Most of us know how the injectors get clogged. Its nothing else but the fuel that we use which causes clogging. Every time we turn off our car's engine, last drop of petrol dries on the nozzle of the injector and leaves behind deposits. These deposits become firm with the heat of the chamber. The more we drive our car, more deposits accumulate. Gradually it starts to restrict the flow of petrol from the tiny hole on the nozzle and the injector starts to lose its efficiency. This causes the engine to lean misfire and hesitate on different rpm, power and pickup is lost, the car becomes uneconomical on petrol, unburnt fuel can be noticed in the emission and worst of all the wear of engine becomes faster. Only 8% to 10 % clogging in the nozzle can cause all this



Proper cleaning can restore their like-new performance. There is no need to replace fuel injectors unless they are actually gone bad. Injectors are designed in such a way that they are not very convenient to clean. They are sealed units and cannot be opened for cleaning. Ultrasonic cleaning is MOST effective process for cleaning fuel injectors. It is cheap and comprehensive solution for the problem.

I have a 2006 vw jetta 2.5, it codes for mass air flow sensor, temp control sensor, random misfire. I replaced the mass air flow sensor and temp control sensor and it still has a bad miss and is stalling...


Change the timing belt. My "educated" guess is that the belt has lost a couple teeth and jumped timing. I got the same codes for a Nissan frontier and when I took the belt off, it was missing several teeth in more than one spot.

Car stalls periodically but is easily restarted.Stalled once doing 40mph.


Generally this problem is a defective Mass Air Flow Sensor. If you can get a known good Mass Air Flow Sensor to try that would be great. But the MOST likely cause is that sensor.

Car jerks on freeway and engine shuts off.


It sounds like your Mass Air Flow Sensor is faulty. These sensors will normal show fault when cruising at highway speeds causing the vehicle to almost stall or stall. Replace the Mass Air Flow Sensor with a known good one and test drive the vehicle. This will most likely repair your concern.

Replacing mass air flow sensor in 97 vw jetta


If the mass flow sensor was bad, the check engine light should of came on giving off an engine code. To remove the mass flow, disconnect battery neg cable, then pull of the wire harness and pull out mass. You will probably have to remove the air intake hose.
