What is the air filter like ,i change mine annually regardless of mileage.Also i have cleaned Air flow temperature and flow sensor from time to time.This is located in the air filter outlet.It hastamper-proofscrews but these can be undone by inserting small screwdriver in head one side of tit in middle and gripping it with mole grips to turn.Use quickevaporatingelectrical aerosol spray to spray in flow sensor,and also spray smalltemperaturesensor,this gets a brownish film across it which allows tracking.The first time i done it after suggestion from my son who is a service manager,i could not believe the difference it made.
