SOURCE: mass air flow sensor
The mass airflow sensor is very important...it uses tiny diodes mounted in the flow path of the incoming air to the throttle body in units called CFM. It sends that information to the engine computer and the program calculates the proper amount of fuel needed to mix with the volume of air coming in. It is vital to your car that this sensor is properly maintained. If it's diodes are allowed to get dirty such as by having a dirty air filter, then the readings it takes will be inaccurate and the cars' performance will suffer. If the diodes break, you will not be able to drive the car and a new sensor is expensive.
DO NOT buy into snake-oil products like MAF cleaner...it is an expensive gimmick plus spraying anything under pressure into the sensor can break the diode filaments, some of them are barely .010" thick. Just remove the sensor with the proper bit and carefully poor a stream of isopropyl alcohol (isohol, rubbing alcohol) over the diodes until they shine. Then rinse with water and let air dry.
