hi there, when air flow unplugged, ecu goes into limp home mode ,a back up if something dies whilst driving. it sounds as if your used mass air flow sensor is faulty , they are more fragile than they look, one knock and these early fine wire models are gone. i replaced many when i worked at a volvo dealership a few years ago. hope this helps, and good luck.

fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail is probably it or the egr valve is stuck open allowing burnt fuel to flood the intake, im leaning towards the fuel pressure regulator because the o2sensor is probably reading rich or if its reading lean then i would choose the egr valve . good luck

had same problem i would check the Idel Air Valve and also check all of your vaccum hose lines makeing sure there are no cracks or splits in rubber connectors if there is repair immediatelt because over time they start to dammage the internal parts fo the engine and if youve replace tps mass air etc. sounds like a vaccum hose problem

Hi Aaron. With all due respect you need to stop changing parts and find out what the check engine code is. You're just guessing at what's wrong.
Get the codes read, they will point you in the right direction. There are too many things to list here all the potential causes without those codes. It could be the idle air controller, fuel pressure, clogged catalytic converter, etc., it could be a lot of things!
Most auto parts stores will read the codes for free, or you could pick up a basic code reader for as little as $50 - $60. Once you have the codes, post back here or look them up at http://www.check-engine-light.com

It's should be a simple remove and replace. Just make sure the engine is off. Also do not touch any of the filament wires on the sensor, just the plastic housing. Also after you install it drive the car for a little while (city speeds, cruising speeds and inbetween). That way the computer will be able to readjust its setting since it is a new sensor.
