My 1996 (that I just got 2 weeks ago) had a MAF fail. The failure caused the car to start stalling and turned on the engine light. I took the car to the dealer and the OBD2 system reported a MAF failure. To my Suprise I was handed a Bill for $573.00!!! Any one else pay this much? I think I was Robbed.

Oh wow at least they cooked you breakfast right? LOL :s

Arent those supposed to be around the same price as MAF sensors? Around the 250-300 margin?

WELL YES, Thats exactly it I think. The sensor is just a simple bolt on. But Yes they said they had to Test the wiring and Main Computer because the reading of voltage they were getting when testing the MAF circuit was wanky. They at one point thought the OBD2 computer the finned silver box was bad as well. I wish It would have been, They told me the computer carries a 8 year 80K mile full warranty.

I checked a Parts on line source and a NEW GM MAF indeed costs $425.00!!! It seems that the 1996 MAF is the most expensive of all the model years.

umm

the MAF on my 85' cost me $199.99 in my Eckler's and it says it doens't include core charge

they don't sell a MAF on 96's, i think its cuase 96's have MAT's and not MAF's

its just two differant types of sensors..

newer corvettes like yours,, 92 to 96 uses two sensors to tell the engine about air flow, MAT and umm something else that is infront of the intake


where 84 to 91 sues one sensor int he intake tube liek thing,,,called the MAF
