I have a 1994 Nissan Sentra LE, 152k miles, 1.6L multiport injected engine. I changed the oil and flushed the block with diesel fuel, and replaced the oil filter. The car has been using excessive amounts of oil, but not burning it; figured it might be fouled oil passages. When I started the car it had a difficult time starting and then died. When restarting the engine service light came on. The error code was and STILL IS 12 (Mass air flow sensor). I replaced the air flow sensor with a new one and the car started only to die a few moments later. I dismounted the MAS started the car, let warm up, and then remounted the MAF. The car would idle but die as soon as gas is given. Without the MAF the car will start and drive but bucks and stalls at about 30 acting like it is starving for fuel. I checked the F.I.C.D. Solenoid, the A.A.C. Valve and the injectors, they seem fine. The plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor are two months old. The air filter has 4500 miles on it. The car operated great before the oil change.
I am stumped. Any ideas you could throw my way would be greatly appreciated
have the same problem?
