    driving without it won't hurt....it just runs on one 'stored' value....it won't run 100% but if it runs smoothly then it's better with it unplugged..

    Hi! THANKS, was just a bit worried as obvioulsy it should be connected. I'll leave it off and see how it runs until I can get to garage and get new air flow meter. Thanks again!

    my car is using too much fuel lately and got slow pickup under 2k so tried unplugging the mass airflow meter today and i couldn't drive it, there was no turbo kick in at all just felt like a diesel from the 90's.

    dont understand it when so many people say to unplug it to see if its faulty?????? thought the car would feel the same if not better and now got the spanner light everytime i start her up until it clears out of the memory ggrrrrrrrr lol

    Mine was the same, it also has slow pickup under 2k. It's the cdti 150. Maybe it's because of the type of airflow meter, as I understand there are several types with different operating principles.
