Re: bad mass air flow

A backyard test is to tap it with screwdriver handle while running. If it stalls or changes idle speed, it's bad.

Of course, to do it properly it should be scanned using the proper test equipment.

Re: bad mass air flow

What model are we talking about Goldy? The reason I ask is that some of the 3rd gen camaros had a bad habbit of developing poor connections at the MAF. But before I go off supposing what you have, tell us more about your car and why you suspect the MAF may be ill.
