Please confirm for me - I'm pretty sure this is a hot wire type MAF sensor. '98 Lexus LS400. I don't have driveabilty issues, DTC's. Just for future reference. It's hard to see inside without removing it from the duct work (I don't want to intruduce the potential for air leaks). Hopefully, a photo will suffice.

I read that some MItsubishi's used a Karman Vortex type of MAF sensor and these should not be cleaned.

Thanks.

Never mind....it's a hot wire. Some early Lexus used the KV type MAF sensor.

You can see the wire.
Make sure it's not wearing a fur coat. Has fuzz on it. Use a magnifying glass. MAF cleaner will NOT remove fuzz from caused by not changing the air filter often enough.
