Replaced MAF, reset, its different/worse
Okay, long story cut short.
My 99 TS Sele has been a little breathless at low RPM for some time. A reset didn't help. I picked up a new non-Bosch MAF and plugged it in. I disconnected the battery for the day and then re-connected and dod the throttle reset thing (90secs on 90 secs off) then started it with no throttle pedal. I let it idle for a minute or two then the phone rang so turned it off and went indoors. End of the day.
Today, turned it on and went for a run from cold (The cars main issue was hesitation cold and general power loss on light throttle at any temp.) It drove like a dog!
My new problems!
When I pull off from a junction, the car will sometimes pick up well (better than before) and hare off, or judder and be generally gutless. On onw occasion it stalled.
Selespeed gear changes are not as smooth as bofore and at cruising speeds (about 60+ mph) the car sometimes judders a bit.
Now to my question. Is this likely to suggest that my new MAF is stuffed in a differnt way to the old, or am I barking up the wrong tree here?
Will disconnect the battery overnight and properly reset in the morning. Hoping this might help!
Any ideas gratefully received.
