Question about 1997 Buick Skylark
While standing in front of the car the air intake tube from the air filter should be on the drivers side of the car.Follow it to where it attaches to the engine on the mass air flow sensor.Now look a bit below there and to your left with a flsh light and you shoud see a 2 wire plug plugged into a sensor that resembles a spark plug.The sensor may seem a little bit further in than you can reach with just your hand but you should be able to see it.If you get an angled pick or somthinig like it you should be able to unplug it.Get a 7/8 or 13/16 sensor socket with an extension and you should be able to remove the sensor and replace it with a new one.most new sensors come with thread sealer but if it dosen't put some thread sealer on it(NOT THREAD LOCKER)and install new sensor and plug it in with a pair of long needle nose pliers being carefull not to damage the plug in with the pliers.Note how far the old one is screwed in and install the new one the same unless it doesn't want to screw in any further.Becarfull to not strip the threads or break it.
