2002 2.7 Tacoma MIL On

hey now,
Damn check engine light came on today. stopped @ autozone for the free scan, ya know ? . per female autozoner, fuel/air ( mass air ? ) code. maybe 1145 or something. ain't sure. anyway. bought some $7 worth of maf cleaner and cleaned really well. was careful and let dry well. put back in, unhooked battery, cleared codes. light was off. yay. rode around for a few, let idle in yard for 'bout 10-15 mins. poof. light back on. rode by toyota dealer he said( long story short ) prolly maf but $85 worth of diagnosis fee to really know. problem is, am literally going to the mountains ( gatlinburg ) tonight. see, i need my taco to be sound as my redheaded wife will NOT be so understanding should anything mechanical go wrong and prevent forward , gasoline powered, air conditioned, mobility. just came on @ idle in traffic. no noticeable difference running. not rough, skipping, or smoking. getting, 24 mpg. per # of gallons to top-off.

question : yall think i'll be alright to go ? proll 700 miles round trip. can't really afford the new maf today. plus advance would prolly have to be ordered so mon. at best. certainly don't want it to quit on me or leave me stranded.

oh and to answer your question, haha your prolly fine, it sounds like its just one of your sensors. do your trip but when you get back find out and fix it. cuz it does effect your ECU and acceleration a little bit,
