Volvo S60 Check Engine Light Due to Failed MAF Sensor

(14 reports)

The MAF sensors are prone to failing and turning on the Check Engine Light.

Check engine light came on 4 months ago followed by "stalling/jumping" symptoms", diagnosed as MAF Sensor, we bought a new one and replaced it. Weeks later, same thing. Took to dealership again, they said the engine/computer should have been reset after putting in MAFS, reset it. A few weeks later, same thing, Volvo said it was a bad MAF Sensor again. Bought a new one through Volvo, replaced, and now check engine light on again after one week and same symptoms occurring. -
MAF Sensor causes Check Engine Light to come on intermitently -
Hard to start and very rough idle until rolling about 10 MPH. Prone to stalling. Trouble code for MAF and fuel balance right bank (didn't know I had a right bank!). Replaced MAF and had code cleared. No problems for 24 hours. Same symptoms and MAF code reappeared. Replaced MAF again (warranty). Less than 24 hours and ten miles later, same issue, same code. Help!!! FIXED: After the third MAF, I found a good Volvo mechanic (not at the dealership). It was a combination of a dirty throttle body and a cracked vacuum line. $395 (not including the MAF which was actually good)later it runs like a charm. 10,000 miles, no problem. Two other independent Volvo mechanics also said it was probably a dirty/bad throttle body and/or vacuum, not the MAF. -
Car started to be very noisy when passing over bumps or minor imperfections in the road. Initially I assumed this to be tire related. When tires were subsequently replaced the problem continued. -
Same problem -
Just had a tech check out why my "check engine light" came on, he said it was a faulty MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor). Had it replaced for around $300 bucks for an OEM Volvo Sensor. -
