Posted by on


1 Answer

You can not bypass it,as the computer won't won't know how much air is entering the engine and won't run without it.

You could get a used one at the bone yard or Napa for $100 to $200 depending on application.

How do you know it is bad?? What type of test was done to suspect it?

What causes my 1998 ford escort to hesitate about moving forward hut then will pick up and go on?

You may have air bypassing the MAF sensor (mass airflow sensor). Pull the ribbed air intake hose to the engine and bend it around and check for cracks, they crack on the bottom, if none are found you most likely have an issue with the MAF sensor. You should also have the fault codes read with a OBD2 fault code reader or have the test done by a local auto parts store like Autozone, it is free.

How to shut off security system in a 2002 ford evplorer xlt

The security system the car arrived with is integrated into the vehicle electronics and cannot easily be bypassed, shut off or otherwise overridden.

If the security system is defective, having it repaired is often less trouble and cheaper than getting around it.

I suggest you chat to your local Ford dealer and then ask a local auto locksmith how much cheaper he can repair it for. The alternative would be to remove and send away the engine management ECU to be decoded. In the UK it can take a couple of weeks and cost about £200 for none-trade and it isn't a suitable thing to do for all cars.

What does it mean when your bank 1 n bank 2 are running lean

A lean bank 1 and 2 is indicating there is not enough fuel being injected to support proper combustion.
Leading causes can include but are not limited to......
1) low fuel pressure or plugged fuel filter.
2) vacuum leak causing lean condition.
3) air intake hose or crank case not sealed properly and bypassing the MAF sensor or the MAF sensor element is dirty.
4) wrong fuel or poor quality fuel used.
Hope this helps. If the Service Engine Soon light is illuminated, there will be fault codes associated the light. Get the vehicle scanned for free at your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto and report back.

Runs better with mass air flow sensor unplugged

The fuel injection control computer (PCM) subsitures the Throttle Position Signal and other info from a system called FAILURE MODE STRATEGY, your MAF has failed and the computer has gone into the failure mode, this is how I quickly determine if a MAF is bad in the shop, just unplug it and if it runs better or even normal I clean or replace it, first try cleaning the inside of the MAF with CRC MAF spray cleaner, avail from Kragen, Autozone and others, about $5 a can, if that doesn't fix it go to a web site called, they can bet local prices by 50% in many cases.
