After a while of searching about powerloss in the 1.8tddi and having the cylinder heads rebuilt (which helped!) i came across a site which said to unplug the MAF sensor to see if theres a difference. While having the maf unplugged my focus pulled a little better, strange that it would work better without it! Definite increase in power. Gonna look into getting a new MAF but was wondering if theres anyway to clean it up, or if its dead once its gone. Anyone know about this?

Thanks!

my old passat was bad for the mafs going to be honest cleaning rarely works for long ide definately get a new maf theyre easy to fit not sure if the fault code clears itself though

The airflow sensor on my TDDi looks nothing like that.
