Air flow sensors can typically go faulty around every 40,000 miles. This can happen due to a very gradual build up of dust and dirt on the sensor element which can send inaccurate air / fuel ratio readings to the ECU. The sensor element is a very sensitive unit; we don’t recommend using air flow meter cleaner as this can drastically shorten the life of the sensor.
If you don’t have an OBD fault code scanner, a simple free test can be carried out to diagnose if the air flow sensor is faulty. We don't recommend driving long distances with the following test as reduced fuel economy and premature engine damage can occur. You simply disconnect the wire harness which goes into the MAF and then go for a short drive around the block. If most of the problems you were having before have vanished, the MAF is bust and will need replacing with a new unit. During this time the ECU will not be receiving the perfect air / fuel ratio however it should be better than the faulty MAF being connected. Driven 2 Automotive will not be held responsible for any damage occurred during this test. Replacing a faulty air flow sensor with a genuine original unit will certainly pay for itself in the end, giving an increase in fuel economy and hopefully erasing all the mentioned faulty symptoms.
