If say one is wet. And smells like fuel. It means that plug isn't sparking. There for fuel isn't being ignited. So that's y the plug will be wet. And if they are dry then it's is sparking.

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
