hmm very true, the engine management light was on for the MAF sensor now that its been changed and error code cleared drove around for a day with the problem no lights or codes were present.
The problem wasnt present with the old maf - im 110% sure surely i would of noticed it...
thats a ******! tried contacting tdi-man but with no responce as yet he hasnt been on here recently. I think you may be right, as when i put a bottle of diesel injector cleaner it didnt happen as much.. (or maybe thats all in my head!)
