maf/ cam sensor/ rough shifting
ok so i went to jail for a lil bit yeah yeah iam fk up and this all my fault, never the less my people got the car out the impound drove it to my house and left it outside of my 3 car garage instead of in it for the past 5 months through winter... thanks fam yer the best:/. obviously before i hopped in it and drove it i checked all the fluids and washed my baby before i went out that night to see what ery one was on. 2 days later check coolant came up, checked it, was low, and found a small leak and solved that issue. the next day i noticed an erratic idle, pulled the codes, and had a few cam sensor codes(po340,p1519,p1525) changed the intake cam sensor after testing the old one with the ohm meter revealed it was bad(disintegrating wiring) this did not solve the issue and it got worse to the point that the only way to get it home or to keep it running was to unhook the MAF sensor. seems to run ok just ok def not what it was or what i was used to atleast. and now it shifts a lil hard up and down shifting. can a MAF sensor be causing this? is there an exhaust side cam sensor? my codes said bank 1 and its a single vanos unit. and someone already grabed the MAF sensor of bitches twin at the junkyard. so is there a test i can do to test the MAF sensor? any suggestions or ideas greatly appreaciated.... oh and i lost a lil trans fluid when i pulled the radiator sorting the leak out but i checked it and added half a quart that it was low... and i have no trans light on just the light from when i unhook the MAF.... oh and a side note i replaced the head on this when i bought it about a year ago, but ive put over 16,000 thousand miles on it since then so some of the threads ive read talk about slipped timing chain like my timing be off... but its been 16000 miles and ive been drivn this btch like i stole it so i doubt it wouldve just happend, but **** it maybe ill pull the valve cover and check the cams quick make sure thier squared up
