What Does a Mass Air Flow Sensor Do?

What Does a Mass Air Flow Sensor Do?

Knowing the functions of a vehicle's mass airflow sensor (MAF) will not only help you better understand how your engine works but will help you identify a faulty air flow sensor. Read on to learn more about the various functions that your mass airflow sensor provides and what can happen if it starts malfunctioning.   A mass airflow sensor calculates the oxygen flowing to your engine for the ideal air-to-fuel ratio. The mass airflow sensor helps to increase engine efficiency by doing so. Most cars use the hot wire principle when it comes to the airflow sensor. It relies on two sensors: one electrically-heated sensing wire and one temperature sensing wire.  The engine throttle opens when you press on the gas, allowing more air to flow around the hot wire. The more air is let in, the more electric current is needed to keep the wire hot. An electronic chip and PCM work with the airflow signal to calculate how much fuel needs to be injected. This measurement helps keep th ... read more

Why Does My Tire Pressure Fluctuate This Time of Year?

Why Does My Tire Pressure Fluctuate This Time of Year?

  The winter weather in many areas can bring about an extensive range in temperatures throughout the day and night. These drastic temperature changes can cause the air inside your tires to expand and contract. In some cases, it may even trigger the tire pressure light on your dashboard, also known as the TPMS or Tire-Pressure Monitoring System.    For most drivers, this light can be quite a surprise. However, there's no need to panic. The light does not mean your tire is leaking or in absolute danger. It simply means that one or more of your tires have lost pressure, and you need to refill them with air. Keeping your tire pressure consistent can be a challenge this time of year. Your tire expands when it's warm and contracts when it's cold. Though it may require you to put more effort into keeping track of your tire pressure, you need to ensure they're running optimally and safely.    The TPMS light will go out on its own most of the time o ... read more
