    Thanks mate!

    Going to get a new air filter and give the maf a clean.

    The filter is grubby as so I'm hoping it will help, at the worst it will eliminate it!

    Re: MAF Cleaner

    I would use isopropyl alcohol personally that stuff from halfords may leave a thin film on the maf wire

    Strangely there isn't a list of ingredients but google says its based off Isopropanol?

    Yeah I saw that but Maplin is a right trek so I thought I'd try the halfords stuff.

    MAF Cleaner

    I've used the Maplin one. Seemed to work quite well a few months ago. However, since cleaning and reoiling my panel filter recently, I suspect the MAF has got oil on it so I just bought a new MAF.
