  • Charlton Volvo Centre Now Stocking Air Flow Meters

    Charlton Volvo Centre Now Stocking Air Flow Meters

    The Air flow meter also be called
    • Maf
    • Mass air flow meter
    • Air mass meter
    • Mass air flow sensor
    • Air mass sensor
    • Air flow meter
    The Air mass meter sensor is fitted after the the air filter box .The meter  senses how much air passes through the sensor. The hot wire Maf measures resistance to current required to maintain the hot wire's temperature (an indicator of air flow).  The cars Maf measures the difference in temperature across an electronic membrane's upstream and downstream sides.
    The Maf sensor measures how much air is passing into the engine, this let's the cars ECU uses the information
    to regulate the correct amount of fuel to the engine.Fault Finding Problems:A faulty air flow meter will cause the ECU unit to deliver too much or too little fuel to the injectors.
    A petrol car will run badly with no air flow signal because they have to be within a narrow band of delivered air/fuel mixture to run smoothly compared to diesel engines. A diesel car can run without the air flow meter but the performance will be poor and the engine will feel sluggish and will have a lack of power.
    The usual symptoms that you will encounter from a faulty air mass meter are poor performance, a lack of power and inconsistent or rough idle speeds.
    Air mass meters deteriorate with age and as they do so they will send out the wrong information to the Ecu.
    The most common causes of failure are as a result of water or dirt entering the intake hose, therefore it is important to ensure replacement of the air filter at the recommended service intervals.
    It's also important to have an airtight intake hose after the air flow meter because the amount of metered air won't be correct if its leaking out of a damaged or split hose! Air leaks are called vacuum leaks. If these air leaks are not repaired you could be changing the air flow meter for no reason.Lack of power could also be caused by other sensors or components such as the following:
    Faulty EGR valvePressure converterLambda/oxygen sensorsClogged air filter

    Split turbo hoses

    Split vacuum hoses/pipes

    Crankcase breather valve

    Fuel pressure sensor

  • Volvo Sliding Window Blocks

    Posted on October 30, 2013 by admin


    Charlton Volvo Centre are now supplying Volvo window regulator sliding block clips for most Volvo models.

    If your window is jammed or juddering it is most likely the sliding block clips that are worn or broken.

    This is a relatively easy repair job for the average DIY car enthusiast.

    Following the instructions in your Haynes or workshop manual remove the door panel to gain access to the clips.

    The clips are secured by a metal pin that can be removed and installed by a pair of long nose pliers and a small ball point hammer.

    Fitting is a reversal of the above, test the window operation before re-installing the door interior panel.
