Keeping your car breathing properly

MAF Sensor and Engine Air Filter
Today’s Kocur Krew Automotive post focuses on the importance of protecting your mass air flow sensor or MAF. Air and fuel are mixed together to be burned in your engine. The amount is controlled by how hard you press on the accelerator or by external factors like climbing hills or hauling loads. Based on how much air you need – and how much is available – your engine management computer tells your fuel injection system how much fuel to send to your engine. But what if the computer is getting the wrong details about how much air is coming into your engine? Well, it would send the wrong amount of fuel and your engine performance would suffer.
The Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor measures the volume, temperature, and density of the air flowing into your engine. With that critical information, the computer calculates how much oxygen is available to burn and adjusts the amount of fuel it sends. A dirty or damaged MAF sensor can give the wrong readings, hurt your fuel economy, damage the catalytic converter, reduce engine performance, trigger the Check Engine Light, and, worst case, stop your engine.
Remember that you can drive your car if the Check Engine Light is on – unless it’s flashing. If your CEL indicates a MAF problem, Kocur Krew Automotive recommends that you take action before you damage your catalytic converter.
How does an MAF sensor get damaged? Well, let’s look at this process again. As air comes into your engine, it first passes through the engine air filter. Dust, road grime, pollen, and other detrimental contaminants are, hopefully, trapped in the filter. If the engine air filter becomes clogged, some of the pollutants can pass through and hit the MAF sensor. Thus, a clean engine air filter protects your MAF sensor. Reason number 47 to replace your engine air filter as recommended.
Now if your MAF sensor is contaminated, you may be able to clean it with an air induction cleaning service at Kocur Krew Automotive in Gladwin. This service also cleans your throttle body and other fuel system components. In those circumstances where the MAF sensor is not only contaminated but actually damaged, it will need to be replaced. (And it costs a whole lot more than an engine air filter.)
Your Kocur Krew Automotive service advisor can quickly inspect your engine air filter to see if you need a new one. A caution: low-line air filters may actually contribute to MAF sensor failure as filter material can come loose and contaminate the sensitive sensor elements – filter material is just as harmful as outside gunk.
When your friendly Kocur Krew Automotive technician recommends you replace your engine air filter, look at how much is riding on that inexpensive but critical part.

The most important part of your car is its engine. If your engine is in proper working condition then there is little chance to any mishap occur on the road due to your vehicle. So keeping your car's engine in proper running condition basically you have to maintain oil level in the engine at its safe value also replace old engine oil with new. The Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor measures the volume, temperature, and density of the air flowing into your engine. With that critical information, the computer calculates how much oxygen is available to burn and adjusts the amount of fuel it sends. A clean engine air filter protects your MAF sensor, so replace your engine air filter as recommended at a good car servicing center.
