Sometimes what appears to be a MAF sensor is really just a dirty one. It only takes a tiny piece of foreign material to make it go haywire. you can clean it using ELECTRONICS CLEANER, not carb spray and let it air dry. I have seen this a few times.

SOURCE: Where is the mass air flow sensor located on a jaguar x-type

hi from the uk the location of mass air flow sensor on x type jag is as follows==it is on the r/h/side of the air filter cover with jaguar embossed on top? this sensor is just prior to the intake hose that connects to the motorised throttle body from filter connections underneath it to unplug and meter is held by two screws ?if memory serves ? may i suggest you remove the large hose and use a little wd40 or similar to clean /lubricate the throttle butterfly in throttle body throat at this point so as to prevent future sticking upsetting of idling ? hope this helps ?

Remove it and clean with some carb cleaner and a Q tip. Be careful with it so you don't do any damage. 9 of 10 times this will get you running again! Since signal from there is variable low voltage, you cant really bypass it!

It's should be a simple remove and replace. Just make sure the engine is off. Also do not touch any of the filament wires on the sensor, just the plastic housing. Also after you install it drive the car for a little while (city speeds, cruising speeds and inbetween). That way the computer will be able to readjust its setting since it is a new sensor.

    Trouble codes (p0102)


    the code is for low voltage at the mass air flow sensor. it could be a bad connection of the wiring or a dirty mass air flow sensor or air leaking in the hoses that connect it to air box or the throttle body. or rarely a bad computer. most likely dirty or faulty mass air flow sensor. the maf can be cleaned with spray cleaner but be gentle with it.

    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.

    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
