2001 Volkswagen Beetle GLX 4 Cyl 1.80L

Preventive Maintenance

the read-out for diagnosic is PO172, Bank 1 system too rich, I belive this has something to do with the mix of air/gas

what is the fix. I am thinking it is an air sensor, if so how difficult is this to install? thank you

Replace the Mass Air Flow sensor. This is a walk in the park to replace. Other things can cause a P0172 but the MAF sensor is common and has a very high probability.
