Default Where is the mass air flow sensor located in a 2000 Honda 4cyl?

I'd like to try cleaning it with some mass air sensor cleaner before having it replaced. Thanks in advance.

Honda's do not use a mass air flow (MAF) sensor. They use a manifold air pressure (MAP) sensor. The MAP sensor measures vacuum vs the MAF sensor measuring air flow/temperature. No real reason to clean a Honda MAP sensor. Are you having engine performance/idle problems?

Doh. When the guy at Autozone hooked it up to the computer, he said mass air flow sensor. Once the car warms up it frequently stalls after coming to a stop and when it doesn't, idles rough. With that, plus what the autozone computer said, any ideas as to what could be the problem?

What code number did the AutoZone guy give you?

Here are three usual suspects when dealing with a warm engine stall situation;
1. Fuel pressure regulator
2. Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR Valve stuck or opening prematurely)
3. Malfunctioning idle air control valve (IAC) or Improper idle adjustment

It would help narrow the problem down if you know what the Diagnostic trouble code # was.

I don't have any number. Guess I will take it somewhere during lunch and have it hooked up again.

Well, I took it Autozone and now it's a completely different code.

P1259
Vtec System Malfunction
Probable Causes:
1. Low oil/Pressure
2. Blocked Oil passage
3. Failed VCT oil control valve


The car was leaking oil at the end of January and in the middle of February I had the crank shaft seal and valve cover seal, and cam shaft seal replaced. It hasn't been leaking oil since and the oil level is good. The stalling was happening before the oil began leaking, or at least before I noticed it leaking. Not sure what the heck is going on now. That was the only code the person at Autozone gave me, if there was another and they just didn't tell me or scroll down on the machine, I don't know. I guess I'll try taking it to the Autozone near my house after work and see if it comes up the same and set up an appointment with the shop that fixed the oil leak.

Would anything listed above have anything to do with stalling?

Also, after googling the code, I realized I forgot to mention that if I go over 4,000 rpm in first gear, it seems to misfire and gets all jerky, is the best way to describe it.
