Re: What is it? Part of MAF?? for JTD
tthe MAF measures the amount of air that passes to said tube in an amount of time, by measuring how much air is passing through the MAF itself. If the tube is not matched to the MAF, there can, and will be a severe miscalculation of the air going in the engine...
Not a big issue for a diesel, where 10% miscalculation of air either produces smoke or a minor power loss, but on a petrol car fueling will be off anytime the car isn't operating in EGO-closed loop. which is always except when idling and cruising...
