Cleaning a Dirty Mass Airflow Sensor:

Generally, you will need to scrub your mass airflow sensor either every six months or anytime you alter your oil. Cleaning is after you change or clean your filter is going to be a great way to saving both time and money.


Remove the Sensor:

To clean your mass airflow sensor, first, you need to take it out. This can be done by opening your vehicle’s airbox and employing a flathead screwdriver to pluck it out. When removing the sensor, make certain to never touch the wires. A disconnected mass airflow sensor can’t electrocute you, but the wires are delicate and tiny. Breaking one would require a replacement, which might run upwards of $100, so it is best to take care.


Clean the Sensor:

Next, you’ve got two choices. The most affordable option would be to require your mass airflow sensor and place it during a bag crammed with the application. Take the bag and move it around, ensuring the alcohol washes all of the dirt and dirt from the sensor. An alternative choice would be to travel to your local auto parts store and buy a special mass airflow sensor cleaner and spray it onto your sensor, but as stated before, this can be costlier.

Dry and Reinstall the Sensor:

After cleaning your mass airflow sensor with either the cleaner or application, let it sit, generally for 20 minutes or more. The sensor needs to be completely dry before it is reinstalled in your car, otherwise, you will damage it. Replace it and that is all.
