View Full Version : help: car shutting down

02-10-2008, 09:00 AM

I was trying to replace my MAF today and could not get the airbox removed. I then tried to start my car but it's now idling between 200-750rpm and then the car shuts down. I cannot start the car now and I noticed there is some oil leaking out of the back of my exhaust. I reconnected all the plugs and the airbox looks fine... I can't figure out what the heck is going on. please throw me some inputs. thanks.

problem solved. thanks

You might have broken one of the wires at the maf plug inside the harness.

Yea, it was exactly that. managed to get it back in. I'll leave the maf swapping to a mechanic this time. Thanks mike.

i've unplugged my maf an uncountable number of times and switched out 7-8 different maf setups when i was trying to fit my intake... no need for a mechanic [up] just be gentle.
