MAF sensor when it'* connected, Car immediately stalls at idle
I looked the best I could not to start a thread that might of been started I couldn't find anything the same as this ,but if i missed it I apologize, here is the situation, My 1993 Bonny SSEI 97,500 kms it increasing got rougher over time(months), and the car would start to stall out after surging idles rough cold and warm It would idle out idling in a drive thru,stops etc Out on the road this car would fly no problems
I unplugged the Mass Air Flow Sensor and the idle was pretty good compared to what it was before I did this and then i left the car over nite with MAF unplugged and when I turned it over in the am it was a better idle less rougher by 30 % So I reconnected the MAF sensor and it went back to the surging rough idle struggling to stay on, The next day I then changed the wires and plugs I unhooked the battery when I did this work and the MAF as well was unplugged So then once the plugs & wires were done I turned the car over and it ran very well not as smooth as I would like but 90% better and then when I plugged the MAF sensor back in and it killed the motor right away I can drive the car without it in no problems at all
Is a sure sign that it is a defective MAF sensor is my question ? Can cleaning it with a maf sensor cleaner get it took work ? If this is indeed the problem ? Why was the maf not killing the engine before I did the plugs wires and now after the wires etc the Maf sensor kills the motor right away once plugged in ? Is buying a used MAF ok ?
