well, cleaning the maf dint work... so back to stock *gosh stock does sound REALLY quiet haha* and towed to the deal it is. im placing my money on the maf. thing that tipped me was when i started to car, after idle for couple minutes, i could smell a gasoline. i think the car is running rich cuz incorrect maf info. later

well, looks like debears2k was correct after all, the service rep jus called me and said it was a bad maf sensor... this guy is pretty chill unlike the cunt i had to deal with last time. later.
