    Hi all got a new MAF sensor a few days ago because my car was running really low on power. Bought a new genuine Bosch one from GSF car parts. And it's gone already?! It's back to how it was before. What shall I do?

    Got the MAF sensor yesterday morning. Could there be anything that would make the car ruin the MAF so quickly?!

    I reset the ecu and things seem to be fine at the moment.

    over oiled induction kit?
    vibration? (if not on oe airbox)

    both can kill maf's in short measure

    I'm currently using the standard air box and panel filter, but have ordered a piper cross panel filter

    Just got mine this morning, from ECP , was running for a week without maf , had ESP and engine light on , put new one in at the carpark , got my exchange so worked out £60.00

    ESP light had gone out but EML still on , got going and was running like a bag of poop , was miising boost at about 2000 rpm then felt fine, got home , noticed i hadnt fully tightened one side of the housing to the airbox , so sent that fully home and tight , started up again , EML still on , got off the drive and light has gone out , drives 100% now ;-) so another job sorted ..
