SOURCE: repair air flow meter

jjj8000: Your car uses what is called a "Hot wire air mass sensor"
This cylindrical black plastic component which has screens at both ends and an electrical connector with roughly 6 pins, is not a serviceable component. It has a set of wires inside of it which after the engine is shut off, gets to a temp over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit to burn off residue collected on it during the time air has been passing over it. If I could repair this type of component in my shop, I would stand to make a lot of money! Unfortunately, it takes specialized testing equipment for the remanufacturing process. Not to mention the replacement components to put in to replace the ones needed to rebuild the cores.
I wish I could give you a better answer, but it's the only one I know. However, prior to condemning the air flow meter, make sure you have made the proper diagnosis. FALSE AIR problems are often diagnosed as air flow meters. Check and make sure the boots (hoses) which the attach the the air flow meter and go to the throttle body, have no tears or leaks. Make sure you have no split vacuum lines or hoses. Remember, the ECM determines the injector pulse width by the amount of air metered through that component. If any un-metered air that passes after the air flow meter, will create a situation of hesitation and stumbling, lean conditions and more. DO YOU HOMEWORK!"

SOURCE: I have hesitation when I step on the gas.

yes you are refering to the same component (located close to the air filter and housing ). and from what little information you
discribe it is posible its faulty due to air filter not replaced often.

1996 t bird 4.6l idles up and down


If it idles up and down real high, its the throttle body sensor. If it's a low up and down idle and runs rough it is mass air flow meter. If you unplug the mass airflow meter and it will just low idle (no up & down) then the mass air flow meter is bad.

Air flow meter sensor.


the air flow meter adjust the mixture ( fuel /Air) to the intake . as the engine RPM increase if there is a irregularity when the throtle is increased then yes that would solve the problem . make sure first there are no vacume leaks this will make the same effect.

2002 grand prix runs rough,dies service engine


sounds like you have a vacuum leak, check all the vacuum hoses and replace any broken or kinked ones, also check around the intake manifold gasket for leaks. any air leaks after the air flow meter creates 'un-metered' air which inturn will make the car run rough and stall, hope this helps

2001 XC70 Shutsdown after startup. When driving the car shutdown, was restarted a few times to get to a parking lot. After parking, car will start for 2-3 seconds and shutoff.


Try to unplug the mass air flow meter. The mass air flow meter is atached to the air filter housing on the left of the engine bay at the front edge (left side when sitting in the drivers seat). It will be a somewhat flat 5 or 6 pin connector that mounts to the air box on one side and goes to the black air intake tube that goes down to the back of the engine.

Do it with the key off of course. With the mass air flow meter unplugged start the car and see if it will idle. if it does the mass air flow meter is bad. If the car will still not run then there is a good chance the Eletronic Throttle Module (ETM) is failing. The ETM is under an extended waranty from Volvo for 10 years or 200,000 miles.

I would suggest taking it to a garage or directly to the dealer.

Of course there are numerous other things it could be, but the Mass Air Flow Meter and the ETM are the most likely.


hope this helps.
