Not quite as the title means but any how,
Im fairly certain that my MAF has given up on me. I have tried unplugging it and the car runs like a dream without it. No more stuttering on start up and hesitant on excelleration. I also added a K+N Panel filter about 18 months ago so im guessing the oil is the culprit for its demise. I dont have VAG COM to scan with and dont know of anyone nearby who could help listed on here.
Anyway! the question i want to know is will i do any damage to the car at all if i leave the maf unplugged for a week? i dont get paid untill next week so cant afford a replacement? will it have any adverse affects on the car other than Engine light coming on?
I shall replace with a Bosch unit unless anyone else can recommend a decent alternative (i beleive the flea bay ones are carp?) or where to get the cheapest Bosch unit from, GSF etc?
I am budgeting on around Ł100 for exchange unit.
