Average Mileage: 115,800 mi (42,000 mi - 185,000 mi)

Verified

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.
