Delphi MAF Sensor Review

Thought I would post a review on here about the mass air flow sensors available for our cars. When I researched a replacement MAF for my L98 GTA I could not find recent info and after having a bad experience with a new Silver streak MAF from advance auto I went with my mechanics advice and got a new Delphi MAF from rock auto. The price was very good (under $150 with shipping) and could not be beat. The part came in excellent packaging that showed quality and the part looked near exact to the original Bosch. The only difference was inside where it did not match the original design. I was worried the sensor would not work properly and throw a code but I was wrong. Installation was very easy and just remember to disconnect the battery before install. The new MAF fixed my problem and it seems the car runs better as well. Overall I highly recommended the Delphi MAF as replacement.

Thanks for posting. My car is storing code 33 (MAF) and I am just beginning to research this and I find post only TWO days old!

Re: Delphi MAF Sensor Review

Glad you found this useful, after scouring the forum for awhile looking for info on replacement MAFs I couldnít find much that was current. Hopefully this post saves other people time and money.

Re: Delphi MAF Sensor Review

I second this! Put my new Delphi in the other night and it instantly cleared my code and made a huge difference in how the car runs. Quality feels good, came well packaged, and the price was more than right. Definitely would recommend

Re: Delphi MAF Sensor Review

Does the Delphi have the burn off wire in it? Or is it the circuit board type?

Re: Delphi MAF Sensor Review

Iím not a 100% sure but it looked like a board to me which was why I was initially concerned but itís been working out great. The style inside was definitely different than the original Bosch.

Re: Delphi MAF Sensor Review

What were the symptoms you were getting prior to the MAF replacement?

Re: Delphi MAF Sensor Review

My symptoms were not the typical stuff for a bad MAF, so what mine was doing once the car was hot and you shut it down the old sensor would get heat soaked and when you went to restart the hot engine it would tell the computer to dump fuel. When cold the car was fine. Car would smell rich and the exhaust would be smoky. New MAF solved it, it took my mechanic a bit to figure it out with the help of the old brick scan tool.

Re: Delphi MAF Sensor Review

Glad it helped you, I am replacing mine with the Delphi, it does look to be the Doll Thick film design as opposed to the Bosch Burn Off.
