Q: Issues with MAF sensor and P010B code

asked by on May 24, 2016

Hello. My car has MAF sensor issues and the P010B code. I had the MAF cleaned but the issue persists. I had a K&N air filter for years but I had it replaced as the MAF issues appeared while I had that air filter in my car and it was worn out. Now I have the OEM air filter. But, I still have problems with MAF. What should I do?

The vehicle’s Engine Control Module (ECM) may need reprogramming, as to a technical bulletin ITB09-028 dated June 3, 2009. The reprogramming by the dealer will be needed to try and see if the code goes away, if not, further diagnosis will be needed. Your sensor may need to be replaced on Bank 2. Sometimes cleaning them cannot fix all the oil that gets on the sensor from the aftermarket oil filters, which causes shorted sensor wires.
