Mass Air Flow Sensor
Let’s face it, there’s a lot of sensors on your vehicle. The mass airflow or MAF sensor - measures the amount of air entering the engine. Because an engine needs a precise amount of air & fuel to perform properly. We recommend getting your mass airflow sensor cleaned every time you replace your air filter. But if your car is stalling, hesitating, or you are using more fuel than normal, chances are your mass airflow sensor needs to be replaced. Because if your mass airflow sensor is not working properly,the engine will not know the right amount of fuel to add causing problems including poor gas mileage and lack of power. Replacing the mass airflow sensor is an inexpensive maintenance of the engine system And if you continue to avoid issues with your MAF sensor, this can lead to bigger problems, including damage to your catalytic converter From a safety standpoint, there is a low safety risk, but your car might not start and you could end up stranded But from an environmental point of view, a bad MAF sensor will waste gas and increase your carbon footprint.
