    Unhappy Mass Airflow Sensor....

    Driving Home from work today my engine cut out and the check engine light came on. My A.P. shows mass air circuit low input. so I removed it attempted to clean it and noticed that there's a slight rattle inside. I can't find one in an auto part store and the dealer is asking for $260. I used to be a counterman for auto wholesalers and from what I remember maf's sold for under $100. I've searched the web and the cheapest used is $50, being that it's out of state of course I don't dare. but remans through A1 and Delco are still over $200 + core. CAN ANYONE HELP????

    Two thoughts:

    People wreck Imprezas every day. Usually the MAF sensor survives.

    Also, the sensor itself reminds me a lot of the sensor on turbo Celica motors. See if you can cross reference the part number; that'll give you two pools of bad driving to draw from for used parts, and two dealer networks for new parts (if and ONLY if it's true).

    I really have to question how it has a rattle inside. They are a very simple part and there's really nothing that can break loose and rattle. But I'll trust you that something is rattling. Have you contacted a junk yard? $200+ is about right for the part new. I'm not sure what cars you're familiar with that have <$100 MAFs but every high performance car I know of runs $200-300 for the MAF.
