Engine Stalling at Low Idle - Error Code P0102

I was taking off from a stoplight to get on the tollway and got an "Engine Failsafe Prog" warning and lost a good chunk of power. I pulled over, restarted and the Service Engine light came on.

When I got home I popped in the OBDII reader and saw Error P0102 - MAF sensor low input. So I ordered a new one from getcoolparts.com after a search here.

Thanks for posting those threads guys.

I picked up some electrical contact cleaner and cleaned out the current MAF sensor twice. It stalled leaving my driveway and again leaving my neighborhood, but it was fine for the rest of my 20 mile commute. Hopefully it's fine through tomorrow until the part arrives.

And hopefully that's the actual problem.
