I see the wire going into the MAF, but I dont want to break it, it doesnt seem to want to come out, it doesnt just unplug, there is usually a safety of some sort and i cant figure it out lol. The MAF is a 2 inch long section of the intake tube right? on my knn it butts right up next to the box so oil seems like a reasonable cause, the filter looks pretty dry though. I drove about 50 miles today on and off like 8 times and never had a problem. I think i will do some exploratory surgery tomorrow if i can get the damn wire to disconnect. i wanted to clean the filter and tube up anyhow because the dealership left it looking kind of crappy.
Oh and also, what could i clean the MAF with, without having to go to autozone again.
