    New Problem

    Today when i pulled away from a junction the car jumped really badly and the service light and traction controll light came on, just been upto my uncles garage and the ODB says it the mass air flow sensor so this is getting replaced, the thing is also the car wont idle at all it just dies, would this be cause by the air flow sensor?

    Thanks for any help

    Yeah it's a common fault on the let, my old one went 6 month after replacing it.£75 from ebay or £100 from local dealer you get a 1 year warranty but this is void if you have any modifications to the air circulation i.e. induction kit.
