MAF spray cleaner?

I have a bottle of electrical contact cleaner. Can I use that to clean my MAF?
It says safe for plastic on it too. There is "MAF cleaner", but it's like 12 bucks a bottle.

I would like to clean it beacuse I'm a spaz, and don't want the oil from the intake/filter I put on a while ago to blow up the sensor.

Alright. I did it and she's running a *little* smoother.

I may wait a couple of days and spray it off w/some rubbing alki, cause the cleaner leaves a "protective film" that I want no part of.


Every one should do this.

That rubbing alki WILL fuck shit up - the 3M Electrical Contact Cleaner is the BEST thing you could use. Brakeclean isn't going to harm it either if you do it sparingly... You do know you're supposed to oil an air cleaner OFF the car, and let it sit a few hours before re-installing right?

Yes. I have had several K&n filters in the past.


I used the exact contact cleaner you mentioned. Not that I don't believe you, but why would rubbing alcohol fuck it up?

It's alcohol - it dries out plastics and causes them to crack. Can also mess up any electrical diodes or resistors if it sits on them too long from what I was taught.
