1999 Forester S Turbo 5MT
My new genuine Subaru MAF arrived and I fitted it this morning. I bought a pattern part about six weeks ago for £45 on fleabay and there was no difference between it and the old one. Lesson learned! With the new MAF and 200 miles up today, it's a different car, I can't believe changing one sensor could rectify so much trouble. Jerkiness on the over run, especially around town, flat spots, hesitation, erratic/uneven idle and rough power delivery, all gone. I filled the tank this morning and at this time I reckon the needle at 200miles today is in the same position as about 160/170 normally - my usual average is 28mpg mixed driving. I get some of my Parts from these guys Japanese Import Car Parts. The MAF on this site was £89 and I have seen this particular model of Subaru MAF (00 on is different and more expensive) elsewhere for twice that. Most of the items they sell are Genuine Subaru and overall their prices and stock are pretty good I think. I also have a genuine TPS en route, lets see what that does. This has been driving me around the bend for a while now so I'm a happy bunny.
