wtf is wrong with my car?!

back in november i was having problems with the car feeling bogged down. i took it to toyota and they said bad MAF. so they replaced it. well about a week ago it was doing it again, except this time it wouldnt stay started at all. so i assumed it was a different problem. nope. i disconnected the MAF and it stays started. WTF! any ideas?

hmmm if you have any friends with celicas perhaps you can try another maf. if you removed it and the car started then thats gotta be the problem.

it's possible that ther emay be a short somewhere causing the maf to die.

my guess is that its a short. but who knows could be good old fashioned bad luck.

There's your problem. AEM Intakes bog all the time in the low rpms. Keep your airbox, do blue-bombers bog-free CAI mod, or wait for a TPR CAI.
