This car uses a Mass Air Flow sensor (hot wire type). Without this sensor working correctly the vehicle's computer cannot calculate how much fuel to inject into the engine.

yes, it will. unplug the mass air flow sensor. start the car. As the car idles, plug the sensor back in. If the car dies, your sensor is bad. this is only sure way to check if it is bad. I know. I just had mine replaced and watched as my mechanic did this and voila, replaced it and the car starts and idles just fine now.

It stalled on me last night. I got it started but I had to keep the rpms up so it wouldn't stall. Something gunned up
