personally I would say that cleaning the MAF only holds off the inevitable ... get yourself a new one ...
I agree . . . but i just had all my belts etc and all of my suspension done recently so right now i need a $30 solution and not a $500 one
Silly question time
How do you clean the maf??
sorry i didn't take pics but i followed this rough guide..(not a proper guide so use your brain first)
******Be really really careful when cleaning any part of the maf and only apply gentle pressure if needed.********
15' Star drive
static free spray cleaner
lint/static free cloths
I took the whole MAF unit apart and cleaned both the body and the actual Maf sensor (below)
I soaked the head of the unit in isopropyl alcohol, then used a lint free cloth with i-propyl to clean the metal sensor bits and also a lint free spray cleaner then rinsed in luke warm water.. rested on radiator to dry.
I soaked the body in luke warm water and cleaned the mesh very gently with i-propyl and spray cleaner.
You need to take alot of care and time to make sure you don't damage anything.
The difference it made is stunning ... like i said it's faster now than i can ever remember.
But back to my question... should i be worried about popping/ small backfires etc? overfueling? and the spluttering?
already did a ecu & throttle reset...
