SOURCE: I have a 2001 Mercury Sable the check engine light

First I recommend you get an auto repair/maintence manual for about 20.00. by Chilton or Haynes then check trouble codes for your sable, this manual is reasonable and will aid you in any further and future repairs. this manual is the type I use, I work on or vehicles-( shady tree mechanic)

SOURCE: Code number PO100- air flow sensor, volume airflow

Those sensors are actually connected to your air intake pipe just after your air filter. They're just plug and play sensors.

SOURCE: 2004 Audi A4 misfire

it is always a good idea to stay with o.e.m parts and yes there is updated parts in the newer coils. and yes the M.A.F will also cause misfire faults but will not make check engine light flash or make car shake and shudder. also check you wire harness going to your coils make sure your ground wires are not cracked. That could be the main culprate. good luck hope this helps

Had codepo101 , replaced MAF sensor, cleaned air filter. ran it fora couple miles , service engine light came back on . code po101 back. any ideas??

First make sure the air filter is new or at least clean. If you are using an aftermarket enhancement air filter (like K&N) make sure it isn't over-oiled (the oil will affect the sensors in the MAF) (mass air flow), and contaminate the reading of air volume going to the engine. If the ECM can't monitor or regulate the air flow it will set this code and ignore the input form the MAF. In some cases the MAF wiring was to blame, bad connections, or corrosion.

What is engine code P0171 for 2005 Toyota corolla?

What does that mean? Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 1 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 1 is the side of the engine that has cylinder #1.
Note: This DTC is very similar to P0174, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.
Symptoms You will more than likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a lack of power, detonation (spark knock), and/or a hesitation/surge on acceleration.
Causes A code P0171 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters may cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
  • There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor.

My 2001 toyota corolla stalls out when cold

It is registering engine too lean due to either too much air entering the engine via an intake leak or by an inaccurate reading from the MAF.

Often on these cars, particularly if they have used Toyota brand air filters, the MAF collects fuzz over time from the air filter.
As this 'fuzz' collects on the MAF element, it acts as an insulator and skews the airflow reading for the ecm; it sees less air than is actually going through, so when it checks your mixture on the way out of the engine it realizes that there is more air than it thought was going in.

Pull your MAF out of the air hose (two philips screws) and clean it with non-chlorinated brake cleaner or "MAF cleaner" available at your local parts store. Look in there with a flashlight, you will see a little coiled wire covered in little bits of fuzz before you start.

Do NOT touch the element, just use the cleaner to blast it clean. Let it air dry completely before reinstalling.

Clear the code and call it a day!

Check engine light on a 2001 Toyota Corolla

No need to replace the MAF. If it was bad, the check engine light would have come right back on as soon as you started the engine. The MAF not only measures the air going into the engine, but also measures the air temperature. Those 2 circuits are constantly sending info the the ECU. If either would fail, the ECU would light the check engine light. P0171 is a common code for incorrect readings (dirty) in the MAF. Cleaning it always helps, and cuts off the light. Your acceleration problem may be either a wrong Air-Fuel sensor (the one before the cat), or an "aftermarket" AF sensor. "Aftermarket" AF sensors have been shown to not work properly in Toyota vehicles. Hope this helps

Another problem on my 2001 Toyota Corolla - P0171 system too lean

If you had a bad MAF, the check engine light would have come on instantly. Replacing the MAF will NOT cure your issue. P-0171 is a common code, and cleaning it always eliminates the P-0171. Regarding the sensor, there are 2 different ones, and they do NOT interchange. If your body shop put in an "aftermarket" air-fuel sensor (the one closest to the engine), you can expect hesitation issues.

Poor idle, power loss off idle then takes off if you give it more throttle like a quarter more pedal, engine code says bank 2 is to lean

You need a new MAF (mass air flow sensor or air flow meter as its called). and you will also need a new air filter, since you most likely used aftermarket one and that's what killed that MAF sensor/meter. Aftermarket air filters dont sit right in the box and are not oil soaked, which helps to catch any debris and dirt coming into your engine. Replace you air filter with Nissan filter and install a new MAF/air flow meter. If your air box is dirty, clean that out too. MAF sensor will run you about $500 and the air filter about $17. Common problem on a Sentra if you are not using Nissan air filter.
