Seriously if you have 56k and driving a R, get your priority straight. <p>Oh my MAF was naughty. It played around in the oil too long.... Sorry for the big pics. But it needed attention to detail. 60k miles...<p> <IMG SRC="http://revmat.ch/picture.php?albumid=27&pictureid=203" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG SRC="http://revmat.ch/picture.php?albumid=27&pictureid=204" BORDER="0"> <p><br><B>Here comes CRC to the RESCUE </B> <p><br> <IMG SRC="http://revmat.ch/picture.php?albumid=27&pictureid=205" BORDER="0"> <br><IMG SRC="http://revmat.ch/picture.php?albumid=27&pictureid=206" BORDER="0"><p><br> <B>Ahhh Clean at last......</B><p><IMG SRC="http://revmat.ch/picture.php?albumid=27&pictureid=207" BORDER="0"><p> <B>F*CK you Tamperproof Torx.</B> <br><IMG SRC="http://revmat.ch/picture.php?albumid=27&pictureid=208" BORDER="0">

**<p>I purchased my CRC Cleaner from NAPA, but please note that IPD does sell it as well. So if your doing some cleaning, pick up a can because its really something you should look into cleaning.<p>Instructions<p>Take out MAF<p>Take off lid to CRC Maf cleaner<p>Use little red straw<p>Shake can<p>Test spray.<p>Use in small sprays 4" away from MAF and Element<p>Let it drip out as you do one side at a time.<p>Let it dry.... *wave your MAF in the air like you don't care*...but don't drop the MAF. Or your gonna be mad.<p>Clean MAF tube.<p>Re-install.

Re: (chinaonnitrous1)

<br>Here is one that will actually work. People should be more careful about recommending parts that they haven't used/purchased themselves. I bought my <B>5</B>-lobe tamper proof torx bit from metalnerd.com and used it to clean my MAF last year, so I know it works.<p>Part MN505000 - 5 Lobe MAF Bit <p><A HREF="http://www.metalnerd.com/cat05.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.metalnerd.com/cat05.htm</A> (a little bit more than half-way down the page)<p>Cheers,<p>J
