Fuelmiser CAF005 Air Flow Meter

Fuelmiser Air Flow Sensors are an essential part of any engine that utilizes fuel injection instead of carburettors. The sensors measure the amount of air drawn in by an engines intake and relay that measurement to the ECU computer. This allows the ECU to deliver the correct amount of fuel through the injectors to the combustion chambers for an optimal fuel/air ratio, efficient combustion, and maximum engine power. Using an unreliable air flow sensor can cause your engine to run poorly and can harm fuel economy. There are two main types of Fuelmiser air flow sensor which are carried by Automotive Superstore. Older engines call for a moving-vane sensor which consists of a flap that is held shut by a spring. As the engine pulls air through the intake the vane is forced open and a measurement can be determined. Drawbacks to this type of sensor include the fact that its design hinders the flow of air into the engine and that its moving parts can become fatigued and fail over time. The second type of air flow sensor is known as a hot wire sensor and is found on newer engines. This design consists of a platinum wire suspended in the path of the intake air. As the wire heats up its electrical resistance rises. Intake air moving over it causes it to cool, thus lowering its resistance. The sensor converts this difference to a signal that can be understood by the ECU and the ECU tells the injectors how much fuel to release into the combustion chambers. Benefits include the hot wire sensors lack of air flow resistance and its quicker response to changes in airflow.
