No recourse, no place to complain, no customer service. DONE


Can you recommend different Chevy Astro parts online store? Necessary to meet the requirement: they send abroad.
Preferably via DHL.

Refurbished is used and just means that they looked at it for defects and then tested it, fixed if needed then thrown in a box.

I still use RA, but I use them less and less lately.

I installed this "refurbished" MAF. As I suspected it is damaged. Pressing the gas causes TorquPRO to max. air flow reading at 44g/s. When this value is exceeded, the engine begins to choke and shoot (as in the past with carburetor engines). Back to the original MAF gives readings at 90-130g/sec. The engine doesn't choke and doesn't fire.
