O2 sensors probably, but to be sure check your MAF and maybe clean the element too.

Ok, The first thing you need to do is buy you a Chiltons or Haynes manual.
Make sure you get one that has the wiring diagrams in case you ever need them.


The element is the sensor wire in the MAF. It is very delicate and you have to be very careful so you don't break it. Clean it with a cotton swab and some alcohol or throttle body/carb cleaner.


Testing procedures for the sensors will be in the Chiltons/Haynes manual.
