DO you know the code in the computer?
How does the engine idle?
Is it only on acceleration the problem is noticable?
Once I turn off the engine and wait a while. I start the engine again the reduced light goes off and within a few hours the engine light goes off. by the time a diagnostic test is done the code is gone.I'm not sur about the engine idle. The problem is noticed shortly after the engine starts and I proceed to drive. The power totally diminishes and the vehicle comes to a stop.
Well,the mas air flow sensor could definitely do this!
Just be sure that there are no air or vacuum leaks and that fuel pressure is up to par.
can the mass air flow sensor be tested to see if it is bad
What kind of scanner? By the way I am a female and really don't know a whole lot about cars. what should I ask my mechanic to do?
