Whats a TPS.. and where is the fuel filter located on the Taurus? I may need to replace both. Also how does one go about cleaning the MAF sensor? Just with carb cleaner or what?

The TPS is the throttle position sensor. It's located on the throttle body to determine how much the butterfly valve is opened (how much you're pressing on the gas pedal).

Fuel filter is located fore of the right rear passenger side wheel. You don't need to jack up the car to get to it although it helps.

Cleaning the MAF sensor requires using special MAF sensor spray. You can remove the MAF sensor from the MAF housing or just remove the airbox lid and shoot it without removing.
