    Hi Folks.

    Merc newbie here, picking up a e220 cdi (92k) for my mrs this week once it's been put through mot.

    There is a intermittent fault with the MAF I was told sometimes its lack really power, I noticed this on the motorway on a test drive but then stopped and started again and it was fine?

    Whats the best way to find out if it's the maf, can I just unplug it, and what would I be looking for in symptoms?

    Cheers
    Paul

    Get it plugged in. As you are in Horndean I can do it for you! I think you are the only member on here that lives here!

    No charge too for plugging it in.
