How to clean air flow mass sensor? Where to find it?
I need to clean it. Causing acceleration issues.
The mass airflow sensor is located in the air duct between the air cleaner and throttle body. You can clean it with throttlebody cleaner but make sure to blow it dry right away after making it wet otherwise the dirt remains on the sensor when it air drys . DONT TOUCH the element . clean with the liquid and air only. I find in most cases its best to replace it rather than clean it . Also are you sure its the MAF thats causing the issue . In Honda idle and acceleration problems can often be a result of airlock in the coolant system. You may also want to look for vaccum leaks or dirt in the throttlebody . Hope this helps
This car does not have MAF sensor, it uses MAP instead. Need to remove that and clean air passage to it using carb cleaner. IAC valve tends to be a problem on these cars but it will cause erratic idle. At that age I would remove and clean throttle body whole intake manifold - will be great improvement. Takes few hours first time.
I have a 04 Honda Accord. The map air sensor is not where it should be. I can’t find it anywhere, any recommendations?
