Is MAF cleaner the same as carb cleaner?
Likewise, can I use carb cleaner on MAF?
You can't use carburetor or brake cleaners on a MAF sensor, as the chemicals in those cleaners can destroy the delicate sensors. Instead, a special MAF sensor cleaner is required. First, NEVER use MAF cleaner with the engine running or even with the key in the run position. This can cause major damage to the sensor.
Likewise, does MAF cleaner work? Spray 10 to 15 spurts of the (MAF) mass air flow sensor cleaner onto the wire or plate. But if you clean your car's MAF sensor regularly, you can avoid that $300 repair and keep your engine running at top efficiency. The mass air flow cleaner only costs about $7!

- Spray the alcohol liberally over the MAF sensor.
- Place the wet MAF sensor on a clean shop rag or paper towel.
