There is no rattling sound under the car. What would a catalytic converter that was restricting the exhaust have to do with it not getting any gas? What exactly is an airflow meter and where is it located? Can it just be checked to see if it is bad even if the engine light still never comes on?
If the Mass Air Flow meter is bad, will this cause a check engine light to come on? How do you check to see if it is bad before replacing it? What is the normal cost of one and is it a major deal or a kind of quick fix?
