Hi There,
Your car must be either the 3.2L or the 4 L variant. The error is for the Air Flow Meter. If you are planning to do this yourself, check the wiring if there are no corrosion and if there are connected properly. If you have a mulimeter or a tester you can test if the signal is still good. The ECU or computer module looks for air flow meter signal less than 0.2 or more than 4.5 volts between 400 and 300 r.p.m.

Mass airflow (MAF) or associated wiring

These should NOT be cleaned. They cannot be repaired, Just disconnect negative battery cable, unplug maf sensor and replace it with the new one. Just need flat head screwdriver.
