Mass Airflow Sensor

Recommended Posts

Hi all, Firstly I'm a first time Toyota owner and i'm all the way down here in Jamaica. I have a 2006 Avensis 1AZ-FE 2.0 16 valve vvt-i. I'm coming from a Honda fit, so i'm fuel conscious and i realize that the vehicle was consuming fuel a lot (360 km per full tank). Thus, i made a scan and it showed that the Mass Airflow Sensor was faulty. Problem is, not even Toyota Jamaica dealers here in the country has the item in stock, but i've found it on ebay.uk: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2003-02-07-TOYOTA-AVENSIS-1-8-VVT-1-AIR-FLOW-METER-MB197400-3010-FREE-P-P-/160889458727?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item2575c25027.

Also i found another link for the item on ebay in Australia, which also gives alternatives: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toyota-Lexus-MAF-AFM-Corolla-Hilux-Prado-22204-22010-197400-2030-air-flow-meter-/300702797816, what i would really like to know if i can substitute the original (first link) for an alternative (second link), and if yes, if this will affect the air to fuel ratio?

You said that the dealers don't have it in stock; can they order one for you?

Given the difference in prices I would be tempted to see what the dealers can do first. I don't understand why the one from Australia is so much more expensive than the other one.

You could send a private message to Parts King from this forum and see if he can help.

Have you tried cleaning the maf sensor with electrical contact cleaner.

examples:

Druid boy: 'I don't understand why the one from Australia is so much more expensive than the other one.'

one of the reasons is that the one from Australia is brand new and the one in the UK is used. :thumbsup:

This may help:
