V6 MAF failed again!
When I got the V6 the MAF was dodgy (red light on) so I replaced it with a second hand Bosch one that I knew was good. Three months later. Same problem again only worse. This time I had to unplug the MAF or it wouldn't start. The previous owner had replaced the MAF but I am not sure how long it lasted.
The V6 came with an induction kit which looks good quality but bizarrely it has been fitted so it sits in the housing for the old air filter.
I don't know much about after market induction kits (as I suspect they do nothing but add induction noise and usually take warm air from the engine bay rather than nice cold air from outside) but is this likely to be what is killing the MAF?
