    Hi Guys,

    looking for a bit of info for a neighbour, he was on the motorway the other day and the car lost most of its power and went into limp mode with the accompanying waring light on the dash - he has taken it to be checked and it it spat out P200B Bank 2/5 hot film mass air flow error code.

    Upon doing a search it can relate to various things i.e faulty cats, MAF, o2 sensor.....

    can anyone offer any advice on where to start, or would a clean of the MAF fix this??

    He did state that it has been running a bit lumpy for a bit, but never acted like this previously

    The car is a 2001 W210 E200 Kompressor Auto.

    Many thanks in advance

    Sam

    Check the engine wiring loom for oil contamination. Very common issue with those symptoms. A check with a Star and a live data check is in order.

    Also there are some brass nozzles that block up and can cause engine breathing problems. The outcome can be a oil contaminated air mass sensor.
