By "ram intake" do you mean a cold air intake? Possibly a Vacuum leak. a large vac leak.. Check everything you did for misfits, loose clamps, broken hoses, hoses not installed properly, wires disconnected, if you find no problems replace your "ram air" with the stock components. If the problem goes away its your "ram intake" if the problem is still there you have one of the above listed problems. Best possibilty you did not reconnect the Mass Air sensor, or large vac leak

What would make my car use more gas and spider after I put a short ram coldAAir intake on a 2014 Corolla s

by altering the vehicles original specifications you have upset the sensor parameters for the MAF/VAF sensors and the o2 sensors. I would say that with the altered air flow the sensors are reading a need for more fuel and that has lowered the economy. Should wish to continue using the item then I suggest that you have it reset using a chassis dyno at a speed shop to recalibrate the CPU program

92 corolla with VAF code 31 acts like MAF sensor is bad; car bogs when accelerated, stalls cold. But there is no MAF-I confirmed this with the dealer. What is malfunctioning?

Your corolla doesn't use a MAF sensor, it uses a MAP sensor

The map sensor is located on the Intake Manifold right by the throttle body. That could easily be causing the issue you're stating.

99 civic ex misfiring

hi there, it could be several different things try these -check the idol air control valve first. try taking off with a\c going and with the a\c off and see if there a differance, if there is, i'd definatly have it checked or replaced. another idea is have the catalitic converter checked, if its clogged you would have bad acceleration,wont idol right, you can check yourself with a vaccum gauge, just connect it to the service port or where the pcv valve connects to the intake and crank up the car and watch the gauge, when you accelerate the vaccum will decrease and let off the accelerator, then watch the guage if it comes back to vaccum very quickly your catalitic converter is good, and if comes back slowly than you have a problem, its clogged
