Escort Gti 1.8 Missing

To tell if your MAF is faulty:

  • Start the car
  • Take note of how it is running
  • Unplug the MAF
  • Again take note of how the car is running.

If the car revs drop considerably or it stalls, the MAF is fine.

If there is no noticeable change, then odds are the MAF is faulty.

U will create a fault that way by unplugging it. Then ur engine management light will come on. And have to clear the fault on a machine. Faulty will be maf sensor open circuit

Haha no. The Escort is useless. Done it on many and never had a management light come on. Never found a code reader that read it either.

Disconnect the battery for 30mins to reset the system, then try and take it for a test drive. The ECU will re-learn.
