Air Flow Problem

I seem to have a air flow problem, I took my car to my mechanic and he has checked everything possible but can not find the problem, every time I stop and start to take off the car feels like it's forching itself to move and it keeps trying to cut off and after awhile some times it does cut off.was wondering maybe a dealer service may find the problem or if it's worth fixing?

SOURCE: 2004 Ford Crown Victoria no air flow through main air vents

Chances are the electronic/digital HVAC control unit is bad. This same problem happened to me and I had to replace the entire unit. The dealer wanted to charge $800 for just the part! After I freaked out on them, they found a used one for less than half. Sorry, but there's no easy fix here.

SOURCE: runs rough when cruising at 35-40 mph

try pulling off the air breather hose and look inside at the mass air flow sensor,it looks like a wire with a diode hooked to it incase you didnt know,see if there is any fuzz on it,sometimes the air filter will lose small pieces and the mass air flow sensor catches it.If that doesnt work then you may have a fuel problem,weak pressure,causing the mass air flow sensor to read too much air so it tricks the computer to adjust the issue.

So what you saying is it's hard to start cold right? Something in computer system not allowing excess fuel to injectors when cold. Probably sensor Get auto electrician to sort it out otherwise you end up replacing things that there is nothing wrong with They got the right gear

if you are worried that your cat is the problem and it may very well be, drop engine pipe down enough maybe half an inch from exh manifold see if that fixes problem .the best way is to use a scanner and monitor o-2 oxygen sensor it will show if it is at fault .regards agwbk

2002 grand am 2.2l overheating


double check the air again. purging the air from the 2.2 can be a chore. upon filling radiator I loosen the upper rad hose. then I remove the heater line and continue to fill until coolant is present. jack the front end up and start the vehicle. with the car raised in the air ..the air will travel much faster and resolve air lock issue....note: this is provided everything else was ok before the thermostat change, and you are certain no headgasket leak. hope this helps!

I took my car to have it checked at Autozone. The results were OEM Number to Cross: P0102. What is wrong with my car?


P0102 refers to the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. It may be dirty, faulty, or have a bad connection. Possible remedies are:

  • Verify that the Mass Air Flow Sensor wiring is connected properly and that there are no broken / frayed wires.
  • Inspect for any air leaks near the MAF sensor.
  • Take the MAF out and clean it using a spray cleaner such as brake cleaner or electrical contact cleaner. Be gentle with the sensor.
  • Check the voltage of the MAF sensor (refer to a repair manual for vehicle specific information)
  • Replace the MAF sensor.

most possibly it could be the air mass sensor ( air flow meter) first check air flow meter, if you get in to the workshop and fixed the diagnose cpu you can see the fault code, if not the air flow meter next have to check crank angle sensor, if you check the fault code you can see what's wrong, if the fault code like mixtcher information retch or Lin replace air flow meter,

When we use the heat or ac, it seems that the air flow has decreased severely, for example, when its a hot day we go to turn on the a/c in the car and the little bit of air coming out of the vents is cold,...


The air inlet for heat/ a/c is generally at the base of the windshield- long plastic grating at the edge of the hood or under the edge of the hood. These can become blocked with debris, leaves, maple propellers, etc. blocking the air inlet, vacuuum out and hose out. There is a drain hole but it may be blocked also so avoid flooding. If the fan seems to be running slow there is an electronic mechanism that governs the speed but I don't know where that is.

Cat is usually damaged from vehicle misfiring, Those codes you posted are a MAF, idle control, and 02 sensor codes. The MAF sensor could be reading incorectly causing the car to run rich or lean, and giving the 02 sensors bad readings, i would deffinetly look into the MASS Air Flow sensor, which is located on the intake tuping near the airbox

You can also try cleaning it with MAF sensor cleaner

Check for collapsing radiator hose on suction side of waterpump when motor revs raised above idle.
Check collant resevoir pressure cap is serviceable,
Check coolant system is properly filled - carry out any bleed off procedure specified to clear any air locks.
Check condition of radiator core:-
1) for blockage of air flow to (bugs/grass etc),
2) and internal blockage to coolant flow,

Replace the thermostat, if all above ok.
