Q: air flow sensor on 1998 Nissan 200SX

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Would a faulty mass air flow sensor cause the car not to be able to start?

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.
