2002 chevy IMPALA

I'm begining to hate this car.

I was driving the car home from work on fri and the check engine light came on. I took the car to auto zone had them read the code . The code was 102 . It told me it was the "BARO,MAF,or VAF". Did I do something wrong when I replaced the radiator. I was reading another thread and someone said to use a MAF spray cleaner does that stuff work or should i just nuckel under and pay the 145 $ and replace it. Any other help would be apprecated. THANKS

I wouldn't cough up the big bucks just yet. Yes cleaning might work. Use only an approved cleaenr and be very careful; the sensor can be damaged if you're not carefull. But first have the light reset, if they didn't already, to see if it comes back; could always be a one-time thing.

Here's some additional info on the P0102:

OBD-II Trouble Code: P0102 Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit Low Input
