I have the EPC Light, Check engine light, and Traction Controls hazard light with the MAF code popping from a cheap OBDII scanner from Autozone. I replaced the MAF with a new one and reset the code via an unpluged battery and holding +- together. with code gone, I ran the car for 40 miles. was still hunting for perfect idle. lights came back on at 35miles. I dont have $ to send the car to service. Please help if you can. I looked in the engine bay for a cracked vacuum line but could not find anything.
Lets go back in time, I do believe I broke it. Here is how the problem started - I was pulling into heavy traffic, reved her up and popped the clutch. apparently reved too much cause it lost traction for .001 seconds when i lost ALL power. I Thought i had stalled it (with traffic heading directly at me i tried to restart the engine) engine was running (barley), so it made a slight starter grind. power came back to me in 4-5 seconds (which seemed like eternity with the folks i pulled out in front of were pissed off cause i "slowed down" as soon as i turned infront of them.) EPC Light and Traction control light came on immediately. I can not turn off the traction control light. after two minutes into the drive, the check engine light also came on. It does not keep idle when at traffic lights and stalls out on the freeway. It runs VERY badley when the air is damp outside like Rain or high Humidity...
Should I just eat the $99 diagnostic charge?
