If your sure that the MAS wires are the problem Then the only way to replace them is by tracing them back through the wiring harness and clipping them. Tie new wires to the pigtail where the old wires where cut and reconnecting the MAS. Be sure that the connections are good and do not change the resistance. I will also add that the wires are usually not the problem. The problems that the MAS cause can also be caused by other sensors or tune up issues. I would recommend looking further in to this before going through so much trouble if this may not be the problem. Good luck. This one is going to be a head scratchier.

Code P1121 for TP sensor - where is it located on engine of 2002 4.0 ford ranger

P1121 - Throttle Position (TP) Sensor Inconsistent with MAF Sensor The PCM monitors a vehicle operation rationality check by comparing sensed throttle position to mass air flow readings. If during key ON engine running self-test the comparison of the TP sensor and MAF sensor readings are not consistent with calibrated load values, the test fails and a diagnostic trouble code is stored in continuous memory.
  • Air leak between MAF sensor and throttle body
  • TP sensor not seated properly
  • Damaged TP sensor
  • Damaged MAF sensor
Drive vehicle and exercise throttle and TP sensor in all gears. A TP PID (TP V PID) less than 4.82 % (0.24 volt) with a LOAD PID greater than 55% or a TP V PID greater than 49.05% (2.44 volts) with a LOAD PID less than 30% indicates a hard fault.

Engine stalling at while in neutral

Lets take one thing at a time.
The squeal could be a slipping alternator belt. The alternator pulls hard on the belt when you first start the engine.
The EVAP sensor problem should not affect performance, just emissions.
The MAF code could be from a leak in the intake hose or air filter, or a wiring problem, instead of a faulty sensor. The sensor is telling the computer there is very little air flowing into the intake.
The miss-fire codes could be another ignition problem such as a coil or dist cap, or fuel problems such as injectors or low fuel pressure.
At this point you could take it back to the shop that replaced the MAF and have them recheck the car, or try a new shop.
If you pay a shop to diagnose a problem and their recommendation fails to fix the problem, they are on the hook to find the actual problem for free. If you tell them what to replace, its on your dime.

Find out why the check engine light is on. The first couple of things that pop into my mind is low fuel pressure or a bad or dirty MAF sensor. You will need a fuel pressure gauge to check fuel pressure. I can get you the spec if you need it. You can also try unplugging the MAF sensor and see if it will start/idle. If it does take it for w drive. If performance is improved check the MAF to see if it is dirty. It can be cleaned with MAF sensor cleaner available at your local auto parts store.

looks like not enough fuel pressure, check the fuel filter.

the pump is located at the rear seat driver side you have to remove the carpet to access the cover. if the fuel pressure checked "OK" suspect defective maf sensor (sometimes defective maf sensor do not show errors codes)another way to test is disconecting the maf sensor and start the car (computer goes to limp in mode) and works little better,or check by scanner idle= low grams per seconds and increase when accelerate.

You have also tried replacing the Mass air flow sensor. How does it run with it unplugged? You can also get all your symptoms and the MAF code from a plugged catalytic converter.

Check the computer. Puter may not be receiving the signal from the MAF. Check all grounds and B+ wires for continuity. Use shop Manual for furter detail testing and remember always wear a static guard band of some type when working on ECU aka computer.

My 2001 Lesabre indicates the gas cap is loose, it has been replaced but it continually flashes, how do I reset it.

You may need to check your MAP sensor. It's a small electronic connector that sits on top of your PCV housing cover. The MAF sensor may need checked as well. The MAF is an electronic sensor at your throttle housing. A diagnostic test will let you know which sensor is defective. These sensors tend to be rather expensive so have a test conducted forst.

Check engine light

have you checked the MAP sensor? located rear engine area, center upper firewall, see if vacuum line is attached or leaking, I believe your local autozone can test it to determine whether or not it is good, running rich is a good sign that you have a problem with it or vacuum supplied to it, let me know
