I've got a really bad stumble from 1-2 and noticing my idle is dropping a couple hundred rpms at lights. Almost 99% sure it's my MAF.

Curious what cleaner y'all recommend to hit it with after I remove it? Anything nowadays work better than another?

You could also have a dirty throttle body if it has not been clean for a long time.

I'm also considering that too...thinking once the rain breaks here from the noreaster I'll pull off the air cleaner assembly and clean it all out.

Small update: Realized I never posted the resolution. This was a bad ignition coil. $108/fixed at my local guy. Said the other three are factory so I may be chasing them down the road. He also replaced all 4 spark plugs (at my request) and we addressed the valve cover gasket that was weeping a bit of oil. Unbelievable how well it feels now with that coil fixed. He said these lil motors are tough and will last forever. I sure hope he's right, as I plan on driving this car into the ground!


[edit] My throttlebody was surprisingly spotless!
