Subject: Re: Air Mass Meter (where is it?) Please!

Brad =A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0I`ll try to give you the simple answer. Here is what happens when you step on the gas pedal. 1. The throttle plate opens and allows air into the engine 2. As the air is let into the engine the air has to first pass through the air filter and the air mass meter 3. When it passes through the air mass meter the air is measured =A0 (the way it is measured is that there is a wire in the amm that measure the temp of the incoming air and sends that info to the fuel injection computer. The computer keep that wire in the amm at a certain temp and the computer can tell how much air is coming in by how much voltage it takes to keep that wire a that certain temp. The temp of the incoming air dictates its density) 4. The fuel injection computer takes that information and tells the fuel injectors how much fuel to put in the engine. Hope this helps Jerry C
