Hi All,

Whats the best way to sus out if your MAF is duff?

The reason I ask is that some say if you disconnect it & there is no difference then its duff because it hasn't made a change to the performance.

Others say that if the engine improves with the sensor disconnected then its is also duff as the MAF was making the engine run bad.

So the only real way of knowing if your MAF is healthy & doing what it should, is if when disconnected the van runs worse proving that it was making the engine run better when connected. Is this right :dunno:

Could just do to know before I go down the new MAF route as an easy fix to hopefully get rid of some white smoke. There is deffo no oil / water contamination so me thinking MAF or poss a new set of stanadynes??

2.5tdi 88.

Ta much,

Warren
