First you have to unplug your battery to avoid shorting the sensor. Then you undo the 2 lock screws on top of your MAF which should be located towards the end of your intake. Also you undo the fuse. When you take it off you should see 2 sets of probes with a small wire running between both sets, the wires bein the sensor. It looks kind of like the inside of a bulb with the filament etc. Anyways I could see the sensors were all gummed up after I took mine off. You then use a Q tip and some MAF cleaner(that I'm not sure where you can get) and VERY VERY GENTLY clean the sensor. After your all finished Make sure it's dry, air dried only, then put it back on, connect the fuse and hook up your battery. If it was real dirty I'm sure you'll feel a ridiculous difference like I did. Hope this helps

MAF cleaner can be purchased at any of your local auto parts stores. I found some at pepboys not 2 days ago it was in the " greases/ solvents section. And it is labeled mass airflow sensor cleaner you can't miss it

Re: Loss of power?

Just buy some MAF cleaner at Auto Zone. Take the MAF off of your intake, spray 8-10 good squirts down into the housing and then let it sit out for 15 or 20 minutes to make sure its dry. Then put it back in. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING INSIDE THE HOUSING PERIOD. The only thing that should go in there is the cleaner.

People with the K&N filters tend to have dirty MAF sensors due to the oil to clean the filters

It's at most car parts stores.. O' Reilly's, Autozone, CarQwest, NAPA.. pretty much anywhere.. and it says Mass Air Flow Cleaner or something like it. basically, it should be the cleanest part on your car. spray it from all angles, but don't get any electrical parts sprayed. let it dry Completely. then carefully slide it on again... should make a world of difference. hah

Yep that's it and it's actually fast drying too, almost second after you spray it....
