My car is eating AFM's. By that I mean that everytime I replace it, at random before doing about 200 miles its almost guaranteed to blow.
The symptoms are the same, the Traction Control light comes on solidly and then the Emissions light flickers on and off a few times. When I stop and start the engine the lights go out but then gradually over the next few weeks / months the car starts running rough.
I went through about 5 of them last year! It would have been more but each time it blew I just left it for a while without replacing it.
The car is:
Are there any other options other than keep replacing them on a regular basis? Could my ECU be broken? I've looked at the VXR 80mm AFM route but it seems a very expensive option as I've got to buy the thing first then get the car remapped to use it.
