After reading up on these things i removed mine on the weekend and cleaned it with fluid ,result improved and smoother performance,as it is so easy why isnt this included in nissan standard servicing say each 20000k,and yes there is an oily residue on the inside of the tubing.

A lot of the fellas with these put an oil catch can on the crankcase breather tube to intercept the oil before it hits the air cleaner.

I had a 2000 model 3.00 and cleaned the MAF with electronic cleaning spray about every 15 or 20000 ks. I also changed the oil every 5000 ks. The truck did 190,000 and was still running perfectly when I sold it.

You would be surprised at what is on the service schedule that doesn't get done or done properly.

eg 60,000k valve clearance check.

and ?k aircleaner replacement.

etc etc

Be gentle,

Don't poke anything into the orifice.

Use an electronic parts cleaner pressure pack spray and let it dry out thoroughly before you put it back in. I noted supa cheap had MAF cleaner spray on sale the other day.

Greg / others - when you do it could you put some photos on EO of the process, bits to spray etc. Not sure whether I want to try doing it myself just yet. Sounds worthwhile though. cheers

hey guys,
i couldnt find any MAF sensor cleaner at supercheap. but i did find Ignition and wire dryer made by Permatex,
could this be used in place of the MAF sensor?
it contains Petroleum distillstes, hydrocarbon propellant and tetrachloroethylene.
the directions only say, shake well, spray onto distributor, ignition wires, sparkplug connections and electrical connections, Allow liquid to penitrate. start engine.
thats it.

It looks very much like a MAF sensor, that is it has three wires a pneumatic input down stream of the turbo, if you say its not a MAF sensor what could it possibly be.

In the electronics industry we always used CRC CO Contact Cleaner as it leaves no residue and is safe to use on sensors.
