New to this forum. I have a 95 fleetwood that I just replaced the motor in. It runs really crappy so I ran the codes & got a 00-43 (knock sensors) & a 00-48 (MAF sensor). I replaced the MAF sensor, but it still runs crappy. Can anyone tell me what is generally the problem with these codes & how to fix them?

Did the motor come out of a Cadillac?

no it came out of a Buick Roadmaster, but is the LT1 engine.

Is there nobody that ever dealt with a code 48 before? Can anybody help me?

0043 indicates that the computer is receiving a Knock signal, so maybe your new engine is knocking.
0048 indicates that the computer is not receiving a MAF signal, so maybe the vacuum line to the sensor is disconnected or the wire running to the computer is open in the harness.

The knock sensor drove me crazy when I swapped my motor, I just left it unplugged but my motor wasnt FI. Have you tried running without the knock sensors plugged up? Check the part number for the knock sensor of a Road Master versus a knock sensor for a Brougham and see if they are the same.
