Q: My 06 Tundra SR5 V8 starts and immediatly dies?

asked by on

I am attempting to perform a coolant flush. I have all the trottle housing off for easier access. I got some coolant on the serpentive belt and pulleys. However, I have rinse it and replaced the serpentine belt with the old one and problem persists. Could it be with the MAF sensor? The engine is not get ting air and need to reconnect the trottle housing back. I am stumped.

My car has 80030 miles.
