Engine Performance problem
1999 Buick Regal 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
Car starts and runs for 5 minutes then shuts off and I have to wait until cooled before it will restart. When it is started the tach fluctuates around like it is searching for something then dies. If I disconnect the MAF it will run smooth, why? Could you also explain the MAF and MAP and how it works in the electronic module (computer)? Can I clean the carbon off the MAF with steam? Any recommendations on understanding sensors in an automobile? Don't want to waste money trying things it may be. Really would like to know what the problem is so it can be fixed as cheaply as possible. Thanks for any help!
have the same problem?
