Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?
Mass flow air sensor failure
\015 My boyfriend and I have the exact same car, his is cranking but not starting, a mechanic showed us that the MAF sensor is not working properly, it flaps when cranking, so we took mine off and put it on his knowing mine works and still the same behavior. Is there something underlying that will cause the MAF sensor to malfunction? I really don't want to spend 190 bucks on something that is not the actual problem...\015
Question one... What kinda vehicle do y'all have 2.) when the mechanic told ya it was a MAF sensor did he use a computer to tell you this by reading the codes? 3.) after Installing the other MAF sensor did you reset the vehicles computer. I have came across a few vehicles that even after the new part was installed the on board computer will still read in something "like" a safe mode and will not automatically reset itself. Hope this general info helps
