I think I might start by calling a coupla of car parts stores...this usually leads to prices and stuff. But it won't be cheap anywhere...we own those damn imports.

The diagnosis procedure for the MAF is pretty complex, you'll need a VOM to measure voltage from the connectors as well as the resistance between the components. And I believe it's made of an alluminum cylinder, it has a sensor to measure the rate of the airflow going in to the engine.

I was informed to just clean it with a throttle body cleaner that is safe for electronics also. I don't know of any brands that are also safe for electronics. Poison, what do you suggest I do to clean it? If I were to clean it with the spray stuff, I was plannin on sprayin the connector and the little cylinder thing in the tube itself or should I just spray the cylinder thing

Don't touch the sensor itself with any chemicals, you can use contact cleaners (in either spray or a pen form) from RadioShack to clean the terminals.
So don't spray the inside metal thingy w/tb cleaner or spray it with the contact cleaner and don't touch it afterwards? I just don't want to end up breaking it and having to spend mad money. Ive never in my entire 5 yrs of owning my car tried to clean this thing.

Yeah, don't do anything to the inside of the cylinder. The only thing that needs cleaning is the cconnectors (harness).
