About Air Flow Mass Meters
The Citroen air flow mass meter is an electronic air flow sensor, also referred to as an air flow mass sensor, which measures air flow; the mass of air which is flowing through the car's engine, and is an important part of the car's Engine Control Unit (ECU). The Citroen air flow mass meter has an important part to play in the performance, power and efficiency of the engine.
The Citroen air flow mass meter is usually found in the plastic housing between the engine and the air filter, connected by the air metering pipe.
The engine needs the correct amount of air and fuel flowing through it in order for the fuel to burn in the cylinders and for the engine to ignite or spark at the right time. If the ignition sparks at the wrong time, there will be less power in the engine and it will try to make up for this by using more fuel, significantly reducing fuel efficiency, which in turn increases the car's CO2 emissions. The Citroen air flow mass meter works by measuring the air flow and sending these measurements to the ECU which, based on these measurements, controls the amount of fuel flowing into the engine at the point at which the ignition sparks.
The Citroen air flow mass meter will, over time, wear out or stop working. When this happens, the performance of the engine is likely to be affected and engine emissions will be higher. A fault in the Citroen air flow mass meter will cause the Check Engine light to show on the dashboard to indicate a malfunction with the Citroen air flow mass meter. A broken air flow mass meter can sometimes prevent a car from idling properly (the ability for a car's engine to run whilst it is not moving) and may cause the engine to splutter and stall. If there is a fault in the Citroen air flow mass meter a replacement Citroen air flow mass meter should be purchased.
- Unfortunately, the founder of Citroën went bankrupt in 1934, even though the cars they produced were selling well and incredibly popular. The company exists today because tyre company Michelin bought the majority of shares in the company.
- The 1934 Citroën 7CV was the first mass-produced car to have front-wheel drive, hydraulic brakes, and real suspension! This basic design found its way into subsequent models right up until three decades later in the mid-1950s.
- Citroën was the first company to offer credit for buying cars! André Citroën registered a consumer credit company for the sole purpose of providing car buyers with the credit they'd need to buy one of his cars!
- The founder of the company, André Citroën, is renowned as something of a genius when it comes to marketing. He specifically targeted adverts for the 1922 Citroën Type C at women owners, and soon after the car became very popular, earning the nickname 'Petit Citron' after the distinctive lemon yellow paint job.
- French president Charles de Gaulle's life was saved by Citroën not once, but twice. In 1961 a Citroën DS managed to stay intact despite there being a bomb made of plastic explosive, dynamite, oil, and nails. It even managed to drive away from the scene. In 1962, de Gaulle was attacked again, this time with machine guns, but the Citroën again managed to get away from the would-be assassins.
