Frequently Asked Questions Air mass meter information and installation video: How do I know that my mass airflow sensor is faulty?

The vehicle indicates errors such as erratic engine operation, reduced performance, increased petrol consumption and engine cutout. Other causes may be possible why an intact mass airflow sensor may indicate wrong signals:

  • Defect exhaust gas recirculation valves
  • Leakages in the induction tract
  • Blocked air intake filters
  • Faulty tank ventilation valves among other things.

Only car garages are capable of conducting distinct fault diagnoses and reading out the error messages.

Why is my mass airflow sensor faulty?

Mass airflow sensors are extremely sensitive replacement parts. The hot film meter inside the mass airflow sensor is very susceptible and can be easily contaminated by dirty and oil. This may be due to different reasons. Environmental conditions (rain, splash water...), sand, dust, road salt, vibrations, oil and so on affect the efficient readings of the mass airflow sensor. Oil particles from oil covered sports air filters may damage the sensor. A faulty or damaged mass airflow sensor sends the wrong input signal to the electronic control unit which in turn wrongly activates other components. Regularly replacing the air filters helps to extend the durability of the mass airflow sensor.

Why does my car need a mass airflow sensor?

The mass airflow sensor measures the air mass, which flows through the air filter to the engine. The data is then sent to the control unit in order to specify the injection rate of the fuel. The combustion engine requires 14,7 kg of air for the optimal combustion of 1kg of fuel. In order to regulate the correct proportion of fuel and air in any operational condition, the engine control unit requires the exact information concerning the intake of the air mass. The mass airflow sensor plays an integral part in the reduction of exhaust and air supply.

What does a mass airflow sensor consist of?

A mass airflow sensor consists of a case which is positioned between the air filter and air pipe. The sensor is either screwed or firmly attached inside the case. The sensor in turn includes a hot film meter and electronics. The sensor measures the air which flows to the engine through the air filter and sends the data to the control unit.

Is it sufficient to use cleaner of the breaks or other cleaning agents to clean the mass airflow sensor?

The sensor membrane may be severely damaged by the clean up. Never apply compressed air as this may also damage the sensor.

Is there a difference between air volume sensor and mass airflow sensor?

No. Air volume sensors and mass airflow sensors refer to the same item. Other terms are hot film meter, HFM, airflow sensor, MAF or MAFS.

Why is it recommendable to fit a hot film meter instead of a hot wire sensor?

One distinguishes usually between hot film meters (HFM) and hot wire sensors. The hot film meter is not as sensitive as the hot wire sensor. Deposits accumulate often on the hot wire which affects a correct reading. Our offered product range specialises solely on hot film meter sensors.

Why are the prices at MAF Service GmbH more favourable than at other vendors?

Unlike other vendors, we have specialised exclusively on mass airflow sensors and offer these for selected car models only. This enables us to purchase larger quantities and allows us to keep reduced storage and administrative expenditures, which benefits our customers.

However, other brands have no bearing on the quality of our products. Our mass airflow sensors are subject to regular quality controls, so we can deliver the best in quality to our customers.

Is it sufficient if I exchange just the sensor or do I have to replace the entire case?

In cases where the mass airflow sensors are screwed to the case, you should definitely replace the entire mass airflow sensor. Otherwise, according to manufacturers, the sensor could be placed in

the wrong measurement position, in addition to the old dirty case, and affect the readings. Hence, the guarantee would expire if the sensor was removed from the case.

What do I have to pay attention to when fitting a new mass airflow sensor?

We recommend that you exchange the air filter before you fit the new mass airflow sensor! A grubby or inferior air filer is often the cause for damages of the mass airflow sensor. The air-filter-hous

ing should be exhausted - not brushed out.

A faultless air filter increases the efficiency and durability of the mass airflow sensor. The air filter should be replaced around every 25,000 km.

Please pay attention to the mounting direction. The arrow on the case indicates the direction of the air flow (from the mass airflow sensor to the engine).

The error memory does not have to be erased on purpose. It may be that your control unit resets the error memory only after a 100km.

MAF, hotfilm sensor, HFM, air flow meter sensor, mass airflow meter and others are all synonyms for airflow meter. Americans mostly call it MAF which stands for mass flow meter or sensor, Europeans prefer calling it airflow meter. AFM is just the abbreviation for airflow meter. Hotfilm sensors are airflow meters that use the hotfilm technology, which is more exact than the old hotwire technology.
