Good day fellow enthusiasts. OBDC codes on my 98 NB were cylinder 2 & 4 misfires, front and rear O2 sensors and MAF sensor. So I recently replaced the MAF sensor, coil pack and spark plug wires. All codes on the computer cleared but the MAF sensor. Any ideas on the culprit even though the sensor was replaced?

Thx guys for any assistance.

I've read somewhere it takes a little learning curve in the ECU to see the new MAS. Try taking both battery leads off the battery and holding together for ten seconds reconnect everything and check it again.

What is the actual code number (P####)? That would help us help you out a lot better.

maf

Does your 2.0 have an electronic throttle valve controller? If so you need to recalibrate that after replacing the maf sensor like this; After doing the CPU reset instructed by 02silversport above, turn key to on position without starting car, leave ON position for 25-30 secounds, then back to off position. YA DONE MAN! :goodjob:

As far as I know, 98 NB model doesn´t have electronic throttle valve controler, but only cable actuated one. mine is 2001 and it has cable one. it´s same procedure? or there´s any other action to be taken?

thnx and rgrds
