If there was oil in your Air filter, NOw you need to clean the MAF.
To check this, warm the engine. then disconnect the MAF harness (right
after the Air Cleaner box) and drive it around the block. If it drives
better, your MAF is dirty.
Note all the other sensors must be in good shape. If the engine runs
worse, you have another sensor problem, besides.
Remove the sensor assy by using locking pliers on the two screws to loosen,
then jewelers Screwdriver.
Use a clean paintbrush or soft bristle toothbrush and rubbing alcohol, do
not bump or bend the elements. repeated dip brush, rinse. Takes about 20
All this assumes that you dont have serious blowby, in which case, it'll
just happen again.
