to calculate the amount of fuel injected (read more how the MAF sensor works below). The code P0102 is set when the signal from the mass air flow sensor is lower than expected. Often a car may exhibit some driveability symptoms, such as lack of power, surging, hesitation on acceleration, hard starting, pinging (detonation), or rough idle when started cold. Often the codes P0171 or P0174 could also be stored along with the code P0102, as the incorrect air flow signal can cause the engine to run lean. The codes P0171 and P0174 indicate a lean condition. Checking the freeze frame might help in the diagnostic process. The freeze frame is stored in the ECM along with the trouble code. The freeze frame contains some recorded parameters (e.g. vehicle speed, engine temperature, fuel trim) at the moment when the fault was detected. The freeze frame can also be accessed with a scan tool.



    What could cause the code P0102
    - faulty or contaminated mass airflow sensor
    - debris blocking the air flow at the mass air flow sensor
    - unmetered air leaking past the MAF sensor (vacuum leaks)
    - PCV system vacuum leaks
    - restricted or collapsed intake air duct
    - dirty or restricted air filter
    - restricted air screen before the air filter
    - improper application of aftermarket components (e.g. cold intake, modified air filter, etc.)
    - wrong air flow sensor installed
    - electrical problem with the MAF sensor wiring, connector, power supply or ground.
    - problem with ECM
    - in some cases other issues with the fuel injection system like a clogged catalytic converter or a faulty manifold absolute pressure sensor (MAP) can also cause the code P0102.

    P0101


    Here is the definition of the code.

    P0101 GMC Description The Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor is placed in the stream of intake air. It measures the intake flow rate by measuring a part of the entire intake flow. It consists of a hot film that is supplied with electric current from the Engine Control Module (ECM).

    The temperature of the hot film is controlled by the ECM acertain amount. The heat generated by the hot film is reduced as the intake air flows around it. The more air, the greater the heat loss. Therefore, the ECM must supply more electric current to maintain the temperature of the hot film as air flow increases. The ECM detects the air flow by means of this current change.

    I got the code from the OBD IT read a code of 23 and one of 36 now i need to find what it means


    code 23 is MAT too low.(mass air temp.) code 36 is Mass Air Flow Sensor Error

    The ECM receives a signal from the Mass Air Flow sensor depending on the amount of air entering the engine. The ECM uses information from this sensor to help calculate fuel delivery and spark timing.

        1996 MERCURY GRAND MARQUIS WITH OCCASIONAL SLUGGISHNESS ON ACCELERATION AND SEEMS LIKE IT MAY BE USING MORE GAS THAN USUAL. HAS BEEN WELL TAKEN CARE OF, REG. OIL CHANGES, NEW FUEL FILTER 2 YRS AGO-DR


        I would use 10W40 in the 96 and 5W20 or 30 in the 2002.

        For the 96 with sluggishness, you need to gently clean the MAF sensor wires with carb cleaner and a toothbrush. It is in the air intake tube. After cleaning, disconnect the battery for 1/2 hour, then reconnect so the computer can relearn the clean sensor. Drive for 10 miles, it will run rough until it relearns.

        DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor The mass air flow sensor (MAF sensor) (12B579):
        • is mounted on the corner of the engine air cleaner (ACL) (9600).
        • uses a hot wire sensing element to measure the amount of air entering the engine; air passing over the hot wire causes it to cool.
        • sends out an analog voltage signal to the PCM (12A650) to determine the intake air mass. The PCM will then calculate the required fuel injector pulse width to provide the desired air/fuel ratio.
        The mass air flow sensor hot wire sensing element and housing are calibrated as a unit and must be serviced as a complete assembly.
