Hello there, thank you for asking about your 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse. The code you are getting is for a problem with the mass air flow sensor circuit. This does not mean replace the sensor. The code has a pinpoint test to follow that will test the sensor and sensor wiring and the engine computer circuit. Once the test is done then it may call for replacing the mass air sensor, which a technician from YourMechanic can do at your home or office.
