Question about 1990 Nissan 300ZX
Sometimes what appears to be a MAF sensor is really just a dirty one. It only takes a tiny piece of foreign material to make it go haywire. you can clean it using ELECTRONICS CLEANER, not carb spray and let it air dry. I have seen this a few times.

hi from the uk the location of mass air flow sensor on x type jag is as follows==it is on the r/h/side of the air filter cover with jaguar embossed on top? this sensor is just prior to the intake hose that connects to the motorised throttle body from filter connections underneath it to unplug and meter is held by two screws ?if memory serves ? may i suggest you remove the large hose and use a little wd40 or similar to clean /lubricate the throttle butterfly in throttle body throat at this point so as to prevent future sticking upsetting of idling ? hope this helps ?

Remove it and clean with some carb cleaner and a Q tip. Be careful with it so you don't do any damage. 9 of 10 times this will get you running again! Since signal from there is variable low voltage, you cant really bypass it!

It's should be a simple remove and replace. Just make sure the engine is off. Also do not touch any of the filament wires on the sensor, just the plastic housing. Also after you install it drive the car for a little while (city speeds, cruising speeds and inbetween). That way the computer will be able to readjust its setting since it is a new sensor.

SOURCE: location of mass air flow sensor
The sensor is mounted on the throttle body between the air cleaner assembly and the air cleaner outlet tube.
