Sketchy MAF connector

    Been having an issue on and off for long time. My car will occasionally go into the limp mode but by wiggling the connector it usually sorts itself out. Now to get it to run decent I have to have the connector plugged in crooked as shown.
    All the pins look ok but a few years ago we played with the insides of the MAF because some wires were messed up. We probably did a janky repair but it cured the car at the time.

    Thanx for all your help...one of the ratsun guys suggested I tighten the connector pins slightly and it's running fine now .. Just used a tiny screwdriver to push it closed better

    Fired right up and hopefully cures my intermittent stumbles.
