Re: Can Anyone Help

I had the same problem with my GTV and it was the Lambda sensor that needed replacing rather than the airflow meter, symptoms were part throttle hesitation (chugging when cruising along), hunting idle, but when putting my foot down it went away.

i thought it was more common for the MAF's to give problems higher up the rpm range so I'd look at the lamda first.

you can check the maf by disconnecting and going for a drive to see if it improves, if it runs worse then your maf is probably ok. if you search MAF you'll find loads of info on here

good luck
