Re: not running right

Thats what happened to me, I put a new MAF in and now everything is fine........does it run better if you disconnect the MAF?

Re: not running right

Temp gauge at 50C means the thermostat is knackered, and running at 50C will give you very poor fuel consumption, so I'm not soo surprised at 160 miles. Light could be MAF as Rafe suggests, or maybe lambda.
