Car runs rough and will die if not giving it gas, but runs fine when you go fast enough. When you unplug the MAF sensor, it will run fine, but it shifts gears really rough. Replaced the MAF and it still runs the same. Tried resetting the ECU, but can't find the right method, or it's not doing anything. Any advice

Did you bend it though? The cracks are in the deep grooves. Hard to see unless you bend it, but it doesnt take much uncounted air to mess the afr up.
I did bend it. I'm going to have my brother look at it tomorrow, when I replace the brakes, but I'm not sure whether or not it could be causing it,

We had no luck. He said that the accordion hose looks fine and he didn't know what else could be causing the rough idle.

Found out there were gaps in the intake from the previous owner who tried to cover them in silicone. Must have ripped the silicone when I was fixing the pcv hose. Got the problem fixed.
