      It's actually a type of hydraulic oil. Get some actual CHF11 or CHF202 (I've seen it in more and more auto parts stores, even the chain stores), and not anything else that might be labeled "power...

      No, I got a P0441 code Tuesday evening, which is incorrect purge flow. First time I ever saw that one, but I should've expected it after the car was so hard to start after the fillup.

      My code kept popping up at idle as well, about once or twice a week. I'd searched all over for some sort of leak. Finally there was only one thing I hadn't really checked: I undid the insulated...

      The most likely cause is an intake leak. Check all the post-MAF intake air plumbing--the hoses, pipes, clamps, everything--as well as the PCV system. Check for cracks, fit, tightness, etc.

      If it's genuine Bosch, I would expect it to work as well as any genuine Bosch MAF, regardless of where it's made. Otherwise Bosch would clearly have some serious and uncharacteristic issues.
