During the diagnosis of the symptoms the technician may pull diagnostic codes from the Engine Control Module that point to a lean air/fuel mixture. If no vacuum leaks are found, then the mass air flow sensor (MAF) is often the cause.

Replacement of the MAF will be needed, along with a reset of the Engine Control Module and erasing of the diagnostic trouble codes.

    Erratic idle with stalling engine on deceleration. Have replaced ABS module, cleaned the electronic throttle module, now need a mass air flow sensor? Problem is still happening
