Q: Calibration?

asked by on

Car ran bad had dtc for maf sensor replaced sensor runs fine now but keeps resetting dtc after its cleared.

My car has 200000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

The intake system should be checked for leaks. A vacuum leak from items like a broken air intake boot, broken/disconnected vacuum lines, or a leaking intake manifold gasket can lean out the air/fuel mixture or disturb intake airflow enough to set a mass airflow code. Also, the issue can be electrical. If there is a break or loose wire in the mass airflow harness, or from the engine control unit to the mass airflow sensor, the fault code will remain after installing a new one. Have a certified technician look into the check engine light to find the exact cause. Locating an intake leak can be tricky.
