Default Ebay Motors MAF sensor question?

OK as you all know I messed my mass air flow sensor up on Memorial day. Replaced with a used one that turned out to be no good, got it tested. Flush...that's the sound of my money going down the toilet, but live and learn. Don't buy MAF sensors from the Overland Chop shop. So anyway, has anyone checked out Ebay motors. There is a company called airtech that is selling brand new Land Rover mass air flow meters for $119!! Anyone buy from this company? Are they any good? They only have two feedbacks, but they are positive. I sent them some questions and am waiting to hear back from them. In the meantime figured I would post this and see if anyone has bought anything from them.

Thanks
Blake

airflowtech is their name.

Probably too good to be true.

Overland usually is pretty good. Did they tell you they would not replace it? If so, post it over on Dweb. Dwebbers usually have a way of making a company make things right.

Sorry it's a 97 D1. Price of an oem LR mass air flow is about $600! So that is why I am wondering about their $119 price. I wonder if that is something they just make themselves, or do they buy direct from whoever manufactures the maf sensors for LR and sell them cheap under their name. They haven't responded to my questions yet. Just wondering if anyone has any experiance dealing with them, cause I don't want to flush any more money down the drain. If they are legit, what a savings!

I haven't had any experience with them, sounds too good to be true. If you do hear from them, you need to verify they have been reconditioned and have a warranty of some sort.
Let us know what you hear.

Just went on their web site, that is not the MAF for a D1, that is why the price is so low.
What are the codes you are getting and how is the truck running?

Hello from Adam in NYC.

Do you have the old MAF sensor still?

If so, there are two avenues to explore. Disassemble the part and do a swapout of the hotwire filament that brooke.

Or you can search around. I remember someone did a dissembly and rebuild of the MAF sensor.

The only thing that I notice that breaks is either the sesnor gets corroded and/or the heating filament finally breaks open.

There are also a few companies that specialise and rebuilding one. You got two?

Here is some light reading : http://www.popularmechanics.com/auto...c/3297276.html

Whats up?

Addition: found this in Craigslist: But it is for a D2, wonder if it is compatible ? http://atlanta.craigslist.org/pts/200500790.html

Have you contacted Car Cannibal, they are good.

Here is what the dealer found:

Performed T4 diagnosis and found faults P1177 and P1179 FMFR and AMFR correction at its max negative value--Performed inspection of intake boot and air filter and also for vaccuum leaks--none found-- performed fuel pressure test and found acceptable pressure and also tested max output of fuel pump and it passed--monitered MAF through real time and found it would drop out of spec at idle intermittently and also at 5000rpm( ) it read 130HG--it should be 180
