Replace only the defective one! They should last the life of the car BY design.

M.B. Doc, Thanks for the reply

Thanx for taking time out of your schedule. (And saving me a few hundred dollars).

Mass Air Sensors....Replace in pairs?

I recently had a couple of issues that ended up being related to a Mass Air Sensor that had gone wonky on an intermittent basis. I had the MAS replaced on the right side (controls the left bank) and the car has settled down. The burning question.... should I also replace the other MAS at this time? I am not sure if the MAS is considered a "wear" item, or if they break down with time and use. The dealer tech indicated that he was actually suprised that the 2 units had gone this far without replacement (93 600sel, 200,000 km). Any guidance, insight will be greatly appreciated.

Thanx in advance

Mithra
