Aha - thats because the car has no idea how much air is going to it.

I cant remember how to start diagnostics, but there are a few threads on here about the tool etc and how to read it. Otherwise skip to your local library and read up on it in a gregorys ;)

It should run with the maf disconnected.
Mine was doing EXACTLY this with a stuffed maf.


That's correct. It will run in MAF failure mode where injector pulse is determined by a look-up table. It will run very rich.

Sure - unless the TPS is stuffed - then it cant calculate correct fuel weight for throttle position and you wont even get it to start...
