My car cuts off immediately after it starts. What is this?

Asked by Jun 04, 2014 at 09:19 AM about the 2003 Lexus ES 300 Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Recently got a new air flow sensor
installed. I noticed there was a tiny
hose disconnected from it. The next
morning the cranking issues started. I
noticed the hose had slipped back off
and it was just blowing air once I
finally car the car started. Could this
be the culprit? Oh and the check
engine light is back on.

Most definitely! Use a zip tie or small hose clamp to secure it.
