Hey guys i have a 2006 g6 coupe gt with a 3.5 v6. it has 62 thousand miles on it and runs great except for the idle is not consistent and some times the car would run like its missing and the tranny shifts hard when shifting from first to second . and sometimes from park to drive. but only does this when it gets warmed up. the check engine light is on an i got it scanned and the only code i got was p0102 maf sensor low input circuit or something. ive tried cleaning the sensor with electrical contact cleaner and it did not work. and ive read somewhere that this can problem can cause the computer to set the pressure in the transmission to high. i really need your help because i dont knw if my transmission is bad or just my maf sensor. i really need some advice before i go buying parts.

ok i did the test to the wires with the voltage meter i am getting 12 volts grounded. and the maf is gettin 12 volts when i switch the key in the on position. so the wiring is ok. i tested the signal that the maf was supposed to send to the ecd and it is reading zero even when i raise the rpm. so i am almost positive the maf sensor is not working. i will give u an update when i change it. to see if the hard shift goes away. i pray that it does. thanks for your help so far

The tranny control module uses the MAF sensor input to calculate shifting strategy. It's a critical input to several systems.

ok so i replaced the maf sensor. left the negative battery terminal off for a while to try an clear the check engine light. started up fine no check engine light. not stalling at full throttle. shifting smooth. until i turned the car off and back on again. the check engine light came back on and the car started to shift a little ruff again. but still was performing well at full throttle. do i have to clear the code with a obd2 scanner in order for it to function properly?
