Thanx, that makes sense, there were several options that i could see, just wanted a 'tried and proven' application. I really appreciate your response.

Cleaned mine today, Car idles and pulls A LOT smoother, its nearly not as rough, The longer diode had white crap on it, the shorter one had some black crap, cleaned it off, let the bottom part soak in some alcohol, then took a q-tip and softly cleaned everything off, runs great now

UPDATE:

My car used to idle at 1500rpm and the rare time it would drop down to 1100,
now it idles at 1100 all the time
so cleaning the maf fixed that too

Do you have any tips on clean the MAP "not MAF" sensor on a 1999 Suzuki Swift? I tried spraying some MAF sensor cleaner into the little inlet to solve my erratic idle problem, but didnt do anything. Is there a better way of cleaning them?

well here's my opinion, carb cleaners or contact cleaners are good for other applications, 'couse they are axtremly cold and the cold couses little cracks in the resistences, and the readings will be poor.
i used diesel, it's warm and really make a deep clean, i have tried both, the result it's better using diesel, with a little pencil brush.

No MAF on the 4 cylinder cars after '98.

Suzuki upgraded them to the far more efficient, precise, quicker, just plain better MAP sensor.

MAP = Manifold Absolute Pressure

Can some one post up some new pics on how to clean the airflow meter for a gt? And I heard the position or the sensor, either top bottom or on the side the position is important. Is this true?
