I got it flat bed'd to the dealership (at midnight) and had to take a cab home ($150.00). They called me today, told me that they replaced the mass air flow sensor, and that all will be good. My question is... I cleaned my air filter 2 weeks ago, and mistakenly left the sensor unplugged. It ran fine, but gave me a CEL. Now, I have no CEl, but the car wouldn't run. Will the MAF be the fix?
My bet is when you cleaned the filter you fouled the MAF with the oil. Common problem. Or as it was hanging and bumping around you somehow damaged it.
