Yes...

Yes...that was me who said that...I never seen an MAF cause a engine light to come on only because of it being dirty...but if it was dirty enough, it would cause your computer to get the wrong reading causing you to get an engine light.
which basically means yes...i think i just confused you...sorry

I think

Hold on...i think you should just slow down for a sec...this could be a very minor problem, drive your car around a few times (2 days) and give it some time to dry...i think you just got something a little moist or wet.
it happens, sometimes your car will fix itself

Why don't you take a look at your maf. There's a tiny wire runing though it, if it's broke you'll get a check engine light. If it's dirty your car will run like ****, which will in turn make something else throw a code.

Get the codes read

Instead of just second guessing what your problem might be, take it somewhere and have the codes read. AutoZone I hear does it for free. Then you'll have a better idea what the problem is.
