    MAF help!!!

    OK, was cleaning the air filter today, so I also cleaned the MAF sensor. No problems, but:


    I dropped one of the freaking MAF screws into the black hole that is the engine compartment. Have tried all the usual things; bounce the car a bit, roll it up and down the driveway, etc, but no luck. That screw is gone.

    Anyone know the thread size, diameter, etc. so I can replace it?

    Unless you dropped the screw into the hole for the MAF sensor itself in the intake, you should be OK.

    You do. Take the other screw with you.

    Thanks for all the help. Really, I mean that. You guys were soooooo helpful.

    Went to the Tru Valu hardware place and hand-matched the screw. I'd tell everyone what the dimesions are, but why ruin the surprise?
