Why does your car work better when you unplog and air flow sensor?

Not sure what you are asking. Do you mean clean a sensor ? Or so you mean disconnect a sensor ? Anyway, a sensor sends the computer a message. The computer then sends a command based on that message.This command will be fuel delivery rate or ignition timing (or even a stored trouble code).

I don't think "your car works better" now...it just appears that way for awhile.

The way a flow sensor works depends on the type of flow sensor. The simplest forms like mechanical flow meters use a pressure sensor to measure volume capacity and rate. Essentially a flow sensor measures the quantity of liquid by measuring force created by it's movement. They can do this either mechanically or electronically.

The mass air flow sensor commonly becomes dirty. The sensor can be removed, and the sensor wires can be cleaned to work like new.

Yes a PIR sensor does work at night. In general, they work better at night than during the daytime.

From my experience and basic knowledge of owning a 1.8 and 2.2 engine, i believe i carries a MAF Sensor...The 2.2 carries an air flow meter...

Effective communication is important at work. The ability to relate needs in an efficient manner helps the work flow better and creates better morale.

It is built into the mass air flow sensor on that year. That will be on the side of the air filter box where the air intake duct work comes out of the air filter box and goes to the engine / Throttle body housing. The duct work is clamped to the mass air flow senser.

your turbo wont work, ie loss of power etc.

It should be located in the duct work between the air filter and the throttle body.

Your car will run with the slow mode and it might die some times but still will run very slow. Try a mas air flow sensor spray (sold at any auto parts) if still does'nt work, change it.

makes blood flow easier resulting in a better work out.

No radiators work best by allowing air flow to rise through them, a small fan will be better.

It is built into the mas air flow sensor, And you can find that on the side of the air filter box and clamped to the air intake duct work that goes to the engine throttle plate housing.

Technically you don't summon a familiar, a familiar chooses the person in which they will work with. This is for better energy flow and less controversy or arguments.

The Kinect sensor is for only the Xbox 360.

Probably a temp sensor for your fan(s).

Yes. The sensor or the wiring and connections could be faulty.

The specific answer to your question depends on the specific sensor you are referring to. In general, a sensor of some sort (pressure, flow, light, current, voltage, motion/occupancy, temperature) is put in series with the load it controls. It can be normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC). If NO, once the sensor "senses" what it is meant to react to, it will close the circuit and the load it controls will turn on. If NC, the circuit will be opened and the load will turn off.

Yes, the sensor bar comes with the Wii. If you lose it or it gets damaged, you can buy a wireless one in stores, but it is recommended to be a wired one, they work better, because the wireless ones still have some problems

You locate cam-sensor check for loose or broken wires ,if this doesn't work replace cam-sensor.

There is a sensor of some sort inside it that goes to the sensor bar the sensor bar accepts the sensor as commands which allows you to freely move around in games.

It is built into the mass air flow sensor on that year model. You can find it clamped in the air intake duct work that comes from the air filter box and goes to the engine throttle body housing. It will be right at the air filter box when the duct work starts. It will have an electrical connector pluged into it.

A mass air flow sensor, measures the mass(weight/temperature) of the air the engine is taking in. It does this by heating a wire in the sensor to a certain temperature and as the air flows past it cools the wire. The amount of current it takes to maintain the temperature lets the ECM know how much air it ingested by the motor and calculates the amount of fuel that is need.

they carry a flow of electricity

User Avatar

Yes it does i have 4 motion plus remotes and they all work on a normal sensor bar. :)
