    I've got MSD 8.5mm wires on order and while waiting I decided to recheck my air filter. I had cleaned and oiled it before taking it in for the clutch.

    I run a Whisper lid with a K&N High Flow. Well, somebody at the dealership decided to reoil my filter and saturated it. Badly.

    I recleaned and oiled the filter and pulled the MAF and carefully cleaned the sensor wires with alcohol and q-tips. It made a significant difference. Performance is better and idle is smoother.

    Ok, my question. Should I go ahead and replace the MAF? I've heard in the past that once they are oil soaked they are pretty much ruined.

    Thanks,

    As others have stated just clean it throughly and you'll be fine. Just remember to clean ALL ducting also cause EVRYTHING got oid soaked. Including the throttle body bore and blade.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

No twisting wires together and taping them with elec. tape...LOL. Have to use certain gaskets on certain flanges with clamps. We pretty much have to follow Commercial (FAA reg's) and Military reg's when performing aircraft maintenance.


    sounds like its pretty tediouis, i think the city of detroit has a aircraft cert. inspector.lol

    Next time don't touch the filaments with anything...if you break one of them babies you'll be spending a few hundo on a new one. Just take the maf off the bellow/lid and spray it good with a non-residue cleaner like electrical contact cleaner or regular maf cleaner...let it dry and you're good to go.

    Also Amsoil sells a synthetic filter that isn't oiled...you just vacuum it out to clean it.

    Happy Memorial Day everybody! And thanks for the replies.

    I got a can of CRC QD Electronics Cleaner at Advance Auto and used it to clean the MAF and flush the MAF screen. It did a good job. I also sprayed the IAT with it. I wiped down everything else good. It really helped.

    I also put in a set of MSD 8.5mm Super Conductor plug wires. You should see my arms. The TA seems to be running strong now.

    Thanks again,
    John
