    MAF sensor 2003 wrx with EJ205 engine

    Hi out there,
    In a previous thread which I posted regarding car running ok but down on power (The power boost from the turbo seems to be missing-the kick you should normally get above 3500 RPM) be I was advised to remove MAF sensor and clean it with electrical contact cleaner which I have now done. this didnt make any difference. If the engine is idling and I remove the electrical connector to the MAF sensor the engine will splutter for an instant and then resume idling normally. Is this indicating a faulty MAF sensor. Also when I do this the engine warning light illuminates and then resets after 3 start ups. If it is the sensor that is faulty and I replace it will the engine on board diagnostics need to be reset?

    All your doing is causing the car to switch to a failsafe fueling table that uses the MAP sensor as the air measurement device. There is a ton of things that could be the issue.

    Go to an auto parts store and get the code read.

    The CEL is due to him unhooking the MAF while the car is running.
