Q: I recently had my throttle body cleaned and an induction service, now I have a bad mass air flow sensor?!

asked by on

In November I paid 900.00to get my throttle body cleaned and an induction service, transmission flush, new battery and a cooling system service...now today my car is cutting off and the dealer says I need a mass airflow sensor, to the tube of $400. Is it worth fixing with 105,000 miles? Could the recent throttle body and induction cleaning have caused the air flow sensor problem?

My car has 105000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
