Without knowing a symptom, all i can say is
with a scan tool you can monitor the hz setting for the baro.
the maf produces baro info.
if the maf is bad, ussually dirty, the baro will read low
130-148 herz.
if its above 150 and your 1000 ft above sea level its probably ok.
if you have any vacuum leaks it will screw up this reading so make sure
you dont have any before using this method.
what is the symptom

    Trouble codes (p0102)


    the code is for low voltage at the mass air flow sensor. it could be a bad connection of the wiring or a dirty mass air flow sensor or air leaking in the hoses that connect it to air box or the throttle body. or rarely a bad computer. most likely dirty or faulty mass air flow sensor. the maf can be cleaned with spray cleaner but be gentle with it.

    My chevy blazer 2000 ha a p0101 code changed the mass air flow sensor still does not want to accelerate


    Hi there:
    This code is set when the MAF (Mass Air Flow) meter is not sending the PCM the correct information. This can be due to a bad conection of the rubber intake hose between the MAF and the Throttle plate opening, a dirty air filter, a dirty mass air flow or a bad mass air flow.



    Most programmer have you tie into the iat sensor in the mass air flow. this can cause the the iat sensor oto short out.


    Hope helps.

    2001 kia optima hesitates on acceleration gets better when warm, but still does it, has 2.4 engine


    3 possible problems your mass are flow meter/senso could be going bad but not bad enough to register a fault, the same for your idle air valve and also your throttle position sensor. all 3 of these are on your throttle body .
    with the engine running tap the side of the mass air flow with the back of a screw driver, if the engine sputers mass air flow needs replaced.you can try cleaning it with some mass air flow cleaner if you cant find that at your auto parts store get some electrical parts wash. your idle air valve needs to be cleaned or replaced there hard to get off. your throttle position sensor , you need to know the setting ,if the auto parts store cant give you aprint out of instuctions best to let a kia dealership do it and pay out the ****.

    Where is mass air flow senser on a 1989 buick regal


    Hi

    Thanks for using FixYa. The BUICK Regal Mass Air Flow sensor is usually installed in the intake air duct between the air filter and the throttle body mounted on the intake manifold. Also check the throttle body for mass air flow sensors location.
    On mass air flow sensors with a sense wire, this wire can become contaminated with dust particles. These particles can be removed with automotive solvents that are safe for the use on mass air flow sensors. Before replacing the mass air flow sensor check for air leaks in the connecting air ducts and intake manifold. These leaks can cause similar symptoms as a malfunctioning mass air flow sensor.

    Bad or contaminated BUICK Regal Mass Air Flow sensor can possibly cause a wide range of various vehicle drivability problems such as stalling, especially when the engine is cold, misfiring, poor acceleration, etc. In addition, a problem with the Mass Air Flow sensor often causes the "check engine" or "service engine soon" light in the vehicle instrument panel to illuminate.

    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

    Thanks
    Rylee
