We have 2011 Juke and I am fighting with the MAF code I have changed the sensor 2x and cleaned it a dozen or more times I can not find a leak in the system! Any help would be great thanks

P0101 could be caused by a lot of things. Vacuum/boost leak, exhaust leak, other sensor (AFR or O2) is reading bad, or could be a bad MAF sensor but that is rare. Others here have had problems with non-OEM MAF sensors and if they didn’t have any leaks, then replacing the MAF with an OEM one was the only fix. Typically though, a P0101 is not a bad MAF sensor. Do a search for P0101 here on the forums. I know I have explained in depth the setting criteria for the code. What it really means is the engine already knows how much air should be metered in because it calculated it from the other sensors and just uses the MAF as a verification. If that calculation is wrong, the ECU will say the MAF is bad, but really it isn’t the MAF.

I’d get to a mechanic and have them do a full intake leak test with a smoke machine. You may have a stuck PCV valve or a leaky valve cover, divert valve, wastegate actuator, gasket on any number of pipes, hose clamp, split in a hose, etc. all of these are places air can escape or enter the system and throw readings off. If you’re absolutely sure you have no vacuum or boost leaks, go get an OEM MAF and also have Nissan make sure your ECU is up to date. There have been issues where the sensor tolerance programmed in the ECU was tighter than it should have been and an ECU update corrects that sensor value range.

Not sure if the Non OEM MAF is any good. You could get an OEM MAF too.
