          Comments about BWD Mass Air Flow Sensor:

          Replaced this on my Montana. This part was easy to instal but it being a cramped van (engine compartment) I had to remove the air box. Also the prices shown reflect the total after the core charge so the actual price of this was [$] luckly i had the old part ( bring it in with you)

            I bought it online and it was at a store 20 miles out of my way. I asked that they send it to a store near by and was told they would not, since I already paid. That made no sense at all.

              I checked values vs. my stock MAF Sensor, and they were significantly off-- as much as 50% different in some cases. Had to return it since it didn't work. Not recommended.

              • Q:

                If this was not working right for whatever reason, could it cause the engine to overheat?
                Asked on 12/13/2012 by Matt from Ohio

                  A:

                  The mass air flow senor can cause a rough engine idle, a hesitation that could be mild or severe, a lack of power, poor fuel economy and yes the mass airflow sensor can turn on the check engine light. In many cases an engine light diagnosis can be narrowed down by the set trouble code. But often the MAF sensor, set trouble codes will actually be a symptom of the root cause. An example is a P0102, which stands for low air volume or input signal to the computer. This can be a wiring issue, problems with the sensor itself or even an actual air flow issue discussed further below. This is why you still need to start with the basics and check for things that would be more common than a defective MAF. One of these would be a vacuum leak where air is being pulled into the intake manifold, in essence bypassing the flow sensing element. Another situation where the mass airflow sensor can be bypassed is when the air duct that runs from the air filter housing assembly to the throttle body is torn. This is a very common condition on older high mileage vehicles. This will also allow air to enter the engine that has not been counted by the computer. This can cause symptoms and set trouble codes that could indicate a sensor failure. For further assistance, please feel free to call us at 1-877-238-2623 or visit your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our representatives would be more than happy to assist you.

                What is the difference in MAF sensors, between the one with the cones (where it hooks up to air intake hose) and the one without.
