About Air Flow Sensors

The Toyota air flow mass sensor is an electronic air flow sensor, also referred to as an air flow mass meter, which measures air flow - the mass of air which is flowing through the car's engine. It is an important part of the Engine Control Unit (ECU).  The Toyota air flow mass sensor has a significant part to play in the performance, power and efficiency of the car's engine. The Toyota air flow mass sensor works by measuring the air flow and sending these measurements to the car's ECU which, based on these measurements, will control the amount of fuel flowing into the engine at the point at which the ignition sparks.
The engine needs the correct amount of air and fuel flowing through it in order for the fuel to burn efficiently 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 Toyota air flow mass sensor is usually found in a plastic housing between the engine and the air filter.  It's attached to the Toyota air hose at one end and the Toyota air filter box at the other.
The Toyota air flow mass sensor will, with continued use, 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 Toyota air flow mass sensor will cause the check engine light to show on the dashboard to indicate a problem with the Toyota air flow mass sensor. A broken air flow mass sensor can sometimes prevent a car from idling properly (the ability for a car's engine to run while it's not moving) and may cause the engine to splutter and stall. If there's a fault in the air flow mass sensor a replacement Toyota air flow mass sensor should be purchased.

Toyota trivia

  • The first car company to produce over 10 million cars in a single year (which they did in 2013), Toyota also boasts the record-breaking sales of one Corolla sold every 37 seconds (every 27 seconds in 2013). That made the Corolla the best selling car of all time!
  • Incredibly, there are more Toyota made cars on the world's roads than any other vehicle. It's not just high sales figures that make that viable either. Their durability means that even Toyotas that were sold 20 years ago are still on the road!
  • They might be one of the biggest and well-known brand names in the world, but Toyota is still very much a family business. Every CEO so far has been a descendant of the original founder.
  • Although Toyota started making its first cars in 1937, these were specifically produced to contribute to Japan's war effort. It wasn't until 1947 that they started producing cars for civilians.
  • Without the US, Toyota very likely wouldn't exist today as we know it. In 1950, the car company was struggling to fight off bankruptcy and only managed to make 300 trucks until the Korean War kicked off. The US then put in an order for 5,000 vehicles, transforming the company and its future.
