Tear of Joy

Just clean my MAF sensor and the power that had been lost at about 5 grand is back, smooth power all the way up to redline, so sweet

I did mine this weekend too. I was getting the P1128 and P1130 CELs. About 52,000 miles on the car. The MAF was very clearly dirty when I removed it. Cleaned up nice though. I did not notice any performance difference, but hopefully it will at least run smoother.

Try re-cleaning MAF, while also replacing air filter [use stock paper filter], and cleaning out air intake ducts as far as you can. Worked for me, 5,000 miles so far.

Put the new MAF in and went on an 1836 mile road trip and it ran great!
