the other day i went to clean off some spilled power steering fluid and antifreeze under my hood right behind the radiator and i now get a cel flash code for the mass airflow sensor. i didn't spray water anywhere near the sensor. at first the car would keeps stalling but after a day everything dry the car just runs like crap. I also have a bad rear knock sensor so between the two sensor errors i now get about 18mpg where i used to get 23-26mpg. has anyone ever had something like this happen. I have no problem if i have to replace the sensors but i have found that they are ridiculously over priced. Anywhere i could get them at a good price?

Codes take a while to reset unless you disconnect the battery or reset them with a tool.

You could try cleaning the MAF with a MAF cleaning spray. CRC makes one. Also check the connections... seems more likely that you got something wet or knocked it loose.
