    No but a dirty MAF can.

    Are you using K&N?


    When's the last time you cleaned the MAF?

    K&N filters are know to "dirty" the MAF sensors on our cars. Most common reason is ppl dropping the filter in without giving the filter enough time to "dry" when you service it.

    Any parts store sells MAF cleaner. One can will last a while.

    I do it once a month and every filter change. I use a paper filter because you get the same flow.

    Access the MAF, do not touch the thin wires, spray the cleaner a couple of times, I shake the excess off and let it sit for a few mins. Let it dry before reinstalling.

    Thanks ! Just a side note to people cleaning the throttle-body still attatched, I was cleaning the TB with a can of Sea Foam Deep creep using the supplied thin red straw-type applicator when the SOB shot off going threw my TB and into my intake manifold ! I was freaking out! Luckily it was in the galley and i finally got it out with a grabber and some sticky tape! Just food for thought!
