is your CEL on? What 4 digit code or codes did you get when you scanned the car? Replacing the MAF is one of the last things to do when you have drivability issues.


Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down.
