Okay, did you let the sensor dry before you started the car? (You want to wait like 20 minutes after you've sprayed it, so that the sensor can dry).
Also, you may not have disconnected the battery long enough (usually 5-10 minutes). Note: it's better to use a scan tool to delete codes.
Also, after you disconnect the battery and reconnect it, your car may be running a little rough for a few miles; this is normal.
Here is a list of things to do/check:
- I would check the fuel pressure just to make sure it is within specifications.
- your MAF sensor could be bad and need replacement (since cleaning it didn't work)
- a faulty DPFE sensor or faulty EGR valve could also be responsible for your engine to run lean. Have them checked.
-You could have a vacuum leak. Have someone to check for vacuum leaks.
-Your coolant sensor could be bad
-Your o2 sensor could be bad.
If you're not really sure how to troubleshoot the above, I would suggest you take it to a mechanic. If you rely only on what the part store tells you, you could end up spending a lot of money in new parts that may not fix the problem.
If you're a gambler, replace the MAF sensor and see if it fixes your problem (since it is the culprit in a lot of cases); but again I make no guarantee that it does.
