If the MAF sensor is faulty, you should get a check engine light and a trouble code for the sensor. Yes it could cause the symptom.
Low fuel pressure will cause that symptom too.

It's Mass air flow sensor, and it could. I had a 20 yr old car that ran very poorly extreemly rough, would only run with foot on the pedel. Turned out to be exactly the Mass Air flow sensor. But I had to take it to a specialist to find the problem.

What could cause jerking and stalling at the same place on my route every week or so on my 92 buick century 3.3


How long since a tune up? Definitely add some fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank...maybe 2 bottles...I prefer Luca Oil injector cleaner...Walmart sells this the cheapest...also sludge in tank? Add a bottle of HEET to the gas tank to help dry up moisture,,,water...Change air filter and clean out (spray) throttle body...near the air filter inlet...also spray out mass air flow sensor...be sure to use MASS Air flow sensor spray only...does not damage the sensor...better mileage, smooth idle...hope this helps.

I push i gas pedal and my car jerks but not all of the time


The Oxygen sensor just pick up a lean condition but it is not the cause of the car jerking,If you replace the 02 sensor you will still have the same problem,this is what you call a lean misfire. because it doesnt do it all the time it is intermittent,this can be caused by a shorting coil plug wire seeking ground or even a plug wire sometimes shorting out. Another cause could be a torn boot to the throttle body from the MAF(Mass air flow).

No power jucking but can drive throw it is it the air mass meter !!!!


Your description, I venture has a number of things misspelle by accident. "Jucking" Maybe "Jerking?" But you can drive "throw" as though" it is the air mass meter.
Keep in mind, I am not making fun of you, I have made my share of misspelled words and sentances which were a little confusing.
As for the mass air flow sensor, looking at technical service bulletins, there is one which pertains to the throttle position sensor, Air Idle Contril Valve and the Mass Air Flow Meter. They reference connections which need to be checked and insured that they are clean. These can cause a balk or hesitation and stumble. False air problems can also caise the same conditions. Look for vacuum leaks. The main hose which connects the air mass meter to the throttle body may have a crack or tear in it. As you apply throttle, the engine is going the jump and shift position a little. This can cause a small to massive air leak between the air mass sensor and the throttle body. Un metered air means poor performance.

Failed exceleration, engine jerks when driving, Added engine treatment with last trip to gas station and that didn't help, Now, the check engine light has come on.


Check pcv hose from the intake manifold for collapsing and leaking. Check while engine is running if it is leaking it will cause the light to come on. Also a dirty air flow sensor will cause a lack of power. Check ign coil for cracks along the sides also.

check the air flow sensor jack or the sensor itself it may be damaged or broken this causes the car to **** because this affects the fuel to gas mixture.

Car jerks on freeway and engine shuts off.


It sounds like your Mass Air Flow Sensor is faulty. These sensors will normal show fault when cruising at highway speeds causing the vehicle to almost stall or stall. Replace the Mass Air Flow Sensor with a known good one and test drive the vehicle. This will most likely repair your concern.

FIRING ORDER & CAR QUITS WHEN YOU PLUG IN MASSIVE AIR FLOW SENSOR


Hello,

You really need to start with basic troubleshooting. Is there spark to the spark plugs? Do you hear the fuel pump prime during initial Key On & during Engine Cranking?

Why did you change the MAF (mass airflow sensor)?
