Every once in a while my car complains about the mass air flow sensor on the drivers side. Im able to clear the code and go on with life, but it will eventually come back. I bought a new one from the dealer and put it in, but code still comes back after a while. Got a third one just in case and it still comes back. I checked for intake leaks but there are none, and the air filters are brand new.
I can make it actually do it on my short commute, with just light to moderate throttle. About 20 minutes of very light driving like that, the code comes on, and I cant go above 2500rpm. I clear the code and be on my way again but its annoying as hell. If I drive a little harder, with a heavier foot, itll never happen.
