Keep the car running smoothly and potentially get back some lost performance by cleaning the Throttle Body and Mass Air Flow sensor The throttle body controls air flow into the engine and will open and close when you press or release the accelerator pedal. The MAF or Mass Air Flow sensor is a device that measures the density of the air coming into the engine from the air intake.
