Heard this code may result from dirty/faulty MAF sensor. So I decided to start simple and clean MAF. But I need to buy cleaner first. AFter that, I planned to check for vac. Leaks. However, I'd heard elsewhere in this site that vac. Leaks usually cause too rich conditions, not too lean. Should I skip checking for vac. Leaks and move on to fuel delivery checks. I assume it can't be the O2 sensor - if so, I'd be getting an O2 code, right? Thanks for your time.
