okay thanks for the tip
On the chance that Noodles sees this I want to report that I took the car into a MB dealer and they retested and their report to me says "code P2086-002 stored for self adaptation in mass airflow sensor" and they say "if CEL comes back on MAF needs replacing". Light DID come back on. Apparently no code 0170 and 0173 as before.
My mechanic says it was a genuine MB MAF he used but I note on it a sticker which indicates it is a remanufactured part.
So the dealer wants me to replace the MAF before doing anything else. What I want to know is ...what does that code mean and if it's NOT the MAF what else could it be?
Should I buy another MAF and make sure it's genuine and have it installed?
Also, how can I transfer this thread to the W210 forum?
