The code for this vehicle indicates a problem with your Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor as you said.
I have attached the troubleshooting guidance for you. You will need a tester though.
You could try cleaning it. I have attached info on that.....may not look like yours but you will get the idea.
You could also replace....looks like Auto Zone (AZ) s about $208 bills....you might check O'Reilly's (OR) also if you choose to replace.
My suggestion, try cleaning first - check all connectors and wiring for good connection and no problems then clear the codes. AZ and OR can check and clear codes for free. Once they check your codes, if they find something and you don't get it fixed and need to get back with us, please make sure you tell us exactly what the code was, number and all. Example, if the code was E0568 O2 Sensor bad. Then make sure you give us all of that. While there for FREE also they can bring their tester out and check your battery, alternator and starter. It is getting into the cold months, might as well get a free check of those to ensure you are not stranded because of them.
Also, looks like you may have some recalls on your vehicle. The dealer may fix these for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on these to see if they apply to you.
The Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor is located near the air cleaner.
The sensor measures the mass of air passing through the air intake and generates a voltage signal. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) receives the voltage generated by the sensor and uses the signal to set fuel injector base pulse width and ignition timing.
The resistance of the sensor decreases as mass air flow increases. Voltage and current flow is increased to maintain the film's temperature and resistivity.
Spray the living daylights out of the wires. Do NOT touch them. ABOSOLUTELY DO NOT TOUCH THEM. Those wires are very small and delicate.
