    I had my mass air flow sensor replaced in april, i was now having the same exact problems again 8 months later, come to find out they said when they replaced my mass air flow sensor the last time that it would not connect into my car so they rewired it and now the wires are fried so they are trying to tell me i have to buy a whole new wiring harness for 1000 bucks, i am a single mom and do not have that kind of money.
