    The mass air flow sensor on my truck has at least 103k miles on it. After p0171's I just clean it and all is good. I put an AFE pro dry S filter in the truck and it's worked without probs for months. Now I am getting another p0171. Cleared the code and it came back very quickly. Took the maf out, cleaned it and it lasted a few miles shy of a whole tank. I'm wondering if I should just replace the thing. Stealership wants $141. After market ones are around $75. Anyone have any experience with after market mass air flow sensors?

    I have the same code. Changed the MAF and it lasted about a month or two, then came back on.

    I heard it could also be the bank 1 pre cat o2 sensor but i changed that one in the winter. Now the CEL comes on and off whenever it feels.

    I havent looked into aftermarket MAF sensors. Are you sure its the one causing the code?

    I'm not a hundred percent sure it's the maf. However, I'm the second owner of the truck and I can tell it's been messed with before. I feel like if it was a problem before and is still a problem now, it might be worth it to just replace the thing...

    Does anybody have any experience with the Jet Powr-Flo Mass Air Flow Sensor? I have a 2005 Taco with an AFE Stage II CAI with the Pro Dry S filter. Also, don't know if it matters or not but I have a throttle body spacer and Flowmaster exhaust. I am thinking about replacing the stock MAF with the Jet. Will I gain anything by doing this or is it just a waste of money? The thing sells for $135.
