Default Don't forget to clean your Mass Air Flow sensor

Hey guys, I just wanted to remind yall to make sure to clean your Mass Air Flow sensor whenever your car gets about 40k miles or so. If your car has over that amount of miles it's important to hit the maf sensor with some "mass air flow sensor cleaner". It's really important to use that particular cleaner because the maf sensors are very susceptible to films that any other cleaners leave behind.

Basically take it off, spray the internal piece of the maf sensor with a hard spray of cleaner, let it dry for about 10 seconds and hit it again. It's important to not touch the maf sensor at all but just press down on the nozzle as hard as you can so it gets full spray power. The water flow won't damage the sensor but pressing on it will so just be sure not to touch it at all.

You will notice the slight hesitation that has developed when you just barely hit the throttle will evaporate, no pun intended.
