Another thing discovered today when cleaning the MAF, the idiot at the last garage not only overfilled the oil, it looks like he had a go at cleaning the MAF and didn't install it correctly causing unmetered air to enter the system or metered air to escape. Whoever it was put the O ring on the MAF and screwed it in place instead of installing the O ring inside the tabs of the airbox housing and then inserting it into the housing. Thankfully its been cleaned with MAF spray (was pretty dirty on the metal mesh screen) and inserted correctly now so i will see if that makes any difference.
This is exactly the reason i do my own servicing, at least i know its done correctly!
Oil level hasn't changed since draining the oil which is positive at least! New o2 sensor ordered and will be fitted tomorrow.
