    Ps anyone used Halfords maf cleaner? I hear its good stuff, will it do any harm cleaning / spraying the maf sensor

    And does anyone recommend how to clean the throttle body? Is it carb cleaner?

    Can you advise pls

    This might be the cheaper soulution. The parts may just need a decent clean as its done 100k now

    Halfords don't have an actual maf cleaner, they have electrical contact cleaner which will work fine. I've never cleaned the throttle body but I remember my dad use to clean my mums throttle body with carb cleaner on a Volvo she had

    Cool - going to try cheap fixes before costly ones. I shall get the electric stuff from Halfords and see how it goes. I hear from a lot of forums CRC MAF cleaner is recommended too, Can it have issues after cleaning on idle, slight hesitant at the moment with some horror stories not working from them but some are good and worked well. Car seems ok on idle, very very slight judder now and again then seems to self adapt.

    I may be wrong, but I think crc maf cleaner isn't available to buy in the uk, only the us...don't hold me to that though

    CRC can get over Ebay. Light's popped up again, idle funny then slight juddering at standstill and day later running smooth, slight hesitation on acceleration and light up again.

    Greatest fear is, replace MAF and it not be the MAF.

    What more tests can I do prior to replacing? Local Garage says MAF on test is running just over tolerances.

    What do you advise

    PS It passed its MOT yesterday, Indicator light bulbs only on advice!

    Unplug the maf, then take your car for a drive, if unplugging it cures your problem, the chances are its the maf at fault

    I think they have done this already as they say its MAF related, from systems checks and from the computer checks made.
