Air and fuel are mixed together to be burned in your engine. You request how much of each you need by how hard you press on the accelerator, or by going up or down a hill, or by how much you are carrying in your vehicle as your drive around Thousand Palms. Based on how much air you need – and how much is available – your engine management computer sends the needed amount of fuel to your engine. But what if the computer is getting the wrong information about how much air is coming int
