Electrical contact cleaner vs. MAF cleaner
This seems to resurface in the various forums from time to time so I thought I'd post it out here for everyone.
A couple of people have raised the contention that there is no difference between electrical contact cleaner and MAF cleaner.
Most folks seem to conclude that there is in fact a difference between the two and you should use them for their intended purposes, not interchangeably.
I fall into the latter group for several reasons.
And in the case of CRC, which makes both products, they are not simply relabeled, but according to their MSDS they are chemically different.
So while I have no ax to grind here, I am just curious why anyone would just assume that electrical contact cleaner is okay for MAF sensors? Is it just about saving $6 or is there something more sinister (hey, it's Halloween..) at work?
Take care and enjoy the ride,
