Commonrail pressure sensor tro be replaced

    Thanyou. Is that also known as the intake air sensor affixed to the outside of the intake hose. Just unplug it from the electrical connection and pull it . If this is the sensor, it looks like a plastic spear with an electrical connection. Is this the Air intake sensor and if so could you please explain in more detail how this works. My truck runs fine most of the time but recently stalls and looses power more often. Also sometimes it wants to stall as the RPM drops but does not stall and then resumes normal RPM. So when it stalls I turn off the ignition switch and it restarts fine everytime but eventually the same problem occurs. Could it really be as simple as replacing this sensor. I have also heard a 2.5 diesel turbo commonrail without intercooler does not have a Mass Air flow sensor. Is this true? Any information you or anyone can provide is greatly appreciated. Thankyou

SOURCE: 93 TOYOTA HILUX ( 22RE ) STARTS THEN STALLS AFTER 1-2 MINUTES

Try cleaning the throttle body.Check the air-gap for the pick-up coil inside the distributor assembly(use a brass feeler gauge)
Check valve clearances if needed(possible tight intake valve adj.)
Check base timing(follow instr. via under hood label)
Hope this helps.

The mass air flow meter is fitted to the air intake pipe Its quite a simple task to change it on your own.Has for the catalytic converter all you will have to do is give the car a realy hard reving when going through the gears and drive it hard for a few miles.That will clear your cat for you.Dont listen to the shop they are out to rip you off.Good luck.Any problems you can contact me via pippall7@hotmail.co.uk.

Where is the air intake sensor


2014 post ,
op HAS NO BOOKS
FAILS TO SAY NOT IN USA, 2009 IS NOT HERE.
SO NO BOOKS HERE,

AIR sesnors, 1.5L something....
CANADA SWIFT 09 USES. GM ENGINE.
1.5 L E-TEC I4 (petrol) in canada swift+
OR THE M15A? (ROTW)uses real suzuki 1.5L

NO COUNTRY STATED, SO, no EFI data

and other counrties have there own 1.5
like in china.

so again
1:no country stated
2:no symptoms to backup Easter egg humts
3:does know there are 2 air sensors, one flow and one temperature and some are 2 in one.

and that all this is impossible lacking
COUNTRY.

OP ignore posters posting books NOT FOR YOUR CAR
and wasting cash on same.
the maf is on the intake pipe or throttle body
if not maf the car runs only MAP baro sensor
and in the plenum or has vacuum hose to it
if it has and IAT at all it can be on air leaner
main pipe air,or on plenum,each engine is different
that was a Generic answer, based on most engines made here. in USA.

TOYOTA engine stall and power losses


to find this out have the fault codes read as it may have nothing to do with the MAF sensor but could be a fuel pressure loss or a blocked filter.

Where mass air flow air sensor (toyota 2013 vego)


they use many engines in Toyota , up to 9, in some models.
so never work on any car , unless you know what engine you have.?

most cars 1988 to now had, MAF or a MAP
some newer cars have both, (it can switch on the fly depending or many factors)
why do you want to know,????? just curious. that is ok but
no engine NO JOY
must be a VIGO, and VEGO is spelled wrong?
the VIGO is
is this it
Data":
In August 2012, Toyota updated Toyota Hilux Vigo "Champ" in Thailand to 2013 model. This minor update upgraded emission standard to Euro-4, updated 4-speed automatic transmission to 5-speed transmission, upgraded performance of 3000 cc Vigo from 163HP to 171HP and upped torque from 343Nm to 360Nm; and Prerunner 4x2 was introduced in Auto. Other changes included more efficient fuel injection system and addition of center headrest on rear double cab seat. (end data)
a 3liter engine???????????
is it the KD engine:?? i sure dont know, im just reading the wiki.
they dont sell this car here. (usa)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_KD_engine#1KD-FTV

Is it a TURBO?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Toyota_1KD-FTV_Engine_01.JPG
Ive seen FAM sensors hidden in trottle bodies, the 2.0L DOHC engine is one example, so it can be very hard to find.
most cars the MAF is near the air cleaner, but not all cars.

today, there are 3 systems.
speed density EFI, MAP based
Air density EFI, MAF based (or old VAF "volumn')
and today (drum roll" BOTH.)
that is currect, if you want to learn more read this book
he covers this in spades.!@!!

read why they need both.

in a nut shell,
map works best at lower speeds and loads.
at high speed, the MAF wins, it measure true air mass. flow.
with a turbo even better, with a MAF for the same reason, and is oversized to do that.
folks that say the MAF restricts air flow are wrong, (sure with hacked cars) but does not, it will read accurate air flow, form off idle to any speed or load.
the MAP works best near idle.
one weakness with the MAP is it does not like changes to the engine.
anything that changes VE, (google it) will those hard set tables to be
wrong, not so with the MAF, it reads true air flow.
with 2 , you get better economy at all times, and more power under all condtions, even with custom exhaust system or cam changes. or
even CR, compression ratio.

i got his book on my nook for small $$
and jeff hartmans series. on same sub.
good luck to you.

Can ease onto gas at great great grandma pace and no issues, but put norma pressure on pedal car jumps and stalls engine. this is accident waiting to happen.


Yes. This sounds like a failed MAF (mass air flow sensor). This is the sensor attatched to the air filter box.

Where is the IAT (Intake Air Temperature) sensor located on a 2002 2500HD with a 6.6 Duramax Diesel?


The intake air temperature sensor on a 6.6L diesel is part of the mass air flow sensor, located just outside the air filter housing, in the intake air snorkle going to the engine. The other one is for the turbo system and is located directly at the top of the engine in the inlet pipe for the turbo. This on is the intake temperature heater / sensor, and will set a totally different code relating to the turbo. The one you want is incorporated with the MAF sensor. Usually code P0101 sets.

I have a 1995 Volvo 850 wich suddenly stalls mostly when comming to a stop bu can also stall while driving. I have had 3 mass air flow sensors instaled in 1.5 years. The first one seemed to do the trick...


I would check the vacumm lines and intake manifold. any vacuum leak will set a maf code. I done alot of maf codes and not replaced one yet. not saying they don't go bad, they do. also you can remove the maf and clean it, use brake clean, and also clean the throttle body, aspecially behind the plate, use a brush if you have to. this does work alot of times and makes some cars run as if it had a major tune up. Let me know

Hi i have a 04 reg mazda premacy 2.0 turbo diesel wich does'nt start it is showing 5 fault codes p0110 iat sensor circuit p0180 fuel temp circuit p0216 injection timing control circuit p1189 pump speed...


P0100 OBD-II Trouble Code

Technical Description

Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit Malfunction

Basically this means that there's a problem with the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or circuit.

You will likely not notice any serious driving problems, but there may be symptoms like a general decrease in power or sluggishness.
Causes

A code P0100 may mean one or more of the following:

* The MAF may be disconnected, or a wiring connection may be bad.
* The MAF sensor may be faulty.

Possible Solutions

Use an OBD II Reader (or go tou your local parts store and they will for free) and reset the code and see if it comes back.
Then start with the cheapest, easiest repair procedures:

* Check the Mass Air Flow Sensor wiring/harness is connected properly and that there are no broken / frayed wires.
* Unplug and reconnect the MAF wiring harness a few times to clear the contacts.
* Check the voltage of the MAF sensor (refer to a repair manual for vehicle specific information).
* Replace the MAF sensor.

i had the same problem a few months ago. check your fuel filter. mine was on the car for some time and after replaceing it, car runs great. hope this helps. i would also check your air cleaner. if to dirty will run rich and with a dirty fuel filter your car will stall.
