    correction, u don't have a MAF, your system uses a MAP, very different device that does the same thing whioch is to measure the air coming into the engine, only MAF's are cleaned, MAP's are replaced. here is a picture of the MAP sensor.

P0121 and P0102

P0121 is for TPS sensor, clean your throttle body. Use a rag, toothbrush and carb cleaner. Get it clean. P0102 is for Mass air flow sensor. Try cleaning it first. No toothbrush use qtips on tiny wires. Be careful not to break wires. It's located between air filter and throttle body. Clear light and retest. If 102 returns , replace mass air flow sensor. Also test all wires at sensors. Wiggle and pull. Resolder as needed

Show me location of code po102

This is the Mass Air Flow Sensor. It's a screen-like device located on the air intake line to the throttle body. It measures the flow rate and density of air entering the engine. The code can mean a few possible things:

1. Dirty Air filter
2. Dirty MAF Sensor
3. MAF Sensor wiring problems

Try replacing the air filter first. Remember that engine codes must be reset or they will remain in the computer even after repairs. If that doesn't work you can remove the MAF and clean it with a MAF Sensor approved spray cleaner. If you use the wrong cleaner you will destroy the MAF. If cleaning the MAF don't work, then replacement is indicated.

Specify were the pcv valve is located on 95 mustang v8?

Look on top of the block at back by firewall for PCV. Other things you may want to check/clean are idle air control valve on side of throttle body, as well as mass air flow sensor in intake air assembly. Clean IAC with throttle body spray cleaner and port it is removed from well, and try. Use tuner cleaner or electrical cleaner on MAF sensor . Sometimes just cleaning will cure it.

Code P0102 shows up indicates Mass Air Flow Sensor. 1998 Olds Intrigue. It is like it has the hiccups and dies when slowing down and coming to a stop. Is replacing the Mass Air Flow Sensor likely going to...

Try this first. You can buy some MAF cleaner( not carb cleaner) and try to clean it off. Let it dry completely and don't probe the sensor with anything but spray from the cleaner. Change the air filter with a quality filter; the cheaper ones leave deposits on the sensor.
