i didnt know you have a CAI
, now i'm 99% sure thats what it is.
just clean it with throttle body and carburator cleaner and reset the ECU and you'll be fine.
reset ECU by unplugging the negative terminal on the batery for like 15 mins.
Hey thanks dude...do i use carburator cleaner for this part on the picture? how exactly do i do that? just spray on it or wipe it with something? thanks.
use a q tip, but thats not the MAFS, the MAFS is in the tube, it looks like floss and is very delicate, the thing circled in the pic is an Intake
air sensor (IAT).
clean the IAT and MAFS and you should be fine.
