Re: Nope, the engine will run fine without a MAF
You, of course, are completely correct - pulling the plug on the MAF does not kill the engine.
Did so, let the engine idle for about 5 minutes - was JUST about to shut it down and go get a new MAF, when all of a sudden the surge happened again and RPMs shot up to 1,500.
So - I guess this rules out the MAF.
Any suggestions of what other sensors contribute to the idle calculations? Would a failing temp sensor do this?
When the engine surges to a high RPM it runs fine at that speed -- I suppose that rules out a failing crank sensor, right?
