I ran over a tree in a storm. My car limped for a bit, then quit. When boosted it runs for a few seconds and when I touch the gas it quits. Code reader listed three things: Mass air flow sensor
Fuel rail pressure sensor A range
Camshaft position sensor A circuit

What should my next step be?

Hi,

This is a good one. When this happened, how big was the tree? Did it hit under the vehicle? Was there any body damage?

As far as where to start, I would start checking for damaged wiring and making sure everything listed above is still attached/connected.

Pic 1 shows the mass air flow sensor, which is near the air filter box and in the air induction tube.

Pic 2 shows the fuel pressure sensor, which is located on the fuel rail.

Pic 3 shows the camshaft positions sensor. It is on top of the cylinder head cover/valve cover.

Interestingly, the one thing that stands out to me is the MAF sensor (pic 1). It sits the lowest. The other two are on top of the engine.

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions. Additionally, if you can let me know the codes that were found, it may help me.

Take care,

Joe
