2001 MAF in a 1998 24V V6?
I suspect the MAF is going in my GTV. Not wanting to blow $250 straight up on this, I have the option of a $40 part in the local classifieds. It states the part is from a 2001 3.0 GTV V6 with 50k km on the clock.
Is it possible to change for this part? Additionally, is it really quick to swap the part because I could always just see if I can swap the part on the spot with this guy to see if it works? I haven't had a look under the bonnet in a while (lol) but could I assume it's just a couple of hose clamps and the connector?
The number on the MAF is 0 280 218 054
The symptoms I am having is hesitation/surging at medium throttle inputs at 3-4k, and when cold a bit of kangaroo'ing. But if I get up it, it pulls like a train so I just get up it more often, but would like to fix this sooner rather than later!!
Upon further inspection (I wanted to check the number on the MAF for a match, but it is on the underside - smooth design Alfa, smooth), I discovered my intake piping going from the MAF to the plenum is held together with considerable amounts of tape. Maybe I should see if this guy has the intake piping too...
