What is the IACV? And where is the electrical connection to the air mass flow meter at, in a 1995 Nissan Maxima? Also, I need to know where all vacuum lines/hoses are, to be able to replace them all.

IACV= idle air control allows, and controls the amount of air into the intake when the car is at idle..and your MAFS, mass air flow sensor is connected to your air filter. It will be between the air filter and the engine in the breather tube.

Looks like you have changed about all the sensors with exception of the Mass Air Flow Sensor mounted on the air filter housing, and the Oxygen sensors. I would venture to say it is the MAFS, mass air flow sensor.

I have 2004 Honda crv try to find mass airflow sensor ?

The mass air flow sensor is just past the air filter. In other words if the air flow comes into the air box it flows through the filter then into the MAFS. It should be the first electrical plug past the air filter on the engine side of the filter.

Engine stalls going down the road, then starts right back up

Possibly - Mass Air Flow Sensor, poor oxygen mix
Possibly -Air Intake Sensor at Intake manifold, clean with carb cleaner.
Possibly - Crank Shaft Positioning Magnet, not aligning properly
Possibly - Oxygen senors, 1 before catalytic and 1 after it, poor exhaust eventing stemming from clogging catalytic converter
Possibly - Clogging in fuel delivery system starting from fuel pump and ending at intake manifold.

I would check these in that order.

P0101 code for check engine light.. possible solutions???

Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0101 has a generic description of "Mass or volume air flow circuit range/performance problem". This can be caused by several things including:
> Dirty air filter
> Air leak in air intake system
> Contaminated, deterriorated or damaged Mass Air Flow Sensor
> Poor electrical connections at the Engine Control Module, the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS)
> Faulty MAF or TPS

You should check your air filter and air intake system visually and correct any obvious defects/leaks first.

If a visual inspection does not turn up the cause, then you will need a scan tool capable of reading sensor data to verify the function of the MAF and TPS. You will also need proper electrical diagnostic equipment to verify the integrity of the circuits and continue with diagnosis.

You most likely need to replace said Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAFS). If you disconnect this sensor, the ECM uses other sensor data to "calculate" fuel delivery. Problem is, this method is not good for real time- meaning that when you hit the gas pedal, the ECM has to calculate the fuel needed and the engine doesn't rev up right, causing more of a driveability issue.

I've replaced quite a few of these sensors. Be sure to buy a new Nissan air filter when you buy the new MAFS. Even if you do the work, Nissan will want to see that should you have a parts warranty (12 months/ 12,000 miles) claim. No air filter replacement (with a Nissan part) = no warranty coverage.

This is not the most accurate test to use to check the operation of a MAFS, but it usually gives you an idea if you're in the right area- idle smooths when disconnected usually means you are in the right area.

Hope this is helpful!!

1998 Ford Expedition wont stay running

it is probably the MAFS, the MAFS tells the computer how much air is coming in and if it is bad the ECU will not be able to work properly, it is an integral part of the system,

one way to check the MAFS is to unplug it and try to start the vehicle, if the problem is better then replace the MAFS

Edit: also try to clean the MAFS with brake cleaner, sometimes dirt and oil will cause a MAFS to act up, it may be hard to get to the sensor wires but if you take the MAFS all the way off of the vehicle and just spray the unit down well you should be able to clean any larger debris off of the sensor wire
