    My 1991 240DL volvo has a hard start, and while idling, goes up and down, then eventually stalls out. The air flow sensor/air mass meter? was unhooked, and the car idled smoothly. Is it true that the car...

    When you unplug the mass airflow sensor, the car goes into "limp home" mode in which it runs full rich. Generally speaking, if a car runs better with the mass airflow sensor unplugged than with it plugged in, the mass airflow sensor has failed.
    However, the drifting idle tends to make me want to look for vacuum leaks and check the rear temperature sensor on the driver side of the head. I suspect that running over-rich is compensating for the vacuum leak so the car keeps running.
    If you have a propane torch or a can of diesel starting ether, spray it around the intake manifold while the car is idling and see if the engine speeds up. If so, then you have found a vacuum leak.
    If it were mine, I would buy a new intake manifold gasket and replace it as a routine maintenance item. It is not expensive or difficult to replace except that if you are like me, you WILL drop at least one nut, and there are several great hiding places on that side of the engine where the nuts go to hide when you drop them. You will need a magnet to recover them. You don't need to pull the manifold clear off, you just have to pull it clear of the bolts so you can slip in a new gasket. You can leave the throttle cables and most of the other connections hooked up
    If you know how to use an ohm meter, you might consider getting a manual for this car and looking up the appropriate resistance/temperature values and checking that rear temperature sensor.
    While you are replacing that intake manifold gasket, check all the vacuum ports to make sure they are clear, and check all the vacuum hoses to make sure they are intact. Also check the tubes between the mass airflow sensor and the throttle body for cracks. While you have those air tubes off, clean the throttle body and the idle air control valve with some carb cleaner. Spray a little carb cleaner through the mass airflow sensor as well. Actually, there is a special spray for cleaning mass airflow sensors that is more gentle, but I have used carb cleaner on them many times with no apparent ill effects.
    If it turns out that the mass airflow sensor has failed, that will run some $$, but having a fresh intake manifold gasket and clean throttle body and no vacuum leaks will be worth your time and money and make the car run better when you are done.

    Engine light is on and the 02 taurus runs rough. the p104 code comes up. is this something I can fix?

    yes, very common problem. pull the connector off your mass airflow sensor and see if there is dirt or corrosion in there. The connection is intermittent. If you cannot get the code to clear by cleaning the connector pins and terminals, you may need to get a new sensor. They are easy to replace, but they aren't cheap. The sensor is mounted on the big air pipe next to the filter box. It is held onto the pipe with 2 torx screws. If you take it out, never touch the wire with your hand or anything else. You can clean the wire with spray electrical parts cleaner. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

    Making ticking nosies and does not start

    If it makes ticking noises and does not turn over the engine it usually means the battery is either low, defective or the battery terminals need cleaning.

    My 2005 Mazda 3, Engine Problems

    I honestly think that it is your mass airflow sensor that either went bad or needs cleaning. Auto Zone can run a computer test on your car and diagnose your problem, and if so, they carry a special can of Mass Airflow Cleaner put out by CVR that cost around 6 or 7 bucks. The mass airflow sensor determines how rich to make the gas. This would cause the car to hesitate or jump. Hope this helps. Please leave feedback!

    Car will not start loud clicking noise persists

    mware nailed the first thing to check but if the battery checks out OK, the next step would be to remove the battery terminals (always negative first) and clean the cable end and the battery's terminals. If this still doesn't help, you will have to trace the two cables to their other ends (one, the positive, will go to the starter itself) and thorougly clean those . Having a battery terminal tool (cheap, auto parts store) and a standard wire brush.
    If you've done all that, the starter solenoid (which may be integral to the starter) is the next suspect.
    The starter is the last step in the chain. If you need to replace it, I have had good luck with 'refurbished' starters and alternators, just make sure they are warranted.

    I would have the charging system checked for over-voltage and AC ripple. There maybe a hidden wire harness problem if the charging system is okay. Wiggle test the wire harness while the engine is running to help locate the problem area. That is way to many parts replaced.
