Howdy there, I just have a quick question. I went to auto zone today, no check engine light or anything however I make a force of habit to have them run a scan tool.
They run a check- code P0101 MAF failure- I have in the last month replaced the MAF and again, no CEL so I didnt think anything of it but the code was still coming up.
The guy at auto zone (not even asking first) cleared the code and said all set- No biggie, so I start my car and leave- i feel a woosh of power..... my car has been sluggish as of late so I was surprised.
My question, clearing a DTC effect your cars performance?
Example- improper readings from MAF puts the car in limp mode- clear the code back to full power? Maybe like a "safe mode" on cpu's?
