CRC makes two products that could be applicable: "Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaner" and "Electronic Cleaner"

Be careful when removing the sensor and when spraying the piece. Allow it to dry (shouldn't take long at all) and reinstall the sensor. Have a friend drop off a can of the cleaner, which will probably cost about $6-8 per can.

    What does the mass air flow sensor affect?


    AFFECTS FUEL MILEAGE AND POWER. ALSO MAY CAUSE ENGINE TO STALL AND DIE. YOU CAN CLEAN THEM SOMETIMES AND WILL WORK OK. LOOK FOR A SPRAY "MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR CLEANER" AT A LOCAL PARTS STORE. REMOVE SENSOR AND SPRAY ON THE CENTER, THERE ARE TWO FILAMENTS THAT DETECT AIR FLOW THAT IS WHAT YOU WILL TRY TO CLEAN, IF IT DOESN'T WORK THEN YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE IT.

    Most likely the Mass Air Flow sensor. I had a similar problem and the codes you have ring a bell. Follow the above link for more information.
    Look on-line for the parts. I found one for around $70, but they are $320 at the parts stores.
    It's easy to change
    Best wishes!

    2001 kia optima hesitates on acceleration gets better when warm, but still does it, has 2.4 engine


    3 possible problems your mass are flow meter/senso could be going bad but not bad enough to register a fault, the same for your idle air valve and also your throttle position sensor. all 3 of these are on your throttle body .
    with the engine running tap the side of the mass air flow with the back of a screw driver, if the engine sputers mass air flow needs replaced.you can try cleaning it with some mass air flow cleaner if you cant find that at your auto parts store get some electrical parts wash. your idle air valve needs to be cleaned or replaced there hard to get off. your throttle position sensor , you need to know the setting ,if the auto parts store cant give you aprint out of instuctions best to let a kia dealership do it and pay out the ****.

    Need to clean massive air flow


    There is a special cleaner/solvent needed to clean mass air flow sensor. It can not leave a residual film. You can go to most any auto parts stores & locate it. It will say mass air flow sensor cleaner or safe to use on mass air flow sensors. I know a company called CRC makes the one I use. Just disassemble boots to both side of sensor & unplug wire connector. Clean off both sides of grid & allow to dry. Reassemble.

    Can the mass air fow sensor cause hesitation when accelarating?


    Yes it could be bad sometimes cleaning it works and sometimes it doesn't. You should wait for the light to come back on and get the code before you buy a MAF sensor as it is expensive. You need to replace your air filter because that is likely that the fibers came off of it. You need to use a high quality stock replacement air filter.

    The electrical connection does have a clip that you will have to push in order to remove the sensor. Do not use any liquids to clean the MAF Sensor, compressed air only. Your vehicle will not run without it!
