Need more information. How many miles on vehicle? Ever changed plugs? Ever smell funny? Blocked exhaust/bad catalytic converter can cause these issues, Burned plug wires, fouled plugs, bad O2 sensors, bad coolant temp sensor, restricted intake path (dirty air filter), bad fuel filter (rare). If these tests are beyond your skill set, time for pro diagnostics I'm afraid. Might save $ all in all.

Crank sensor would be my next bet. 40 mph is safety mode to not damage the engine. i.e get home mode.

SOURCE: MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR REPLACEMENT & DIAGRAMS

Very easy for the Mass Air Flow Sensor....it is in the duct between the throttle body and the air filter box. Just unclamp the tube and remove the old and replace with the new.

Higher octane gas 93 with some good octane boost in the black can at autozone cost about 7 dollars or a bottle of 104 octane boost. Change the fuel filter. Probably only one coil pack is bad. The OBDII reader should tell you which one was a misfire.

SOURCE: p1320 trouble code plus

The P1320 code is essentially a coil primary voltage problem. This is traceable using a labscope or accurate DVOM and perhaps you can isolate one or two coils that still work but are close to failure...but there is a nissan service message recommending replacement of ALL coils with updated/improved models to prevent this type of failure. TCS/SLIP is traction control. Most likely you have a speed sensor issue. Be aware, some vehicles can falsely illuminate TCS because of low tire pressure in a single wheel.

Yes, replace the MAF, then check if the lean condition goes away. It should.

MAF's are sensitive to cleaning. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't.

WHY DOES MY WINDSTAR HESITATE AT STOPS AND RUNS ROUGH, I ALSO SMELL FUEL AND NO PICKUP ?


On all vehicles in the 1980's car makers started using computer controlled fuel injection systems and these systems have numerous sensors . These sensors give information to the computer for fuel control. Some of these sensors are the coolant temp. , mass airflow, oxygen sensors, if one of these sensor is reporting wrong information to the engine computer it could cause the symptoms you are experiencing. Along with vacuum leaks, plugged catalytic converters, miss firing spark plugs . Most usually a flashing check engine light will accompany a miss fire. These sensors degrade over time and miles, and it helps to have a diagnostic scan tool to check the sensors outputs to the engine computer. Fuel trims can also be viewed on a scan tool , these short term and long term fuel trims show how much fuel is added or subtracted, positive numbers = adding fuel negative numbers = taking fuel away . So what I'm trying to say here is that these are complex systems and sometimes you need to take them to someone who has the tools and knowledge to fix them !

Doubt its tranny more likely a mass airflow sensor or crank position sensor put vehicle on active scan tool while running watch the mass air sensor readout if it stops on a certain reading replace the sensor. Could also be a stuck egr pindle old engine codes would show this scan vehicle codes and get back to me

I have a 2008 pontiac torrent showing a po171 code as well as a po300 miss fire


p0300 is a random multiple misfire, could just need a tune up.
you should have the mass airflow sensor cleaned, the p0171 is showing incorrect fuel mixture, best to have the vehicle scanned at a shop so the exact issue can be pinpointed

Check engine light


You first need to run an OBD1 fault code test of the engine control module(ECM), if nothing shows up as far as fault codes goes then you may have a defective MAF (mass airflow) sensor or TPS (throttle position sensor). You can buy the OBD1 system scanner you need on eBay for around $100.00

Check engine light 1999 Pontiac 150,000 Mass air Flow code was posted on MT2500 Snapon scanner replaced the Censor now code for lean bank one shows ,replaced fuel filter checked Vacumn shows 20 what do...


replace the mass airflow sensor.. try used they normally will not need to be calibrated or programmed to the car. New ones cost more and are harder to get working. (and new ones cannot be returned.. used ones always work best for me..

Code po100 & p0300 come up. then I clean throttle body with cleaner, then the van stops missing & run good & light go's out.


P0100 is mass airflow circuit, p0300 is multiple cylinder misfire. Faulty maf sensor is most likely the cause of the misfires.

98 Jimmy has 5 codes (multiple misfire; egr; mass air flow; intake air temp; manifold pressure) Was dogging out on me and the other day it quit. Now it turns over but will not start. Checked and it is...


I would start with the Mass Airflow and EGR sensors first, because they can cause the misfire codes and the intake pressure and temp. Just because the air filter and hoses are clean and free flowing doesnt mean the computer can see that. If your Mass Airflow sensor died, as far as the computer is concerned, there is no air going into the engine.
