My CEL keeps coming on randomly after I cleaned my MAF sensor. I took it out and used a spray cleaner and put it back. Most of the time my Scangauge won't read the code but when it does I get the "small evap leak". I didn't have any problems before I did this. Any ideas?

Small evap leak has nothing to do with the MAF sensor. You most likely have a leak in the gas evap system. The charcoal canister and or the gas cap are the first places to ceck.

By the way did you MAF cleaner? If not you should have because everything else can leave a residue and not all the MAF to read. (I suppose a electronics cleaner or alcohol would work but I would not chance it).

Yeah, don't know why that code came up. Most of the other times though my Scanguage won't even read it. I find it odd though that I had no problems with the CEL until after I cleaned it. And I did use MAF cleaner. Try to clean it again maybe?
