Need to clean your mass air flow sensor?

You might be tempted to grab a can of Clean-R-Carb for the job, but here's why you should use CRC Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaner instead.

Add brake clean to the list.  All those products seem to be basically alcohol based and I've used their electronic cleaner to clean brakes and vice versa.  Perhaps I'm a Luddite, a rube, or both but I never had a problem doing it.

I love the ACDelco penetrating oil. It foams up and has chemicals in it that actually seem to eat into rust. Works great for freeing up rusty hardware.

It wasn't always called ACDelco Penetraing Fluid, it used to be called ACDelco Heat Riser Valve Lubricant.

Not many cars have heat riser valves these days, sales were low so the product got rebranded as something else.

Not as many cars these days have carburetors as they do mass airflow sensors. Just saying...

Companies wouldn't sell as much product if it were called "general purpose cleaner".

Nonchlorinated Brakleen is acetone in a spray can.
