Cleaning MAF question....

ok so i went to walmart to get some Qd or any kind of contact cleaner but no luck... upon a search of my basement i found this though.... its 2001 Electical Cleaner and Lubricating Spray...says it can be used to clean contacts among other things but im worried that the "lubricating" part isnt good for a MAF...

any ideas.... john, bob?

i personaly wouldnt use that, rather go to murrays or any parts store and get some throtle body/ MAF sensor cleaner, or even brake cleaner, carb cleaner will leave a residue on the wires so stay away from that, and make sure you have some compressed air on hand to blow it off.

I also used brake cleaner with no negative results. Works great.

Don't use that stuff. You may be able to get away with brake cleaner but I wouldn't use that either.

Get your self a bottle of CRC QD Electrical Contact Cleaner. Leaves no residue and is designed for sensative electronics. Last I checked, CRC also made some stuff specifically for MAFS; you may want to give that a shot.

NAPA also carries something made by CRC that is called MAF Cleaner. It isnt cheap, but it is guaranteed safe for ALL MAFs
