Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006 Discussion, Mass Air Flow Sensor in Cadillac Escalade Forums; Got a code from check engine light p0101 mass air flow sensor would cleaning the air filter help this or ...
There is a thread on here that totally debunks the hype that someone went through the trouble to get the test graphs to back up the truth about the k&n filters
They may be ok to use on stuff like my gas powered rc truck which is a race machine and will likely see a new engine before each race but not in a modern car or truck(same goes for classic cars like my 79 Chrysler cordoba that is carb engine given its hard on air filters a k&n would be a waste there also)
Long story short ditch the k&n your engine will thank you in the long run
I have my old k&n filter in the box of my oem filter and the oem is double the thickness of the k&n(2inches vs 1) which equals to more surface area to filter better
Trust me gm didn't put all that r&d into the stock system for nothing
I found also that it will cause the throttle body to get carbon more often(have yet to clean it since) due to the oil burning in the blow back
That would be me. The info and graphs have been posted in several subforums. ---------- What RC truck are you playing with Cadillac Man? My last one was a fairly heavily modded T Maxx.
I have a 5th scale redcat racing short course truck(2stroke gas)it will run so smooth since I redid the carb needles
Its nice just parts aren't cheap compared to the others I have
I also have two hip models
A older rs4 nitro with all wheel drive(wanting to convert it at some point due to fuel cost)
Brand new mini recon(well it was new for a week ha ha) I recently converted it to brushless just need a lipo for it
Not sure if your into quadcopters but I have been into them lately
I have a dji phantom 2 vision(takes great pics and video)
I also have some smaller quads
2 hubsun(fpv model) that I used to practice indoors(planning on selling them)
2 estes proto x(had to get a second for spare rotors) its small but fun
I do plan on getting a fpv kit for the redcat and taking it to a track sometime(love this hobby)

I see...hmm, I'm coming from experience with a 1st gen Escalade, so the different intakes might have something to do with it.
I think a MAS is too sensitive to clean, so I guess replace it and change out the KN filter. You could try a performance dry filter from like aFe or Airaid. I changed from my KN kit to a Volant intake kit, and have been much happier. It came with a Donaldson Powercore filter, which is dry and seems to work really well.
Hi jwpalmer, Could it just be a bad mass air flow sensor? I had a K&N FIPK for years and never had an issue, and I did get better performance.
after I posted this thread I was put into the hospital for 2 days and my escalade sat and when I got out and started it up and the check engine light hasn't come back on but when it was on gave me the code p0101 mass air flow sensor so that's why I posted I'm new to my escalade and want to stay ahead of any issues. Thanks to the Cadillac Man for all his help with every issue that I have posted on here! You have helped me more than I can thank you!!
