Right. I think my engine is a CF3, by dint of the little black box on top of the rear-most bank of cylinders (see Alfa CF1/2/3 Engine Identification). Code 932A11.

So, the part number is 0280218054, with the sensor being F00C2G2044, according to Davealfa above (Cheers Dave!).

But what I can't work out is where the sensor's can be bought from. All I can find on a google search is eBay stuff - and I'm not too trusting of them! Can anyone point me in the direction of a Bosch supplier for the sensor?

Thanks again all, helpful bunch the lot of ya!

Agreed. If it ain't Bosch it ain't worth bothering with.

Hi there,

XFS, The part number 0 281 002 180. is correct, and was the cheapest i could find at my local car parts dealer ( camberly auto factors). From memory is was actually for a vauxhall. I just removed the sensor and fitted it into my current housing. Since replacing it, the car has run faultlesly, with no problems whatsoever. It is a cf1 type by the way. It is so different now that i nailed the car the other day and looked at speedo, and it said 140mph, so seems all good

Are these MAFs as troublesome when they're fitted to Vauxhalls and other brands?

I did not know that... I have already purchased it.
So...you tell me that I would not bother if it is not BOSCH..
I am gonna need to return it then..Hopefully if they accept of course.

Thanks.

sensors in use for Alfa, the first one is imitation (do not use it !!!) the others are Bosch parts, no need to change the housing if the MAF fails, very expensive piece of plastic indeed !

Well the bl00dy MAF on my V6 has failed again today

Drove it this morning without any problem, took it out in the afternoon and after 15mins driving the car lost power and eventually cut out.

Pulled over and thought 'Dont tell me its the MAF again', tried to start the engine several times but just cut out as soon as it started, disconnected the MAF and the engine started although injector light was on.

Bought the MAF from EBspares last year, thats pretty useless

Fired up my 220k kms Toyota Landcruiser which hadnt been started for 3 weeks and no problem, havent been driving the LC recently as it needs complete suspension rebuild but its such a reliable vehicle......certainly no MAF thats fails so regularly

So this one for Vauxhall would be the correct one?

Haha, just checked my father's Lada and it has the F00C2G2030 sensor in it
It's not working for some year now without any problem, even it's better w/o it. Sometimes idle-ing is jumpy, but nothing serious.
btw. It was full of dirt and very oily so I guess it just need a good clean

Yes Pascs,

That is the same one that i'm running in my v6 now, with no probs whatsoever. But i still would'nt buy it from e bay, as you just can't trust the sellers on there. I would just order it from a reputable auto factors like i did.

cheers

Thanks, unfortunately no reputable motor factors here in Qatar and dealer is after over 150 for one.

I could ask my wife, who is stuck in the UK at the moment, to pick one up from motor factors......................not sure she will be too impressed that I'm thinking of my Alfa in her time of need though

If you ever need anything sending over mate feel free to get it delivered to me and I can forward it out to you. Royal Mail small packet recorded to Middle East is going to be 10-20 dependent on weight.

Thanks Dan, really appreciate your offer

I have a lot of parts which I might order, sort of undecided if I want to spend money on it at the moment.

I need to take my car to the dealer anyway for some service so might see if I can get a 2nd hand MAF from the dealer for short term until I can buy a new one. They have about 50 cars which are going to be scrapped as they are clearing out their warehouse

Just took out the MAF and being part number 0280217531 the sensor is F00C2G2030 - it just seems crazy that the cost for the V6 is so different to other MAFs using the same sensor.

Hopefully I can get a 0281002180 for 1/3rd the cost of the V6 MAF

If its of any use to anyone, I pulled a CF1 MAF apart today - Bosch serial ending in 111, and the part number marked on the sensor is 661 11 2A - and a separate 520.

I replaced my air filter about a month ago with an Autodelta foam filter - hope this wasnt the cause of the MAF failure

Pretty strange for it to fail after only about a year

Hmm.. I would be at least a little bit suspicious. Did the MAF element look dirty or oily?

nope

An insignificantly small amount of very fine dust near the element but nothing on it.

Frustrating too as the car is due its yearly road test this week and my other 156 I had already put for service, now having to make do with my old Landcruiser instead

Ive read through the thread and Im a bit confused to say the least lol

Ive got a 2000 156 1.8 TS, I only got the car a week ago and its suffering from pretty bad flat spots under acceleration. From what I can gather, its likely to be a MAF problem? I tried disconnecting the sensor but there seems to be something broken on it as I cant seem to get it off.

Firstly, am I right in thinking that it would just be a new sensor that I would need as opposed to a complete new MAF?

Secondly, does anyone know the part number that I would need to order and what price I should be looking at paying?

Thanks in advance

Danny
