This will at least give you an insight to your MAF. If you do clean it be careful not to break the thin wires down in the tube. Good luck with your fix or replacement thereof.

    My chevy blazer 2000 ha a p0101 code changed the mass air flow sensor still does not want to accelerate


    Hi there:
    This code is set when the MAF (Mass Air Flow) meter is not sending the PCM the correct information. This can be due to a bad conection of the rubber intake hose between the MAF and the Throttle plate opening, a dirty air filter, a dirty mass air flow or a bad mass air flow.



    Most programmer have you tie into the iat sensor in the mass air flow. this can cause the the iat sensor oto short out.


    Hope helps.

    P0100 - Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit Malfunction

    Basically this means that there is a problem with the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor or circuit. Other MAF sensor circuit DTC trouble codes are P0101, P0102, P0103, and P0104.

    Symptoms:
    You will likely not notice any serious drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a general decrease in power or sluggishness.

    Causes: A code P0100 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
    * The MAF may be disconnected, or a wiring connection may be bad
    * The MAF sensor may be faulty

    Possible Solutions: The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back. Then start with the cheapest, easiest repair procedures:
    * Verify that the Mass Air Flow Sensor wiring is connected properly and that there are no broken / frayed wires.
    * Unplug and reconnect the MAF wiring harness
    * Check the voltage of the MAF sensor (refer to a repair manual for vehicle specific information)
    * Replace the MAF sensor

    Then, like a reference guide check this TSB DTC P0102 MAF and this article about Mass Air Flow sensor, what does it do and how it does it.
    Test, check it and keep us updated.

    I got the code from the OBD IT read a code of 23 and one of 36 now i need to find what it means


    code 23 is MAT too low.(mass air temp.) code 36 is Mass Air Flow Sensor Error

    The ECM receives a signal from the Mass Air Flow sensor depending on the amount of air entering the engine. The ECM uses information from this sensor to help calculate fuel delivery and spark timing.

    Fault Code Description

    • 36 - Mass Air Flow sensor error

      Symptoms

      • Engine stalling
      • Lack of power

      Common Problems Faulty Mass Air Flow sensor,Broken wire to Mass Air Flow sensor,Dirty sensing element in Mass Air Flow sensor

        Code 103


        P0103 - Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit High Input
        Basically this means that there is a problem with the Mass Air Flow High (MAF) sensor or circuit. A more technical description would be that the MAF circuit had higher than expected voltage (air flow). Other MAF sensor circuit DTC trouble codes are P0100, P0101, P0102, and P0104.

        Symptoms: You will likely not notice any serious drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a general decrease in power or sluggishness.

        Causes: A code P0103 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
        * The MAF may be disconnected, or a wiring connection may be bad
        * The MAF sensor may be damaged
        * The vehicle computer may be faulty (very rare)

        Possible Solutions: The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back. Then start with the cheapest, easiest repair procedures:
        * Verify that the Mass Air Flow Sensor wiring is connected properly and that there are no broken / frayed wires.
        * Inspect for any air leaks near the MAF sensor.
        * Take the MAF out and clean it using a spray cleaner such as brake cleaner or electrical contact cleaner. Be gentle with the sensor.
        * Check the voltage of the MAF sensor (refer to a repair manual for vehicle specific information)
        * Replace the MAF sensor.

        Where is mass air flow senser on a 1989 buick regal


        Hi

        Thanks for using FixYa. The BUICK Regal Mass Air Flow sensor is usually installed in the intake air duct between the air filter and the throttle body mounted on the intake manifold. Also check the throttle body for mass air flow sensors location.
        On mass air flow sensors with a sense wire, this wire can become contaminated with dust particles. These particles can be removed with automotive solvents that are safe for the use on mass air flow sensors. Before replacing the mass air flow sensor check for air leaks in the connecting air ducts and intake manifold. These leaks can cause similar symptoms as a malfunctioning mass air flow sensor.

        Bad or contaminated BUICK Regal Mass Air Flow sensor can possibly cause a wide range of various vehicle drivability problems such as stalling, especially when the engine is cold, misfiring, poor acceleration, etc. In addition, a problem with the Mass Air Flow sensor often causes the "check engine" or "service engine soon" light in the vehicle instrument panel to illuminate.

        Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

        Thanks
        Rylee
