Check Engine Light and Lack of Power Due to Failed Mass Air Flow Sensor

The Check Engine Light may illuminate because the mass air flow sensor sends incorrect information to the engine control computer. This can cause a loss of power on acceleration. A failed mass air flow sensor will require replacement.
