What does a mass air flow sensor replacement involve?

Depending on the manufacturer, a number of different processes will need to be done in order to access the mass air flow sensor, however the mechanic will need to do some of the following basic steps

  • The mechanic will assess the situation by reading the diagnostic codes and checking live data
  • Once confirmed that the mass air flow sensor is faulty, they will continue on to replacing it.
  • Once replaced, the mechanic will start the engine and recheck the error codes
