I would check for a vacuum leak, also check the air filter and replace the fuel filter, if it hasn't been done.

I got the code from the OBD IT read a code of 23 and one of 36 now i need to find what it means

code 23 is MAT too low.(mass air temp.) code 36 is Mass Air Flow Sensor Error

The ECM receives a signal from the Mass Air Flow sensor depending on the amount of air entering the engine. The ECM uses information from this sensor to help calculate fuel delivery and spark timing.

Fault Code Description

  • 36 - Mass Air Flow sensor error


    • Engine stalling
    • Lack of power

      Idles rough lack of power when driving and vibrates, i changed fuel filter, spark plugs and wires, mass air flow sensor, oxygen sensor ,and tps sensor and had no luck. any suggestions?

      I imagine that the check engine light is on and if so what are the trouble codes? Sounds like a miss in at least one cylinder. If you provide me with the 8'th character in the vin # and codes if any, I'll try to be of more help.

      2003 Ford Ranger Edge V6. It is missing or hesitating on take off and in the early gears especially. Is it the fuel filter?

      no ,they very rarely need changing unless the metal canister has corroded ,most likely its a mass air flow sensor in the air intake pipe

      2004 jetta tdi, has engine miss & lack of power, has p0101 present, if unplugged has less power, but misses less, already cleaned extremely clogged egr valve, changed engine oil/filter, checked maf...

      Running rough?? If i took a guess I'd say there's a faulty injector. Does it smoke like hell ?? Does it also miss at idle?- If so get a line wrench and a rag handy. Start the car and while idling wrap the rag around the base of the fuel line connector on injector 1 and crack it just a bit until fuel comes out. It might spray, thus the rag. If the miss gets worse, that ain't the injector to blame. Continue with the other 3. If you crack a line and there is no or very little change in the miss then you found the guilty party.

      On a long shot it could also be a stuck valve.

      Did that get it?? It sounds like an issue other than MAF but.... get a multimeter and try probing the connecter to the MAF. When you find out what it is , please let me know. I'm curious
