Thanked 28 Times in 20 Posts
I disconnected the wiring connection as you suggested and took the car for a run around town.
The motor struggled to run and accelerate, but it reved right out to 5.5 rpm
So you are probably correct it is the MAF.
When i disconnected the wiring i found two of the wires in the loom had the insulation worn away by the pulley next to the MAF on the engine, has a radiator hose rub through a couple of months age as well.
I am going to fix the wiring and give the MAF a good clean up as well. it may only be the wiring shorting out i hope.
I really appreciate the help thanks.
