    Thumbs up Changed my MAF today so all i can do is wait i guess

    Like it says really ive changed my MAF back to my old Bosch one hoping that it nows stops going into limp mode i drove the car for around 10miles before coming to work this afternoon and it didnt go into limp mode so im hoping it wont go into it again i guess i'll just have to wait and see.

    But i know me im not that lucky lol

    When you say you changed back to your old bosch one does that meen you had replaced the one youve now put back in with a new one?

    It wasnt an ebay one was it because they are rubbish and aint worth a penny.

    The fault code was p0100

    I got told months ago it was the MAF so brought a new one then it was still doing it and joined here and read about split pipes which i found a split in the boost pipe so changed that then the car was still going into limp mode and that code was coming up and ive read on here that people say that Bosch MAF are best and my new one isnt a Bosch one so just thought id try swapping my old one back onto the car seeing as there was a split in the boost pipe in the first place when i got told to buy a new MAF.

    I thought it wouldnt cause much harm? (but im probs wrong about that to lol)

    If all this is making any sense lol
