Hey guys, my car has not been running well lately and i have been getting intermittent CE lights that will come on when the car idles for a while and then clear themselves when you cruise for a little while. This condition is also very bad on cold startup where it feels like the car is not responding well to throttle imput. I have to give it significant gas to stay running when its cold, it will stall otherwise. Codes came up as 98 and 66 for KOER and 81 and 66 for KOEO. 66 is maf signal voltage too low. what should i do about this...take the MAF off and clean it out, check wiring and reinstall? anyone with any experience with this code? Thanks in advance.

I am using an "oiled" K&N panel filter and a Pro-M 75mm MAF. The MAF has only been on the car for about 6 months so i cant see it being all that dirty but i will remove it and clean it anyways. I also got a code for 98 during the KOER test which im not sure about. I didnt get a change to check my chilton manual for the explaination but according to your link in your sig...code 98: Did not pass KOEO yet (Get 11 in KOEO first)...im not sure why this would matter to get the KOEO code before the KEOR test. let me know

I recently added an Excel spreadsheet to my website. I have been accumulating codes, wiring diagrams, and various troublshooting tidbits for a few months now. Look on the troubleshooting page.
You will need to have excel to view the spreadsheet.

The K&N filters tend to let oil fly out of the filter, and eventually the oil accumulates on the MAF sensor. Over time the layer of oil degrades the output of the sensor.
A couple of minutes with a can of brake cleaner will do very well at cleaning the elements.

Code 66 MAF below minimum test voltage.
Insufficient or no voltage from MAF. Dirty MAF element, bad MAF, bad MAF wiring, missing power to MAF. Check for missing +12 volts on this circuit. Check the two links for a wiring diagram to help you find the red wire for computer power relay switched +12 volts. Check for 12 volts between the red and black wires on the MAF heater (usually pins A & B). while the connector is plugged into the MAF. This may require the use of a couple of safety pins to probe the MAF connector from the back side of it.

There are three parts in a MAF: the heater, the sensor element and the amplifier. The heater heats the MAF sensor element causing the resistance to increase. The amplifier buffers the MAF output signal and has a resistor that is laser trimmed to provide an output range compatible with the computer's load tables.

The MAF element is secured by 2 screws & has 1 wiring connector. To clean the element, remove it from the MAF housing and spray it down with electronic parts cleaner or non-inflammable brake parts cleaner (same stuff in a bigger can and cheaper too).

The MAF output varies with RPM which causes the airflow to increase or decease. The increase of air across the MAF sensor element causes it to cool, allowing more voltage to pass and telling the computer to increase the fuel flow. A decrease in airflow causes the MAF sensor element to get warmer, decreasing the voltage and reducing the fuel flow. Measure the MAF output at pins C & D on the MAF connector (dark blue/orange and tan/light blue) or at pins 50 & 9 on the computer.

At idle = approximately .6 volt
20 MPH = approximately 1.10 volt
40 MPH = approximately 1.70 volt
60 MPH = approximately 2.10 volt

Check the resistance of the MAF signal wiring. Pin D on the MAF and pin 50 on the computer (dark blue/orange wire) should be less than 2 ohms. Pin C on the MAF and pin 9 on the computer (tan/light blue wire) should be less than 2 ohms.

There should be a minimum of 10K ohms between either pin C or D on the MAF and ground.
