SOURCE: P102 Service Engine light warning came up.

MAP and O2 sensor are two separate items. MAP, reads manifold pressure, O2 reads exhaust content. O2 sensor often is a false reading not to be ignored but should not be immediately changed till other items are corrected. MAP sensor is often mounted on the firewall and can be identified as having an electrical connector and a vacuum hose attached to it. (ask a parts house to show you one and it will make finding it easier) Check for vacuum leaks in the hose and make sure the hose is well connected at both ends before changing the sensor. You may also want to clean the Mass Air Flow sensor located between the air duct hoses running from the air filter box to the throttle body. There are two small wires inside it that can be cleaned carefully with carb cleaner and a Q tip.If dirty, it can cause idle fluctuations or stalling.

SOURCE: 2001 Elantra stall, loss of power. Driving at

If everything you described is true, then there's a strong suspicion it's the ECU. Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Since you stated there were no trouble codes (DTC's), there's one last thing to try... ZERO out the ECU (do this by disconnecting the battery cables from the battery posts... connect the cables together for 30 seconds (this ZERO's out the ECU). Afterward, reconnect the cables to the battery. If the problem recurs (and there's no DTC's), the problem is in the ECU.

My truck wont start unless i prime the carborator first, then it wont stay running unless i rev it high just before i put it in gear, or im accellerating...


To start with, you have a throttle body instead of a carburetor.
On that throttle body is a component called an air control valve.
That valve is how the computer controls the idle speed. It should open and close the air flow into the intake manifold as needed.
Is the check engine light on when you are driving ? Have you checked the fuel pressure ?

91 integra ok driving at mid rpm range no hills or coasting check engine light comes on car runs rough and dies. restarts and runs ok but dies 5-10 minutes later


Car runs rough and dies.The issue indicates fuel pressure problem.But as you mentioned check engine light comes ON.The check engine light comes ON when the cars computer (the ECU) notices any kind of electrical problem in car. Once the problem gets confirmed the engine light will remain permanently ON till the problem gets solved. In this case I suggest you to get your car scanned at autozone service center. It's absolutely free. In case in car scanning, if any error code is retrieved then you can check which part is faulty as per the error code. At autozone they also deal in parts.So if any part checked out faulty then you can get that part replaced as per the code.-------------thanks.Helpmech.

I am having a problem with the car turning on and off constantly and when driving on the freeway when i hit the excel orator it looses power to the gas peddal and comes back over and over again. while on...


It sounds like you have a loose connection to you coil packs. The speed sensors actually could be causing the problem also. If they are shorting out and shorting out the ECU then the car would die. And if they are just momentarily shorting, then it would cause this exact problem. When the car dies going down the freeway does the speedometer jump or the transmission act up?

M.A.F. sensor went bad os so i thought. disconnected it, car ran fine no problems. about a month later it starts acting up. since then there's a new fuel pump, filter, plugs, cap an rotor. as well as a new...


If the M.A.F. sensor is disconnected it can't help the driveability of the vehicle in question. Do you get a service engine soon light with a code to this effect? I would change it and hook it up and see what happens.

Car sometimes dies at idle and does not set a code


this can be caused by and usually is a sludged up idle speed control valve, follow the instructions below to correct this
, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Getting a trouble code of 1b with no definition. also have 12.15 volts at maf


12.5 with the engine running? Should be battery voltage and you need the find the loss. The Maf should have ground as good as the battery ( common to fail by 2 volts ( needs fixed)) Power should be battery ( common to be 1/2 volt off) Singnal wire should be 5 volts unplugged with the key on and not running. Troble code not common as thats not the normal way their numbered what makes you think you have troble is the check engine light on ? Who checked these codes and what makes you think theirs a maf problem? What does the car run like ? Stall hesite, bog not start drink gas fail to pas? Sentras go like hell and stop on a dime if theirright and they stay that way till they blow or lose an injector ( injectoe failure is common over 150 thou.) Mileage ( unknown) Manuel or auto ( unknown) driving problem if any ( unknown)
