MAF SENSOR

1996 Geo Prizm • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 178,000 miles

Where is the mass air flow sensor on a 1996 geo prizm? I was told to clean it out? But don't have a clue where it is! Thanks so much for your help! Jen

You don't have a MAF sensor-you try cleaning the intake air temperature sensor in the air cleaner housing

Most of the time cleaning a mass air flow never works. The carbon becomes impregnated on the tip and stays. Replacement is the only answer.
Anyway, what issue are you having with your car?

Well, if I accelerate over 60-75 after running it for awhile it starts to sputter. I have done a complete tune up on the car. I don't get any codes from the computer. So it is been hard to diagnose. Any help would be appreciated!
