How to clean a MAF sensor
They say it can’t be done. But at $300 a pop for a new MAF sensor, you’ve got only $6 to lose. Any DIYer can clean a MAF sensor. Just pick up a can of CRC MAF sensor cleaner.
Where is the MAF sensor located
The MAF sensor is located between the air filter and the throttle body.
Disconnect the sensor from the air duct
Then disconnect the electrical connector
Locate the sensor element
Locate the small circular opening inside the sensor.
Aim the stray at the MAF sensor element and soak the element with the cleaner. Allow the element to air dry. Do not touch the element with a rag or Q-tip. It is very delicate and can break easily
