TC off and P0101
I was driving to my friends house and the traction control turned off. Tried pushing the button to turn it on but could not. On the way back everything was fine at the beginning but then I got a CEL and immediately the traction control turned off. Car was running fine on the freeway but in the city when accelerating from a traffic light it was backfiring for a little (kinda like clearing its throat) and then pulling like crazy again and spinning the tires in 3rd. I scanned it when I got home and got a P0101. So how come the MAF is related to the TC? I thought the TC uses just the speed sensors. The engine has heads,cam, fast, NW102, etc. I also put a new MAF when I did the engine work. It wasn't some aftermarket MAF but a stock unit (think it was delphi). I did the engine work 3 years ago and never had a CEL before. I have noticed the TC turning off by itself after the engine work but never cared and never got a CEL.
What can be the issue?
How is the MAF related to the TC?
How is the TC on a GTO supposed to work? Sometimes I am like 45 degrees sideways before it kicks in.
I haven't oiled the filter recently so I don't think I got the MAF dirty.
Thanks for the replies.
