Thanks for your quick reply. I bought some MAF spray cleaner and I'm going to try to clean it myself but now I need some help locating and removing the MAF sensor for cleaning. The car has several electronic modules in the vicinity of the air intake.
There is a two wire sensor in the rubber tube between the air cleaner and an aluminum housing connected to the engine block. On the aluminum housing there is a module with 3 wires labeled A B C. To the left of that there is a 4 wire module and below that module there is another 3 wire module. Which is the MAF?
If the MAF is in the aluminum housing, how do I get to it? There is a screen on the intake of the housing so I can't see or access the modules through there. Do I have to remove the aluminum housing from the engine block? I hope not because there is a lot of stuff connected to it. Can I remove the screen? Can I remove the MAF from the outside of the housing? Are there any precautions I have to take?
Thanks for your fine help.
