Car conked out while driving. Lost power then shut itself off. Check engine light came on along with BIG RED exclamation point! Mechanic diagnosed, not sure how he came to the mass air flow meter, but that's what they are doing now. I had checked the air filter yesterday...was not aware of any debris that could have fallen down there, but am horrified to think I caused the problem!
