hi, I would make sure that the connector to the maf is connected right ,look for bent terminals .

also, check to make sure there are no vacuum leaks/hoses that are not attached .

just by spraying should not have disturbed anything ,but the small resisters in the maf sensor may have broken ,in that case a new maf sensor will be needed ..jazzmaster ..

yes, if there is even a small leak this will bring up an engine code ,and it will still run even if the resister is broken but it will run bad .

sometimes these can be disconnected(that is the electrical connector ) and see if it runs better ,most times that is the maf sensor being bad or dirty ..thank you ..jazzmaster ..

ok , I check with the scanner and the only code was p2177 says the bank is running I am going to retract thr Maf properly and clean .as far as I know there is no code since he erased the engine light but I suspect that the code is coming back because the performance is not there....need to check for leeks ,the funny thing is that nothing was disturb but things happens i will check and report back...Ahhh maybe the o2 sensor is gone,about the scanner I read somewhere theta some scanner do not communicate well with this system(VADIS DICE) that also get my curiosity
