P0102 is a code for the Mass Air Flow sensor. The sensor is on the air intake tube. Check the connector to make sure it is tight, also you may want to remove it and check the pins on the inside of the connector to make sure they are not corroded. If the connector looks good, I'd recommend replacing the sensor. I've supplied a picture of the sensor so you know where to look.
