Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero
Removal & Installation
V-6 MAF Location
Posted on Jul 07, 2010
Quite often the MAF sensor really doesn't need to be replaced, but CLEANED (properly) with Isopropyl Alchohol (common rubbing alchol) Do NOT use acetone or any paint thinning products that will destroy the factory calibrated coating that's ON the little sensors inside the unit. The little sensors (usually 2 of them) are pretty easy to locate within the unit, so use your gray matter (brains). Look inside the sensor unit throat after you get if off your car. They're side by side, fairly close to one another They're silver in color, about 1/4" to 3/8" long and a bit larger than 1/16" in diameter. Clean them using an ordinary Q-tip enough to rid them of dust and/or carbon deposits. They're pretty rugged in construction, so there's little to no worry of breaking them using a Q-tip. You'll usually see a tiny bit of foreign deposits clinging to the downwind side ON the tiny sensors before cleaning. MANY friends have been amazed at the remarkable difference in engine acceleration performance after this simple cleaning. Enjoy ! email@example.com

hi from the uk the location of mass air flow sensor on x type jag is as follows==it is on the r/h/side of the air filter cover with jaguar embossed on top? this sensor is just prior to the intake hose that connects to the motorised throttle body from filter connections underneath it to unplug and meter is held by two screws ?if memory serves ? may i suggest you remove the large hose and use a little wd40 or similar to clean /lubricate the throttle butterfly in throttle body throat at this point so as to prevent future sticking upsetting of idling ? hope this helps ?

Very easy for the Mass Air Flow Sensor....it is in the duct between the throttle body and the air filter box. Just unclamp the tube and remove the old and replace with the new.
On your pack....I need the engine size.

SOURCE: mass air flow sensor is
My check engine light came on and the code came back saying that the mass air flow sensor was out. All I did was change the air filter even though I really didn't think it needed it, the light went off and has not come back on yet. Knock on wood!

The sensor is mounted on the throttle body between the air cleaner assembly and the air cleaner outlet tube.
