ok on the maf the second prong from the last that is goldish in color does any one know what that does i dont know the color of the wire becasue i did the bp swap into a festiva so i have a festiva harness. but it is the wire that goes to the ecu and doesnt splice sith any other wires. it is withe on the festiva. if i unplug this wire from the maf the car will run as long as you dont try to rev the motor, but it you hook it up the car wont start. if you have it un pluged and the car running and you plug it in teh car will shut off any body have a idea?
i have changed the maf twice and no diffrences

sounds like a bad maf. that's a simple way to test it. if the car won't start with it plugged in, but it starts and runs when you unplug it, the maf is bad.
