On my 2004 it is buried in the air box somewhere. I still cant find it????
Need to clean it but just having a problem locating it.
It was easy to find and clean on my 99.

The MAF is in the back-end of the air box - You need to remove the inner insert - it just snaps into place.

Here's what the MAF looks like. When you split the air cleaner housing, it is in the housing on the engine side.

I cleaned mine and it made a ton of difference. I un-hooked the neg battery terminal while I cleaned the MAF too.

Did mine last night, but did not disconnect the battery. Started it up, sounded the same, but when I hit the road all I can say is WOW!!! Don't know if it will help the mileage, but V-10's and mileage is like mixing water and oil. THANKS guys.

It's better to do it, so that the computer recalibrates itself ...

If I remember correctly, it does it at WOT for a certain period of time, but don't remember exactly....

Leave the lights on, that'll drain the PCM's capacitors quicker too...

15 mins? I don't know, I always leave it off for a few hours, never really checked if codes disappeared any earlier. I've heard of others doing it for 15 minutes, can't vouch for them

Don't know if its right, but on a single battery car/truck I always take pos off and stick it to the ground so it makes good contact, and leave it. 15 ussualy gets it, on my own stuff, I leave it overnight, just to make extra sure , LOL. But they tell me i got something called ocd whatever that is, that makes me do things like that, and insist that you straighten the seat belts when you get ready to get out.

I just cleaned mine. I made a notiable difference. I can tell more in the shifts than the engine power. It does seem to pull harder above 3K RPM than before.

Thanks for the tip.
