The MAF sensor is located on the air intake duct, under the hood and looks like the picture below..

Thanks, didnt actually expect a picture from you all. That is very helpful. Is it very hard to do yourself. Also, just want to know if car will run without it? Would like to know if it can just be unplugged? Lol

If you unplug the MAF sensor then the engine will idle very poorly and may even stall out. You will need to replace it. It is very simple, just a few bolts and an electrical connector is all that needs removed. Keep your old one though and take it back to your auto part store for a core charge refund, most auto part stores charge a core price for MAF sensors.

Thank you for the information. Seems like a relatively simple job. Might actually give it a try.
