Well its eighter 1 of 2 things..the first being that the mass air

flow sensor was replaced but the computer was not rest.. Have a

mechanic rest it using his diagnostic tool... If not that then the

mass air flow is bad or its the throttle body or oxygen sensor he

should have changed..

Code P0102 shows up indicates Mass Air Flow Sensor. 1998 Olds Intrigue. It is like it has the hiccups and dies when slowing down and coming to a stop. Is replacing the Mass Air Flow Sensor likely going to...

Try this first. You can buy some MAF cleaner( not carb cleaner) and try to clean it off. Let it dry completely and don't probe the sensor with anything but spray from the cleaner. Change the air filter with a quality filter; the cheaper ones leave deposits on the sensor.

Mass Air Flow Sensor

If you clear the codes and the MAF code is generated again, AND the connector is OK to the MAF, then replace the MAF. Also, be sure your air filter is ok and the air horn (air flow tubing) from the air filter housing to the throttle body is securely connected and has no cracks in the rubber. If ok, replace the MAF sensor.

Emmisions control light is on in my car dunno what it is and how much it will cost to get fixed my car runs good in park but when i put it in drive it cughs splatters and stops running

Could be 3 things

1 EGR valve """The EGR valve helps your car more efficiently and completely burn fuel by recirculating a portion of your exhaust and running it through the combustion process again. This results in a cooler, more complete burn of the fuel which decreases you car's noxious emissions by prohibiting the formation of some harmful gases.""""

2 The lambda sensor needs replacing although, this does not normally cause the car to splutter.

3 The air mass sensor or air mass meter might be oplaying up, this is located on your air box you can clean them first to see if that fix's it. also check all your air pipes are not split or leaking air.

Air mass meters are also commonly referred to as air flow meters. They measure the mass of the air flowing into the engine. The air mass information is necessary to calculate and deliver the right amount of fuel to the engine, the sensor is the wired part of the system connected to the air mass meter.

Runs rough when cruising at 35-40 mph

try pulling off the air breather hose and look inside at the mass air flow sensor,it looks like a wire with a diode hooked to it incase you didnt know,see if there is any fuzz on it,sometimes the air filter will lose small pieces and the mass air flow sensor catches it.If that doesnt work then you may have a fuel problem,weak pressure,causing the mass air flow sensor to read too much air so it tricks the computer to adjust the issue.

Regulator problems

clean the air filter and oxygen sensor located in the duct leading to the air filter. buy a can of mass air flow sensor cleaner from autozone. if that doesnt work then completely replace the mass air flow sensor , if that still doesnt work try replacing the oxygen sensor. also try putting seafoam. in your gas tank from autozone itll clean out your injectors.and if your still having problems stalling and not restarting then it could be your timing belt and you might need a whole new engine, i had to put a whole new engine in mine becuase the timing was off.
