MAF SENSOR CODE 96 maxima

1996 NISSAN MAXIMA GXE AUTOMATIC. THE CAR JUMPS AND THEN IT STALLS SOME TIMES. CODE



{P0100} baro or maf{mass air flow] vaf{vane air flow] sensor condition. probable cause [vacuum hose off]cracked or passage blocked. throttle body intake tube loose,off or cracked. [barometer] manifold absolute pressure defective. what does any of this mean

It means you probably have either a bad mass air flow sensor, bad wiring going to the sensor, or a bad air leak somewhere downstream of the sensor.

If the car uses a ‘manifold absolute pressure’ sensor instead of a MAF, then that is likely bad, has bad wiring, or has a vacuum line off of it or cracked.
