here is the question, the map is definatly shot, but the maf was giving me some good readings and not so much so the other times

could i replace the map sensor and see if that is fine then get a maf if it isn't or should i just break down and do both at the same time?

any help would be appretiated

i personally would replace the map and then check before I spent unneccessarily

what about just cleaning it?

cleaning never hurts, unelss you dont know what you are doing.

make sure you use an acceptable solvent for sensors. some cleaners can leave a residue that will distort readings, or damage the sensor itself.

yes and make sure you let it dry long enough. even after you think it is dry, leave it a few hours longer

What's vagcom say about both? I had a MAP go on me a few months ago, the dealer wanted like $145 for it but I found an S4 one used for $50.
