Possibility: Fords are fairly simple to determine whether the mass air flow sensor is bad by simply unplugging it. It may idle rough, but overall will run better unplugged if the sensor is bad. I would start by re clamping the air leak first. Other possibilities would be a dirty fuel tank/filter, weak fuel pump if no check engine light was on. Any sensor problems you could bet on a check engine light being on..

Hi
this may the problem which you told before but this may only one of the cause.
2.due to the broken clamp the filter element might have moved from its position. so there may be a blockage in the line due to this the amount of air going for the combustin may be reduced which tmakes your car to stall. please relace the clamp and it wil be oki.

Try poking around in this forum. http://www.itocuk.co.uk/

Generally speaking for any vehicle. Check your air filter. It may be clogged. There is also a special spray for cleaning mass air flow sensors, like a carburetor cleaner spray. You loosen a hose clamp in front of the sensor and clean off the fine wire grill by spraying only. Don't touch. If you can see it from the air filter holder just blast down the tube. Let the gas evaporate a couple of minutes before you restart. The wires are delicate and need contact with the air to get a good reading.
You could also check the wires going into it. A blast of contact cleaner in a connector has cleared codes for me in the past, especially if leaking oil is blowing up. That is, if the filter and the sensor are clean.

  • P0103
    Mass Air Flow Sensor Circuit High Input
  • Possible causes
  • Faulty mass air flow sensor
    - Intake air leaks
    - Dirty mass air flow sensor
    - Dirty mass air filter
    - Mass air flow sensor harness is open or shorted
    - Mass air flow sensor circuit poor electrical connection
  • Before replacing the mass air flow sensor, try replacing the air filter and cleaning the air flow sensor with low compress air or mass air flow sensor cleaner. Reset code and drive vehicle. If the code comes back, it may be necessary to replaced the mass air flow sensor.
  • possible symptoms Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
    - Engine stall
    - Engine running rough
    - Excessive fuel consumption

Whre's the location of Mass Airflow Sensor in a 2005 Lincoln LS, V8?


Located in the air intake tube drivers side of vehicle. In Line with air filter housing top. Most of the time mass air flow sensors get debris inside them from an unsecured air filter housing. Sometimes they are tough to clamp housing back correctly

99 Eclipse 2.4 cid idles erratically and eventually stalls. Unplug the air flow meter and idle quality gets much better and does not stall. Does this mean I have a defective air flow meter? Engine codes...


couple of possible problems

first thing i would check is to make sure air intake hose between Mass air flow sensor and intake doesn't have any cracks holes make sure clamps are tight

secondly check for vacuum leaks carb cleaner works great for this spray around intake gaskets throttle body fuel injectors vacuum lines when spraying u notice change in idle (if idle picks up or stubles) that where your problem is example you spray around intake gasket and idle picks up you have bad intake gasket

third thing is to try and clean the mass air flow sensor they make special cleaner for this (u can use carb cleaner for this but it can leave residue on sensor and damage it so it not recomended)

my best guess for you with all three o codes is you have a vacuum leak somewhere
