    I parked my impala on a side hill with about 1/4 tank of gas in it. When I went back to start it, it took 3 cranks to get it started. The low fuel light came on. I quickly drove to flat ground and after about 1 mile the car stalled and wouldn’t start again. I towed the car to a mechanic. He checked the fuel pump and that is good. The fuel filter is also good. The car will start and after about 15 minutes it quits running. The mechanic said that if he unhooks the maf sensor, the car runs fine. Anyone have any idea what is happening. Thank you.

    Well it looks like you’ve answered your own question. If it runs fine with the Mass Airflow Sensor disconnected, then you need to install a new MAF sensor! Boy I love these easy ones! LOL

    I just spoke with my mechanic. He is going to try a new maf sensor and see if that fixes the problem. But, I should say that he is trying that as a first part to try to fix the problem. He thinks it might be something else.

    Well, if it runs fine with the old one disconnected I’m sure replacing it should fix you up. Good Luck…

    My mechanic is getting in the maf sensor today. I hope it works and will let you know either way.

    They replaced the MAF sensor and the car has been running fine. I was a little concerned about taking the car on an hour trip, but I didn’t have any trouble. Thanks to the forum and I hope my problem and solution helps someone else.

    Glad you’re happy and have a good running car. I felt pretty sure it would be the MAF sensor.
