    MAF Sensor??

    My car seems to be misfiring a little on startup then just going back to normal after a couple of seconds, i change the coilpacks the other day along with the spark plugs and no change, i disconnected the maf for my journey to work this morning and everything seemed to run a lot smoother. i take it this is a dodgey MAF? has anyone had a similar problem just for a bit of clarification. (still learning about all these kind of things)

    yeah mate is a common issue by looks of things, a lot of stuff on here about them
    don't buy a cheapy off ebay I tried this and seems others have and there well to but it bluntly sh*t
    make sure you get a bosch one
    I alos changed the n75 at the same time as these are a common thing to go on the car
    mine was running the same as yours and its sorted it all out now changing the bits

    or an airleak which is being masked by pulling maf off which would make it overfuel a little...

    i'll order the maf as i was planning on getting a new one anyway, and if the problem still persists i'll leave it to you when i come up on the 30th bill.

    thats what i didnt want to here tbh haha! it doesnt seem to misfire on start when the maf is disconnected though, so hoping its not the fuel pump. will see what happens if i change the maf, will give the throttle body a clean aswell
