Nice guide it's nice when people post step by step with pics, makes it easier to follow smile

On suggestion: electrical cleaner works better than Alcohol. Cut and past from an earlier post of mine:

Clean the MAF using electrical cleaner, can be bought at radio shack.

"In order to remove oily residues from the MAF, you want a non-polar solvent. A "no residue" electronics cleaner/degreaser will work MUCH better than alcohol, as it will have been compounded to dissolve oils and will therefore contain a non-polar organic solvent. Alcohol just doesn't dissolve oil very well - try cleaning your hands with isopropyl the next time you do a bit of wrenching - it's doesn't work very well. Polar solvents dissolve substances that are water soluble, but do not dissolve oily substances. Non-Polar solvents dissolve oily substances, but do not dissolve water soluble substances. Moderately polar solvents have a tendency to dissolve both types of substances. Petroleum distillates are non-polar, alcohols are moderately polar, and water is polar."

just use some alcohol, I'm sure you have some. I had some in my medicine cabnit and didn't even realize it smile

Just be careful and take your time and use a cotton swab and be gentle.

Very easy to do! thumbsup

well, it;s not going to give you anything unless its dirty, then it will restore lost power.

I had a REALLY bad problem where I would bog down and almost stall when I first drove the car after it sat for more than an hour.

That's gone, and the car is running smoother!
