P0100 - Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit Malfunction

Basically this means that there is a problem with the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or circuit. Other MAF sensor circuit DTC trouble codes are P0101, P0102, P0103, and P0104.

Symptoms:
You will likely not notice any serious drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a general decrease in power or sluggishness.

Causes: A code P0100 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* The MAF may be disconnected, or a wiring connection may be bad
* The MAF sensor may be faulty

Possible Solutions: The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back. Then start with the cheapest, easiest repair procedures:
* Verify that the Mass Air Flow Sensor wiring is connected properly and that there are no broken / frayed wires.
* Unplug and reconnect the MAF wiring harness
* Check the voltage of the MAF sensor (refer to a repair manual for vehicle specific information)
* Replace the MAF sensor

Then, like a reference guide check this TSB DTC P0102 MAF and this article about Mass Air Flow sensor, what does it do and how it does it.
Test, check it and keep us updated.

Yes it will,take the mass air flow sensor off and clean it with a non-chlronated brake cleaner this should cure the problem.

2002 Buick Regal 3.8 engine leaking coolant when cold, stops when hot. Is there a common problem with these or is it the water pump. Why does it stop when hot?


This sounds like there is a loose clamp somewhere. Quite often when the weather gets cold there gets to be a gap between the hoses and the metal. Just get a screwdriver and try all the clamps. It often only takes a 1/4 or 1/2 turn on them to stop the leak.
It stops leaking because as the engine warms up everything expands and tightens up, thus stopping the leak. Hope this helps.

I have a '95 buick regal gs 3.8v6, and it'll just stop running in the middle of driving. I can stop and start it right back up. The service engine light is on, but i was told that's cause of a loose plug...


yes only one fan is supposed to work, the other fan is for ur a/c. it shouldent be to hard to tighten down that spark plug if its loose. that wud cause some problems though if it was loose

1999 Regal GS -stalls, starting trouble, won't shift now


the batt is suspect...take it to autozone, or other place, they'll check it out free......the shifting out of park is a seperate issue, the pawl for the steering/shifter is not working properly....did you notice if the steering wheel would turn when the shifter is stuck?....probably not....when this happens try to turn the wheel back and forth-not hard but not gently- a little graphite dust sprayed in there would help.......hope this helps you out
