Yipeeeeeeeeee . New MAF sensor! She "burbles"........
She burbles ( I love the new sound from the engine mid range ), she corners ( new rear suspension and tyres) the steering wheel doesn't rattle ( replacement one that someone else fitted fixed on properly) the airbag light is off (and fixed - see previous brackets
The MAF sensor arrived today, I took one look at the clip that held the hose to the top of the housing and decided to replace the sensor in situ ..... One hour later, big grin as she flew up the "Hill Climb" nearby.
Now, after the timing belt change and the replacement MAF sensor I can rev the engine with every hope that not only will she go above the 4,000 limit but will also not explode in shower of pulleys, cam shafts, valves, etc...... That's half the fun gone already.
Thanks to all who ever posted a MAF picture, solution, etc.
