Whenever you’re out on the road, reliability and dependability are must-have qualities you expect from your Mitsubishi. That means every part of your vehicle must be up to the task, including your vehicle’s mass airflow sensor.
The mass airflow sensor is just one of several important sensors that provide crucial measurements to the engine’s main computer. The MAF sensor takes measurements of the temperature and amount of air entering the engine. The engine computer uses this information to adjust the amount of fuel needed for the engine to run efficiently.
The MAF sensor is a critical component for nearly all engines with electronically controlled fuel systems. Without it, it would be much harder to accurately calculate the engine’s ideal air-to-fuel mixture needed at critical moments. If your vehicle needs extra power to climb a hill, for instance, it can use information from the MAF to add extra fuel. The MAF can also help cut back fuel usage during steady-state cruising, resulting in increased fuel efficiency on long trips.
It’s not unusual for a mass airflow sensor to suddenly go bad. A bad MAF sensor can cause a variety of symptoms, including:
Any of these symptoms warrant a visit to our service department for our Mitsubishi mass airflow sensor service.
