Got the trio of messages on the way home last night, so I know the Mass air flow sensor is bad(1 week old). I got home and the water came pouring out. I did the modification, cleaned the throttle body, cleaned out the snorkel, and cleaned the MAF. I let them all sit disconnected overnight. I dried out the snorkel, dried the MAF , put it all back together and drove to work, in the high 20s. I got the Stabilitrack /Traction control messages and Check Engine light. I got to work, the MIL code was lean Bank a and B. I am going to Autozone for a new MAF. All indications were no milkshake in the snorkel but I will take it apart when I get to Autozone to swap the MAF. Keeping my fingers crossed here that this will solve all my (our) problems. Update at say 10pm.
Took the snorkel off to replace the MAF, and so far I could not find a hint of a milkshake, or moisture. So far so good, but I will not be celebrating until it passes the cold weather test. The next couple of days should tell. The PCV barb was clogged up good, I had to use a small drill bit to auger out the crud, I was able to see through it when I re installed it. BTW I just passes the 157,000 mile mark, hopefully another 157,000 to go.Online)
Re: Service traction control and stabiltrak and ck engine light
So far the modification is working. I found only one tiny drop of moisture in the snorkel, temperatures in the single digits and teens. I must have damaged the connector lock to the barb when I removed it, and it did pop off once. I got a rough idle and service stabilitrack, traction control, along with a new code, P0106. Manifold absolute pressure/BARO sensor Range/Performance. The tube was loose.
I went to the dealer and picked up a new one. The new one is insulated so I recommend replacing it when you do the Mod. $20.00..
