MAF sensor code
A month ago, my SES light came on and the code was 34. I replaced it with a junkyard MAF sensor (about 125,000 km on that part). Then, code 43 came up, and I changed the Throttle Position sensor with a brand new one.
I just came back today from a long trip (and incidentally hit 200,000 km on my car), and after getting home, I got code 34 again. After resetting the codes, the car starts up and stays on, but as soon as I blow some air into the TB with a hair dryer, the car shuts off immediately. The connector shows proper voltage as per Chilton manual.
Am I the only one who is having so much trouble with these sensors? Should I just replace the junkyard MAF sensor with a brand new one (it is more than double the price) - would that solve the problem? Unfortunately, I do not have a code reader, so I can't check gm/sec at idle and WOT, but is the hair dryer check a good check?
