Lexus IS300 Check Engine Light and Lack of Power Due to Failed Mass Air Flow Sensor

(18 reports)

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.

Car surges forward and it feels like the transmission is in neutral when you're gliding down the highway and it picks up again with a hiccup sensation creating a momentary stall -

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. -
