Coolant temperature sensor, the blue one on the coolant pipe on the passenger side of the head. At 68 degrees F., it should have a resistance of 2200 to 2700 ohms. At operating temperature (80 degrees C.), the resistance should be 300 to 360 ohms. Also check the wires going to it for breaks.

Noticing that after a week there is a buildup of soot on the rear bumper from the exhaust. I have searched the archives and saw that some have indivated that a b ad AFM causes this. Can I adjust it? Do I pop the cover and clean the carbon off the track under the sweeping needle? Do I adjust the screw under the "tamper proof" blue plug?

Or bite the bullet and spend $1000 on a Split Second Gen 2 MAF kit!!!! Yeah......
