Seems to be a recurring theme on these forums.
Anyway, I've posted a couple of times before RE my faulty MAF sensor.
This is a facelift Micra with the Bosch TB - not the one that can be re-soldered.
The original MAF got so bad, I couldn't get past a few MPH - unplugged it for a short trip...
Note if you want to swap out the sensor for a new one, you'll need a set of Torx TS screwdriver bits. These are shaped like 5-sided stars with a hole in the middle.
Also be wary of the quality of aftermarket sensors...
Wow - identical to the problems I've been having with my X reg Micra.
See my post here:
Long story short. P0171, no power, really struggles on motorway.
Cleaned sensor down air intake (with it still in...
So I got my sensor (eBay: £26) and Torx TS bits (Amazon: £10) through the post, and have successfully got it in place.
Car felt a bit lumpy at lower speeds, but once I got on the motorway... "HELLO! Who put this rocket under the bonnet!?" Well... still only a 998cc but never run this well. (Y)...
It's nice to hear a success story about one of the cheaper sensors available.
I've found a set of the 5-sided Torx screwdriver bits on Amazon for less than £10 delivered, and I guess for the price it should be worth trying one of the cheap eBay ones.
As always will keep you updated :wasntme:
Things took a turn for the worst today. Can't get the car past 20mph or so. Just coughs and splutters at me.
It's definately the MAF sensor as I unplugged it temporarily and it ran like a dream. Plugged it back in and it's back to coughing.
Been trying since I last posted to get...
Posted a while back about a possible dying MAF sensor. Long story short still getting P0171 system too lean and car has no power.
Anyone know where I can source a genuine replacement? I've tried airmassmeters.com but they can't help. There are ones on eBay for ~£35 but aren't...
Car has recently thrown up another code (this code reader of eBay has been a gem)
The first one it threw a few weeks ago (twice in about a week) was:
P0137 - O2 Sensor Circuit Low Volts (Bank 1 Sensor 2) (Lean condition)
The one thrown yesterday was:
P0171 - System Too Lean (Bank 1)...
Bought the reader yesterday, arrived this morning. Andy the product was titled "Diagnostic Scanner Fault Code Reader OBD2 EOBD II U380" and cost me £24. Don't know if I can give the direct link.
The fault code I have is P0137 - O2 Sensor Circuit Low Volts (Bank 1 Sensor 2)
Hi scouse boy. Believe me when I say I've done nothing but Google. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the procedure you stated for the old diagnostic system where the connection is in the fuse box?
Bazz, I'm based in Bradford, Leeds and Huddersfield ish... thanks
