are you sure the MAF was removed? Should be located between the air filter and TB/intake.

I was told it was on the hose coming from the airfilter it also was taken off, I'm truly confused now! what is the TB/intake? I have to be in washing state asap and have no strait answer from any one I have read a lot of people statements about other things going wrong with thiet trucks I don't have any of those proublems and never have my truck has 178,000 miles on it and I take very good care of it, its been in the family for yrs..if you can healp please do..

they took the hose off and rewired it to the alternator instead that cant be good..
