Can Running without mass airflow sensor cause long term problems?
My car backfired threw the cold air intake an one of
the silver filters blew out an since then my car will
idle but if I give it any gas it will bog down an stall.
But if I unplug it it runs fine. Will keeping it
unplugged cause long term problems?
It will throw off your fuel trim and continue to cause driveability issues. I would suspect your fuel mileage would suffer as well. Would suggest pulling codes or have a local shop determine what the root cause is here. Good Luck!
Agree with bryan,it is controlled by computer meaning air flow and gas,have it checked by a pro to know your issue,
If runs better with mass unhooked then the mass is probably damaged. Your air fuel mixture will not be correct running with it unhooked.
