CRC Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaner - You can get it at any auto parts store. You remove the sensor from the airbox, spray it, let it dry, and reinstall it. Shouldn't take but a few minutes. Be careful removing it and reinstalling it, and don't touch the actual sensor with anything or you might damage it.

You can pop the air filter out then the housing and possibly see the maf through there without removing the torx.

I cleaned the sensor yesterday. Big difference. It idles smoother, and on acceleration it picks up smoother. Not bad for 20 minutes of work....

Definatley recomend doing it. Mine must have been pretty dirty because it drives like a whole new truck now. I am really surprised by the results.
