Report: Check Engine Light and Lack of Power Due to Failed Mass Air Flow Sensor
Lexus IS300 Problem
Engine Affected: 3.0L 6 Cylinder
Average Mileage: 105,500 mi (42,000 mi - 185,000 mi)
The Check Engine Light may illuminate because the mass air flow sensor sends incorrect information to the engine control computer. This can cause a loss of power on acceleration. A failed mass air flow sensor will require replacement.

Periodically cleaning out the MAF sensor with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol helps greatly with this issue. MAF's can be found online for a reasonable price as well, if needed.
