Question about Oldsmobile Bravada
"as of yet I have not located any fuel rail"
You can see one at this link:
Yours may look slightly different but you should be able to recognize it.
Unless the plug boot is a very deep one, it will leap to any grounded metallic part and if the system is healthy, it will bridge the gap. If you in fact, don't see one then use your neighbor's suggestion; it's a common trick but not normally needed unless the spark is weak. It should give you (using an 'extender') give you over one-half inch of spark and even on my summer car, pushing 'antique' status, the spark is brilliant blue and will bridge well over a half-inch which (assuming 'standard air') equates to ~25,000 volts . BTW, modern ignition systems are quite capable of delivering a very painful shock.

There are a couple of air intake sensors on it the IAC witch is idle air controls then an intake air tempature sensor . But the sonsor that you are having the probmem with is called the MAF witch is the mass air flow sensor . Its bascly the first sensor in line and its not cheap about 200 hunderd dollars but you get a 60 dollar creidt for the old one as a recore so it ends up being like 140 dollars . its located in the air duct just after the air box where the air filter is located and held on with two hose clamps easy to remove and replace with just a screw driver .Its the first sensor to sent a signal to the computer for the engine controls so if its not working wright nothing else will and is the olny one of these sensors that i mentioned that would keep the vehicle from starting . There is now dought about it going on the information you gave me good luck
