Want to learn more about Mass Air Flow Sensor replacements?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does the mass airflow meter (MAF) do?

The mass air flow sensor (MAF) is used to determine the flow rate of air entering into the intake system.

How does a mass air flow meter work and what are the components?

There are two types of mass airflow sensors that are commonly used by manufacturers, a cane meter and a hot wire version. On basic versions, there are three wires that are used, one reports back the a signal of the air mass and one of the air temperature (and one feed wire). This information is then used with the information being fed back by lambda sensors to make corrections to the fueling of the engine and make it more efficient.

How do you know when there is something wrong with your mass air flow sensor?

You may experience some or a number of the following;

  • When the 'Check Engine' light on your dashboard is on (EML)
  • When the engine won't start or cuts out during operation.
  • When the engine runs rough (a rough idle for example).
  • When the engine doesn't perform as well as usual.
  • When the car's fuel consumption is higher than usual.

When should you consider replacing the mass air flow sensor?

The basic fact is that if your mass air flow sensor has failed, it needs to be replaced before the car will drive correctly.

However, as there are many other issues that can cause the same symptom, it is better to have a diagnostic done prior to spending money replacing it.

How common is a mass air flow sensor replacement?

Although the units are getting more reliable, there is still a chance this can occur at least once in a vehicle's lifetime.

How can I extend the life of my mass air flow sensor?

Regular changes of the air filter in line with manufacturer's recommendations will prevent dirty air tarnishing the sensor.

So-called “sports” air filters, especially those that use oil to trap dust particles are well known for causing mass airflow sensor failures. This is even more common when an owner decides to clean the air filter and then over oils it, before putting it back in. The excess oil goes onto the mass airflow sensor and contaminates it.

What happens during a mass airflow sensor replacement?

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
