i got told that 9 out of every 10 case of the engine light coming on has to do with emissions. did you leave you gas cap un tightened. that cause the engine light to come on and it has to be cleared.

EVERYONE.....Thanks for all the advice..... I went the other day and bought a MAF sensor from NAPA and it took me almost 5 hours but I replaced it!! And the light hasn't been back on since then.... so Im just happy that I have that particular problem taken care of. Im leaving for Mississippi Thursday so Im hoping everything is all good!! btw... I havent ever left the gas cap untightened....but I have heard that from several people that it will cause the light to come on.

If you didn't disconnect the negative battery cable when you installed the new MAF, I would recommend you do so for about 10 minutes to clear the KAM (keep alive memory) in the ECU. they advise you do this anytime you change any of the engine sensors. once you restart the engine, it will learn new settings to go with the new sensor.
