You mean without the intake tube? Yeah it will run that way but it is a good way to suck in crap.

Yeah, that's how my junk engine is right now, runs but with no intake tube or MAF/IAT sensors. Or any coolant, for that matter.

But, it's already blown up and I only run the engine to move the car around, so I don't care what goes in there, new engine is coming in a month or two.

What I mean is prevously when I had the intake tube off (doing a upper enging clean) the car did not run with the tube off. I could not even get it started. When I unplugged the MAF it ran.

I understand the car will idle and default itself, but in this case I can DRIVE the car without any problems with the while violin case off the vehicle. I figured something else. I'm trying to diagnose my misfire I have..

I dunno lol.

Wow this is an answer I've been looking for. I'm glad somone had a civil remark.

How would I go checking this? Flow chart for diagnosing MAF? Ref singals, ect?
