Hi, I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you today.
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

You can have a plugged fuel filter or blockage in the exhaust. Check your MAF sensor too for debris on it.

Thanks, Ron

Hi Ron, i am having difficulties a out finding the MAFsensor, is there any tip that you can advice me??
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
with tese three main reason u said? How could I detect which one it could be??
Expert:  rpmdiag replied 1 year ago.

Sorry for the delay. The MAF sensor is in the front part of the intake plumbing just after the air filter.

You need to test them like pull off the fuel filter. The exhaust needs to be separated from the manifold.

Thanks again, Ron
