Anyone had the Air flow meter go bad?????
Just got a call from the dealer that the MAF went bad since I have a Joe Z intake and Tanabe cat back exhaust! NUTZO...what a BS excuse.
and of course not covered by the powertrain warranty! $500 dollars to fix. crazy!
The part cost like 100 bucks!
told them to put the car back together, and give it back, i will fix!
Don't know about the Cat back exhaust part, but doesn't Lexus now sell and "i-tuned" equivalent to the JoeZ?
If the JoeZ was a contributing factor, wouldn't the F-Sport part be guilty of the same problem, yet they (the manufacturer) sell it.
That'd be the F-sport intake.
It's a BS excuse though with no basis in reality.
The Joe Z pipe installs downstream of the MAF... and the exhaust is way downstream of the MAF.
Hell if anything the F-sport would be more suspect since it actually changes something upstream of the MAF (the lower airbox)
Clubfoot has a good point though... might wanna pull the MAF off and clean it up with some electronics cleaner from autozone for $5 before throwing a new MAF at it.
