could be a couple of things. If your CAI has an oiled filter it could contaminate the MAF element, or if the CAI pipe was hot in the engine bay and heated up the MAF housing itself the silicon used to insulate the hotwire element up inside the MAF could melt and drip down also contaminating the MAF. You're best to install your stock intake before going back to toyota to make a warranty claim...

cant remember, probably a couple of hundred new. Subaru charge ~$800 for the denso maf which is similar.

Could expect to pay ~$50-100 for one second hand.

So what sort of filter do you use?

ok... take some advice from someone that has been battling the maf sensor problem for months..... replace it!

I have been putting up with the car just stopping randomly for months, and finally the other day it stopped and wouldnt go again... so its time for a new sensor.... luckily my other half is a mechanic and can get an after market one for about $250.00 so that is going into the car today.

Be aware that its from the oil on the pod getting on the sensor and the oil heating up and "cooking" the sensor. I have been cleaning my sensor with electrical contact cleaner every time it plays up and it usually is good for another couple of months.... but the sensor is dead now and the car will only run with the sensor unplugged.... ( i only have to drive 3km's to work) :)

i was beginning to think that my car was cursed and the random stopping thing was just the universe messing with me

The only question I have to ask you is

Does the problem happen very frequently at all??

I've had my sportivo shut down on me on the way home before, while still in motion. Just started back up and off I went.

Problem never occurred again, so don't worry too much.

Now if its a problem that happens frequently then thats different.
