We specialist in maf sensors / mass airflow / air flow sensors / afm meters
What part do I need?
Part numbers are normally stamped on the outside housing of the unit or on the top of the unit. If you find “PBT-30” stamped on the housing, note that it is the reference for the type of plastic used in manufacturing and not the part number itself. If in doubt whatsapp us and we will confirm which part you require from your vehicle registration number or vehicle details (if you are from outside of the SA).

Mass Air Flow Meter Information
The Mass Air Flow Meter is the device used in many fuel injected engines to measure the amount of air entering the engine so the onboard computer (ECU) can calculate the correct air/fuel mixture ratio to enter the combustion chambers. Located ahead of the throttle body, after the air filter, the MAF sensor uses a heated wire or filament/film to measure the air flow.
Air Flow Meters are also known as:
‘Air Mass Meter’
‘Air Mass Sensor’
‘Mass Air Flow Sensor’
‘Air Flow Meter’
‘Air Mass Meter’
Faulty Mass Air Flow Meter Symptoms:
Unsteady Idle AKA “hunting” (car revving up by around 1000rpm itself then dropping back down
Reduced drivability, cutting out when the engine speed drops. e.g. approaching bends
Loss of power, turbo lag on turbo applications
Excessive black smoke on diesel applications
Reduced fuel economy and lumpy running
Can feel like you’re hitting a rev limiter too early
Typically air flow sensors can go faulty every 40,000 miles,this is due them getting clogged up with dirt within the induction system. Using general cleaning equipment such as Carburettor and throttle body cleaner for maintenance will shorten the life of the sensor is only a temporary fix and is not a long term solution. It can in some cases cause more damage.
