Model Years Affected: 2001, 2002


The mass air flow (MAF) sensor tends to fail. The engine air filter should be replaced when the mass air flow sensor is replaced; a dirty filter can allow debris to damage the new sensor.

    My 2001 CLK55 AMG was going through a MAF sensor every six months...
    Symptoms are: Greatly reduced fuel mileage, and sluggish performance.
    Usually, no DTC / trouble codes are set however.
    Fortunately, MAF sensors can be bought new with a one year warranty from merchants on EBAY for around $50 for aftermarket, and up to $160 for OEM / Bosch.
    This same part can cost $350 from the Mercedes dealer....!!!!!!!!!!
    The last ebay MAF sensor I installed has now made it over a year with no issues.
