    Hi Guys, I have a Corsa C SXI which I recently had serviced. The engine management light was on and the mechanic said it was due to the Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF) so I had this replaced (with a bosch). However the management light still appears and the car is not running to its full potential...

Further along the road now and there is still a problem with...
