Hello - the mass airflow (MAF) sensor is the black plastic cylindrical tube with an electrical harness that goes into the air filter housing on your engine air intake system. I would check for problem codes first however, as the behavior you describe could well be the throttle position switch, or idle air control valve - rather than the MAF. I would recommend an engine inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
