so if the oil has come in contact w/ the MAF i would need to replace or would i be able to see or tell if it had oil on it and could clean it off? i've removed the filter and cleaned it twice already. however it really does seem like it would be a sensor, it's just acting to strange i drove it to work this morning and seems to be worse, it did the same thing 1000 rpm sooner than it had been. i'm sure i'll just have to get under there and start checking and replacing thing's but thanx for giving me a place to start. i'll keep this updated if i find out anything new, and please feel free to list any other problems u believe it to be.
