I replaced the sensor and took the car for a serious test drive. Though the old sensor was old and worn out, I didn't notice any difference in performance with the new one. I will replace the fuel filter tomorrow and see what happens.

"cleaned out" the cat and performance was better than ever and fuel milage went right back up about 23 city and 29 to 30 highway hope that idea helps

A dirty maf can cause poor fuel economy symptoms.
P.S. After making any changes you should reset the computer so it'll re-adapt to any changes. Do this by unplugging the computer or disconnect the battery for 30 sec.
