The P0101 code may be related to many other things aside from the mass air flow sensor such as: intake air leaks, dirty mass air filter, an open or shorted MAF sensor harness, or a poor connection involved with the MAF. If you want to have a definitive repair on this, a certified professional from YourMechanic can throughly pinpoint the cause of the code and perform appropriate repairs.
