    In fairness, I did go with the cheapest shipping option and RockAuto is a very well organized website.

    My 3/4" drive socket has a lot more meat to it.
    I guess that's why it costs more.

    The 1/2" drive socket probably would have exploded if the adaptor didn't break first.

    I think you've got a bad MAF and replacing it may very well clear all your codes and quite possibly stop the misfiring.

    The ECU isn't getting proper MAF data so it's just guessing and quite...

    Just noticed this.
    If your MAF is giving both high and low voltage, without a bad data code then I would suspect a faulty MAF.

    I would suspect that if you had an intermittent vacuum leak big...

    Carb cleaner works great.
    You just spray it around your engine and all vacuum lines and such, then when the RPMs increase, you've found the leak.

    It's way easier to find a small or hidden leak.

    Does your code reader give you the actual code number or just an explanation?

    There are three codes our car has for the MAF.

    A broken wire. A shorted wire. Or wonky numbers.

    The two MAF codes are not generic so keep checking for an intake leak.

    Check your intake tube for cracks.
