Default MAF sensor & Throttle Body Replace DIY

Hi all,

Replaced the MAF sensor & throttle body this morning. There arenít many photos so hereís mine:

After a back strain, I bought a back brace because of the stress on our backs while working on our cars...highly, highly recommended!




Hereís the sensor on top of plenum

T30 Torx with low profile ratchet needed here



New sensor in place

MAF sensor

New sensor $32 from Pelican

New TB from Pelican $202

Having another stool for tools and hardware really helps the back. Back brace is a new must for me.

Why replace?

Getting codes?

Upgrade?

Hi Tampa,

car threw code MAP-MAF and a throttle code earlier....after thorough cleaning of throttle body, code returned.

I never had any work done on the throttle body. For $200 for new TB & $32 for sensor, I changed both and code is now clear.

May have been just sensor, but I didnít want to take rear apart so I did both since bumper was already off. In worse case, I have 2 new parts that I know arenít the problem if code rears itís ugly head...
