Clean the MAF sensor heated wires inside MAF with carb cleaner gently with a toothbush first. Then disconnect battery for 1 hour and reconnect and drive for 10 miles so computer can relearn clean MAF sensor.

Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor The mass air flow sensor (MAF sensor) (12B579) :

  • is located between the engine air cleaner (ACL) (9600) and the throttle body (9E926) .
  • uses a hot wire sensing element to measure the amount of air entering the engine. Air passing over the hot wire causes it to cool.
  • sends an analog voltage signal to the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) to determine the intake air mass. The powertrain control module will then calculate the required fuel injector pulse width in order to provide the desired air/fuel ratio.
The mass air flow sensor hot wire sensing element and housing are calibrated as a unit and must be serviced as a complete assembly.

1998 buick riviera blinking check engine soon light


That most likely is exactly correct. When that light flashes means damage is being done! You will find the catalyst converter is the victim. Only when flashing is this occurring. Should shut down asap when this happens

I have a 1998 ford taurus the check engine light blinks and it doesnt want to pull up the hill.


When the CEL flashes you can damage the catalytic converters. Usually their are multiple misfires. The most likely cause is ignition, spark plugs, spark plug wires, ignition coils etc.

I have a 1998 ford taurus the service engine ligth blinks in and off and the engine is missing


you have at least one cylinder mifring. DO not drive it like this or you will ruin your catalytic converter which is hundreds of dollars. A steady light is ok, but a flashing light means don't drive very far.
Go to autozone & get a feee compuer scan. Get the DTC codes and it will tell you which cylinder(s) are misfiring. It could be a plug wire or a coil most likely.
