The MAF sensor is not a costly part of the vehicles, but it is not a simple part of the Mercedes Sprinter Vito Start engine repair. The simple fact is that this sensor will fail to detect very small quantities of unburned fuel. Without it, your fuel injection will be off and will supply far more fuel than required, ruining your engine. This, in turn, is what will cause the P0101 fault code to be triggered.
It's essential that you do your best to prevent a bad MAF sensor, as it can cause automatic transmission problems by changing the shifting pattern. It can also lead to a fault in your car's engine computer not recognising your correct fuel level, which is why you may find your Check or Service Engine light starts blinking.
