Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Make sure the sensor was plugged in properly and that no air hose leaks or air intake leaks are found as this can cause this fault here.If this is checked and found to be o.k. it is very possible that this fault is with the new mass air flow sensor itself as it can be faulty out of the box with it needing replaced again under parts warranty at no cost to you from the facility you purchased it from.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
