If you need one in a pinch, Autozone's website indicates they are "in-stock" items. Price is under $100, plus a $60 core charge (www.autozone.com).

Advance Auto Parts lists one for $100, $50 core charge, but doesn't say if it's in-store or not (www.advanceautoparts.com).

Core charge is refunded when you return the faulty MAF sensor.

If you go with one of the above, make sure you transplant the rubber seal/gasket that's inside the MAF electrical connector. The replacements don't necessarily come with that "gasket."

Good luck to you.

5-Star sold me a new one for $149, a couple of years back.

The Advance Auto ones $uck, went through two to get one that worked. Lasted one year. They do not look the same as the Ford original MAF.

The MAF is a very important part to your car, so why go cheap? This is one thing you shouldn't skimp on.

And I am speaking from my own experience with the "cheapies"

You folks who are recomending a larger one also need to remember he will need a chip burned for it to work.

I was told by Firestone it would be about $300 to replace the MAF(S). They said that the part is $90 and the labor would be about $190 after I asked. I am gonna try to clean the one that's on there first to see if that helps. Right now it's unplugged, but the car is running great still.

What electrical cleaner do I need? Someone told me I should get "B12". What is that? Sounds too much like a vitamin.

$190 labor??? It should take less than 20 minutes to remove, clean, and reinstall the MAF sensor. I'd recommend NOT having Firestone replace the sensor for you if they're charging that much.

I followed this article for cleaning the MAF sensor, using the electrical cleaner generally available at auto parts stores. One brand available is CRC, if I recall correctly.

Yeah, I agree. iirc, they were talking about replacing the whole thing, MAF/MAF(S). Maybe that's why it was so much. But still, that's a little overkill right?

That article mentions certain chemical compounds to get and which ones not to use. BUT unfortunately, parts stores sell brand-name packaged products, not chemicals. Also, it needs to be updated. I went to order that torx tool or whatever, and the Web site (http://www.mytoolstore.com/sk/sk99043.html) said it was for an old catalog. I don't even know what to look for in the new catalog. Does anyone have a new link to the right tool to get? An identifying pic? Thanks.

Edit: Nevermind, I just found it online. Sorry

Yeah, that's very overkill. Not even a 20 minute job. You can put the thing in yourself, it's pretty easy.
