Responsible for measuring airflow into the engine, and relaying the information back to the engine’s ECU, MAF Sensors help create an optimal air-to-fuel ratio that allows the vehicle to perform to its full potential. A poor quality MAF sensor can dramatically impact a vehicle’s drivability, therefore it is imperative that they are reliable and fitted properly to avoid premature failure and expensive repairs, Cambiare advises.
Symptoms of a faulty MAF sensor include:
Often, a faulty MAF sensor is indicative that there is a problem somewhere else within the system. Many installers may find that clogged sensors are caused by leaks in the air intake system. This allows dirt particles to enter the system and damage the sensor element. Excessive oil mist, water ingress and exposure to road salt can further exacerbate the issue.
When replacing a MAF sensor, it is good practice to replace the air filter at the same time. By doing this, installers reduce the chance of premature failure and time-consuming warranty claims.
