I would recommend first cleaning the MAF with contact cleaner as this may just be a dirty sensor. If this does not correct the problem, I would then suggest replacing. If you would like assistance with replacing the mass airflow sensor, consider YourMechanic; a certified technician can be dispatched to your home or office to complete this repair.
