    Quick question

    I replaced the fuel filter on my truck, and it ran good for about a day. I ran it low on gas not till it cut off but it was around the E mark I did get another fuel filter to put on it, which I am doing tomorrow. It still is spittin/sputtering/buckling kind of it had the same symptoms except now they are constant and most persistant when it is cold but it does it constantly as I said. I am thinking its the mass air flow sensor and it throws a code and then the light will go off for a while then come back on. I am not too sure what it may be so I am requesting the help of yall professionals. I have a code reader but not the fitting for my port on my truck to read the code. Any help is appreciated

    The fuel pump might be getting ready to crap out on you.

    See the manual section> over 216 manuals> Montero and Mighty Max Truck .PDF zip.

    You use a volt meter to get the codes. It's old school. Thm skanners are fur thm newz fangled trucks.

    Clean the MAF with sensor safe cleaner and see if that helps.

    in the book they show you what pins to put the meter on. then you count the swings of the needle. the book has a page of examples. Unless someone else knows of a way. But thats how we always did it. A scanner might work. But the plug is behind the center console area. Or drivers side kick panel.

    You can go to radioshack and spend $2 on a 12v electric buzzer. And you can check the codes with that. Heres a link to explain how to do it, just ignore the codes on that page, they are for an eclipse; http://www.vfaq.com/mods/wayback/Bra...ical/code.html
