Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I am from Zimbabwe and have an S40, 1998 model. Initially, the airflow sensor had problems such that the vehicle would loose power. With the old airflow sensor the nti skid button was working, if pressed on it would show on the dashboard or and disappear when pressed again. When I bought the new airflow sensor the light kept showing on the board. if the button is pressed the light does not go off. Hoever I have found out that in muddy places Iam able to pass thru. Can the airflow sensor be causing this light to be on.

SOURCE: wont complete scan to pass emission test

When you rest your codes there is a series of tests your ECU has to go through before you can pass emissions. this is done some people can reset the code and go before its sets the code again. on the 96 you can have 2 tests not complete for it to pass. basicly you have to drive the car a couple days for the tests to pass.

check the readiness tests wait until only 2 have not passed. then you should be drive and check.

Yes, replace the MAF, then check if the lean condition goes away. It should.

MAF's are sensitive to cleaning. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't.

SOURCE: What does the oxygen sensors look like in a 2003

There should be an O2 sensor before and after the catalytic converter on your vehicle, so it will have 2 sensors. You'll need a 7/8" open end wrench or an O2 sensor socket to replace them.

It'll look something like this:

Losing power on uphill run.what could be problem?

Your teansmission could be going out or your rear end (differential) or maybe your loosing compression in the cylinders which will make you loose power.. Also its going up hill its got to move the full weight of the car at an angle which pushes against the car so it has to work harder... And if your going to a really good elevation say 100+ feet invest in a turbo charger BC the air is thinner the higher you go

Back fire

Hi Thomas, The problem could be related to burned valves, a leakage on the intake manifold, a defective airflow sensor, or a number of other problems. First disconnect the airflow sensor and start the vehicle and determine if the backfire is still there. If it behaves then that unit is defective. I suggest you have a diagnostic scan carried out to determine what is causing the problem on your BMW. Regards John

Have the wires to the airflow sensor been cut and spliced back together? Because it sounds like someone put an airflow sensor from another vehicle on the car and rewired the harness so it would work. If that's the case, find where the wires have been cut and spliced and put them back the way they were The wires should be different colors, match the colors.

The mass airflow can get dirty and you will get trouble codes for everything under the hood except for the mass airflow. Try unplugging your mass airflow and driving the vehicle, if your problem goes away you need to clean the sensor. Buy some mass airflow cleaner though because other cleaners can damage the coating on the sensor.

Lack of power

You may either have a partially clogged Catalytic converter or you may have a MAF Sensor (mass airflow sensor) going bad. When it seems to loose power, does it want to backfire through the intake? If it does, most likely the MAF Sensor is going bad. If the car seems to drive just fine at first then starts loosing power gradually while you're driving, the Catalytic converter is most likely partially clogged.
