Default When I plug in my MAF sensor the car dies

My wife stopped to get gas and was putting in gas when the pump was moving really slow. The attendant said the tank was low and to move to another pump. Shortly after the car sputtered out and died. I changed the fuel pump and the master air flow sensor and it does the same thing. I can get it to fire with some ether but as soon as I connect the air flow sensor back the car dies. The check engine light is on and it is running pretty rough. I can drive the vehicle without the sensor plugged in but I am sure this is not recommended. Could it be a fuel regulater or a throttle sensor?

Welcome to the KIA forums. It sounds like maybe sediment from the low level of fuel in the stations tank may have blocked a line or filter. Check contents of your fuel tank for badly contaminated fuel and drain if need be.. Also add a cup of metylated spirits to your tank to help with any water problem in fuel.

TAKE YOUR TIME, THINK IT OUT, DO IT RIGHT, DO IT ONCE!! original quote by me as far as I know. :rolleyes:
