Need New MAFS-WHERE TO BUY?

OK-I cleaned and cleared it twice-twice it came back as "Check Engine" only to find the fault was "MAFS". I have seen comments about buying replacements on-line for $200. Where do I look? Thanks.

Hey just a side note if you got an 1128 and 1130 code sometimes its the maf but in my last incident it was actually the oil cap it was leaking air for some reason a new cap and reset and it hasnt come back on yet. Other than that which P/N MAF are you looking for? e gas or non egas? What year?

That's extremely interesting. I got the same codes after changing my oil awhile back. Seemed like a coincidence and indeed it didn't seem to come back again. I wonder if the oil cap can trip those codes rather easily.

i bought a new cap soon after i bought the car, replaced with 01 one...those codes came after that, way after
1125 1123 1128 1130

new MAF got everything back to normal, and no more codes...

so in my case it wasn't the cap for sure...

Try Sunset Porsche, they're usually the best price.
