Hyundai Tucson: Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAFS)
MAFS uses a hot-film type sensing element to measure the mass of intake air entering the engine, and send the signal to ECM.
A large amount of intake air represents acceleration or high load conditions while a small amount of intake air represents deceleration or idle.
The ECM uses this information to control the EGR solenoid valve and correct the fuel amount.
- Check the MAFS visually.
- Mounting direction correct.
- Any contamination, corrosion or damage on connector.
- Air cleaner's clogging or wet.
- MAFS cylinder's deforming or blocking by any foreign material.
- Check any leakage on intake system and intercooler system.
- Turn the ignition switch OFF and disconnect the battery (-) cable.
- Disconnect the mass air flow sensor connector (A) and the installation clamp (B).
- Remove the mass air flow sensor (C) after loosening mounting bolt.
Tightening Torque : 9.8 - 11.8 N.m (1.0 - 1.2 kgf.m, 7.2 - 8.7 lb.ft)
- Install the component with the specified torques.
- Note that internal damage may occur when the component is dropped. In this case, use it after inspecting.
- Be careful not to damage or deformation the sensing element and front grid.
- Insert the sensor in the installation hole and be careful not to damage when installation.
- Install in the reverse order of removal.
