Check Engine Light and Lack of Power Due to Failed Mass Air Flow Sensor on Lexus ES300

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.

Failed Mass air flow sensor. Lack of power on accelerating. Took it to a fly by night shop and it was there 3 weeks. So solution. I had it towed to a Lexus dealer and it was fixed in 2 days. Very expensive to fix. $1,400.
