MAF Sensor

I have a 2002 GMC Safari Van that occasionally will miss and/or idle rough. Check engine light comes on when pulling a long hill. A friend with a code reader pulled up MAF Sensor. Would a bad MAF cause these problems or does it sound like something else?

Yes. A faulty/dirty MAF sensor can cause the symtoms you describe. Obtain an aerosol can of MAF sensor cleaner and try cleaning the MAF sensor.


Thanks, I’ll do that tomorrow. Wouldn’t it be great if that cured it!
