    Might be a stupid question (but ive done it) Have you plugged the maf sensor back in?
    Also People seem to be 50/50 on cleaning the Maf....What did you use to clean it? I know there is a cleaner out there just aimed at maf sensors though....

    I was told not to use carb/brake cleaner on the maf as its super sensitive. Was told there is a specific cleaner that halfords stock or electrical contact cleaner from maplins as second choice. They advised against the carb cleaner as it doesnt dry instantly and can leave a residue, but then a few people have said dont touch at all and buy new but at £75+ a £8 can of cleaner sounds better lol.......But its fine to use on your egr buddy.
