It's located in between the air filter box and the throttle body. There is an electrical connection attached. A dirty Mass Air Flow Sensor is often the culprit when the car runs bad. Usually, it kills when accelerating from a dead stop. Remove the sensor by disconnecting the hose clamps. It is a small wire that is resembles an antenna. Spray it with electrical contact cleaner but don't touch the element. You might break it because it only as thick as a human hair. The cleaner will evaporate so don't worry about wiping it up. Be carefull when reassembling the hoses and the two large clamps because if you get an air leak the engine will run lean and may trigger the check engine light. After it's all together you won't believe the increase in performance.
