sprayed MAF spray onto the metal sensors (careful NOT to touch anything in there....) had seena YouTube and was CAREFUL to NOT use BrakeClearner; WD 40 or ANYTHING but MAF spray.....had no real problems before doing this....but knew that MPG, etc. could improve if sensors cleaned.......also, put in new Air Filter.......????

with the car running if you unplug the maf sensor connector does the engine stumbles or rev up or you have no effect ,can you try & let me know

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
none of the pictures you sent me are correct............arrow on engine pic is STRAIGHT up and down...........NOT jagged; NOT lightning bolt (like I said the first time)...that is why I am talking to you...........could NOT find that diagram

Hi Im David, if there was no problem with the vehicle before you sprayed the maf sensor and now you have a problem you sprayed too close to the tiny sensor wires and broke one of them. replace the maf sensor.

none of the wires appear to be do you know what is wrong without being here.....NOT questioning your expertise.....just trying to learn how you KNOW that???
Expert:  david craig replied 9 months ago.

did you have a problem with the car before you cleaned the sensor?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
