Mass Airflow Sensor: An Easy Fix for Big Problems from a Little Instrument

The mass airflow (MAF) sensor measures the volume of air entering the engine so the Engine Control Unit (ECU) can calculate how much gasoline the fuel injectors should deliver to each cylinder in order to create the proper fuel-air ratio.

The Most Common Causes of Auto Vacuum Leaks

Mass Airflow Sensor: A Little Instrument with Big Implications

If your “Check Engine” light is on, you could have a dirty or faulty mass airflow sensor (MAF). This key component of your fuel delivery system detects how much air is entering the engine and reports this data to the Engine Control Unit (ECU). This allows the ECU to determine how much gasoline the fuel injectors should deliver to each individual cylinder in order to create a fuel-air ratio that will promote optimal performance. If the MAF sensor isn't working properly, your engine could be starved or overflowing with fuel, causing a number of problems and resulting in poor engine performance.
