    bit of a tip (hopefully helpful)

    while problem solving with my car (2.5 tdi) i replaced my maf with an ebay special, its was perfect to start with then all of a sudden at 3500 rpm it would stop pulling,so i went back to my original bosch one, i was told you could clean mafs so i thought i would give it a go, looking for a cleaner for the maf was a bit of a puzzle to start with and some were quite expensive, but i found a nice big aerosol from halfords (electrical contact cleaner) for 3.99 and its worked amazingly on my original bosch maf. so thats my tip, don't scrap your mafs yet, give it a clean for 3.99 first and see how you get on.....worked for me and saved a few quid
