Replace Mass Air Flow Sensor - The 4th most common repair is "replace mass air flow (MAF) sensor," which measures the amount of air supplied to your car's engine and determines how much fuel to deliver into the engine.
A "System Too Lean" code may be triggered by a range of issues from a dirty air filter to a faulty Mass Air Flow sensor, which measures the amount of air supplied to the engine and may result in lack of power, hesitation and surges during acceleration.

com/) specializes in thin-film metallization processes, producing sensors in four main categories: (1) infrared thermopiles used in appliance, automobile, medical and other applications for non-contacting temperature measurement; (2) magneto-resistive sensors that measure changes in magnetic fields to determine position, angle, rotation, or current; (3) mass air flow (MAF) sensors to measure the changes in air flow and other gases for use in automotive, medical and industrial applications; and (4) MEMS-based inclination sensors for the precise measurement of level, angle or tilt in construction equipment, automobile and aerospace applications.
The challenge Visteon faced was to integrate two mass air flow sensors to function as one and deliver the engine performance consumers expect.
