    New mass air flow sensor, temperature control sensor, throttle control valve sensor, and fuel pump. Cranks right back up runs less time each time cranks.

Check your vacuum lines if one is off then it will do that too.

03 Nissan Altima showing codes P0304,P0102,P0154,P0113 what are they and how do i repair the problems.

Hi Chris.

p0304 = Number 4 Cylinder Misfire Detected

Faulty spark plug 4
Clogged or faulty fuel injector 4
Faulty ignition coil 4
Fuel injector 4 harness is open or shorted
Fuel injector 4 circuit poor electrical connection
Ignition coil 4 harness is open or shorted
Ignition coil 4 circuit poor electrical connection
Insufficient cylinder 4 compression
Incorrect fuel pressure
Intake air leak

The P0304 code means that the cylinder 4 is misfiring or is randomly misfiring. Start by checking for intake leaks an if no leaks are found the next step is to replace the spark plugs on cylinder 4.

p0102 = Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input

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.

p0154 = O2 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected Sensor 1 Bank 2

Faulty Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 2
Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 2 harness is open or shorted
Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 2 circuit poor electrical connection
Inappropriate fuel pressure
Faulty fuel injectors
Intake air leaks may be faulty
Exhaust gas leaks

Replacing the Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 2 usually takes care of the problem.

p0113 = Intake Air Temperature Sensor Circuit High

Faulty Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor
Dirty air filter
Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor harness is open or shorted
Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor circuit poor electrical connection

The Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor is built into mass air flow sensor or in some vehicles mounted to the air filter duct housing. The sensor detects intake air temperature and transmits a signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM).The temperature sensing unit uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. Electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases in response to the temperature rise. The Intake Air Temperature signal is used as an input for various systems in the vehicle.

Hope this helps

2003 Nissan Altima 2.5L Service Engine Soon Light is on, Auto Zone says codes are for MAF and O2 Sensors. Car hard to start after driving a while but when starts appears to run smooth. Auto Zone thi

ok lets start with the codes they say your getting. P??? which 1's and how many. there are few o2 sensors, are they next to the Exhaust next to the converter? MASS AIR FLOW -MAF use this, for now i am guessing, until i see the correct codes your are getting. this could be the 1 you may have below, please read it........
  • 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
    - Excessive smoke
  • the code is generated when An excessively high voltage from the sensor is sent to Engine Control Module (ECM).

Missing when you first crank it. 92 Ford Ranger 2.3

do a compression test on all cylinders, check all 4 spark plugs.

Have you checked fuel pressure? Maybe the fuel pump or fuel filter is not providing enough pressure at the fuel rail for the injectors to work.
Also, clean the mass air flow sensor with a sensor- safe cleaner.
Good luck.

99 Durango battery won't hold charge. After jump

Hi there:
Check the Negative and Positive hook ups from the car. First try to tighten it. It may be loose. If rusted, you can replace them with better ones. The brake light and anti lock will stay on in the process of a charging or battery problem due to anti lock pump failure cause by the low battery voltage. this vehicle has a battery with a dead cell or you have charging system problems, I would take the battery to have it check some ware else, unless you have a very bad short pulling your battery voltage to ground very fast. and we can check that but you need a test light.

If you have access to a dc voltmeter, measure the battery voltage and it should read 13.0 to 16.8 VDC when running. If not your alternator or regulator needs to be replaced. It might have an inline fuse that needs to be replaced.

Now, about shutoff condition, you might want to change the fuel filter, it may have been clogged by sediment picked up from the tank when it was ran low on fuel.

Also, you could have a bad mass air flow sensor or the snorkel from the mass air flow sensor to the throttle body could be ripped. Both are very common and can cause you vehicle to loose power along with many other drive ability issues.

First look for cracks or rips or anywhere air can enter the engine that is not accounted for by the mass air flow sensor. Next comes the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor. This is a very important sensor input to the computer. It uses a hot wire sensing element to measure the amount of air entering the engine. The MAF sensor then outputs an analog voltage signal to the PCM proportional to the intake air mass. The PCM calculates the required fuel injector pulse width in order to provide the desired air/fuel ratio. If the sensor is bad than this air/fuel ratio will be off causing severe performance issues. In extreme cases, I have seen these two problems cause a no start condition. This input can also be used in determining transmission Electronic Pressure Control, shift and torque converter clutch scheduling.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I will appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

After my car stalling and then starting and not staying running longer than a minute we replaced the fule filter, fuel pump, and fuel pump strainer. Now it runs and drives, but it idles high around 1.5 to...

Remove the mass air flow,and clean it with intake cleaner spray,or mass air flow cleaner spray,if this does not help,reset the system again,by removing the negative battery cable for at least 20 seconds,then put it back on,if this does not help,replace the mass air flow sensor

Car quits running after warming up codes that come up are po135 02 sensor heather bank 1 sensor 1 and po101 mass air flow a circert ran of performance

the o2 heater circuit won`t cause a quit running problem.however a mass air flow problem will.i would check the voltages at the connector and compare to specs and also condition of the connection.these have a problem with a small amount of dirt covering the mass sensor wire.if you clean the wire from both sides dry it and re-install this may cure your problem with the code.if the voltages are not in spec then the mass air flow sensor is defective.the code for the o2 voltages needs to be checked and the connector for corrosion if the voltages are good and connector is good to the o2 then you have a bad o2 sensor
