    Default 505 Air mass

    Hello,
    I haven't posted here before, but it seems like a helpful friendly place. I have a love-hate relationship with a '91 505 wagon. Great car when its working, really useful machine, but its costing me a bit now to keep it on the road!
    The latest problem apparently is the air mass, and a mechanic is suggesting I try to find a second-hand one, as a newie is plenty $$$. Does any one here have a lead in Brisbane for such a thing?

    Thanks for reading,
    Andy

    By "air mass", do you mean the air flow meter ?

    Try calling Pugwreck in Melbourne. They post stuff interstate, and are not rip-offs.

    Hi Beano,
    I believe that's right, he pointed at an electronics box sitting atop the air intake from the filter, and explained that it metered air flow. And gathered it was a short hand title.
    Thanks for the contact, I'll try them Monday.

    If you dare, on this forum I made a topic of how to tune it up... most of the time, is only the spring that lose tension.

    Quite often the Coolant Temp Sensor has or is failing or the connector to it. Check for air leaks around the inlet ducting too.

    AndyMac,
    Can you tell us if the Air Flow Meter is the "flap" type with adjustable CO screw or the later "HotWire" flow meter?

    On the Volvo flap type we could play around with them, see Molerpo's earlier post.
    The later "HotWire" type usually meant replacement. ]: .

    It will have a flap type sensor. Why has your mechanic diagnosed the air flow meter ? What are the car's symptoms ?
