The 03 is acting weird, the car is running fine and suddenly, when I stop at a red light the thing dies, sometimes at any speed the car dies even if I step on the gas, what could it be now?? TPS? IAC valve?
Do you have an OBD2 scanner? My car had a pending code for the crankshaft position sensor, but never popped a CEL when my car was cutting out intermittently.
No I don't have a scanner, I'm gonna get one.
Anyway, the problem was found (apparently), I swapped the IAC valve and TPS from the 01, and the problem was consistent, then I swapped the MAF problem solved...
I tested the 03 MAF on the 01, the symptoms were the same. Now I need to get a MAF sensor
See if you can find a low mileage used one. I got one from Morad and then again from another user on here. The aftermarket ones are shoddy and I'd rather spend 50-75 bucks on a used OEM part than the 200 the parts house wants for whatever craptacular brand they stock.
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.
