    MAF cleaning Qustion

    So people told me i can clean my MAF to take off some of the dirt, when i called my mechanic he told me it is a big NO NO and get a brand new one.
    He does not make any money on the parts since i know him very well. But many others claim that cleaning it helped the car idle better and no issues with the maf... so i am LOST!

    I call BS! Go to any parts store and buy MAF cleaner(it will be specifically labeled as such) I've used it several times on different cars and it makes a big difference. Just don't use brake cleaner or some other such thing as that can mess it up.
