Here is a list of common situations experienced by our customers and simple solutions that have resuled in satisfactory results:

I installed the new MAF and now my car is performing worse!

Please make sure that you have disconnected the car's battery 30 minutes prior to installing the new MAF sensor and then reconnect the battery after installation. Many times it is because the ECU ( Engine Control Unit - Your car's brain) is calibrated to use signals produced by the old MAF sensor and because the signals from the new will be stronger the ECU will make incorrect calculations. Resetting the ECU will require it to recalibrate to the new MAF sensor that has been installed resulting in correct calculations being made and ideal engine performance.
