update.. have not fixed anything yet.. I left my battery un hooked for about an hour hooked it up turned the key and it fired up on first try.. so I don't know what that means.. don't know if I checked spark wrong is why thought it had no spark or if the reset fixed that... does this mean my mass air flow sensor is bad
