Have you replaced the mass airflow sensor?
Car never dies no smells nothing like that
Car will die when at a stop light. Need to put in neutral and give a little gas then slip into gear
The shop checked everything fuel pressure sensors ect?
I assume they did but not sure. I will ask them.
Is the car worth getting fixed? Like I said the car is 18 years old has 103,000 miles and I only drive it 500 miles a year. It is a second care
Are you still their?
You should fix it and sell it there is a simple thing for everything but not having the ability to test makes it difficult
Based on what you have stated this can be a few different things
Can you give me any ideas on where to look? Should I take it to the dealer?
I suspect it to be one of four the cam sensor is worn out the ignition module is worn out the timing is off. The last is the mass airflow sensor
Now if you have a shop with a scan tool they should be able to quickly diagnose the issue
How much do you think it would cost to get fixed?
I have seen a few of these issues ended up being a bad maf but also a worn cam sensor just enough to throw the timing off and on off and on
I would suspect 1 hour of labor from a certified tech to give you 100 accurate diagnosis so based on there rate now 1 of the above your looking at around 100-200 unless its maf you would want to get it from the internet they want to much at dealer
Now thats what I suspect now some shops will cut you a break on diagnosis if they do the repair
Cam sensor would be like 50 bucks and 15 mins to install
Thanks I will take the info to my guy and see what he says
