Well, it's a little hard to be optimistic, but (knock on wood) I just got back from a 2 hour test drive after replacing the MAF sensor and it ran fantastic. No stalling, sputtering, hesitating, or any of the issues, and much zippier overall. I took it on the highway and also in town, stop and go with a lot of turns, went to a few stores, etc... So far so good!!
When I replaced the sensor I also took off the housing and cleaned the screen, and also replaced the air filter (which wasn't horrible but figured I might as well).
I still can't believe the dealer wanted $850.00 for that part and I got a remanufactured one for $135.00.
Once again, I want to say thanks to this site and to dennis for all the help. If it turns out that this was the answer (which so far seems to be) you guys saved me piles of money, time, and frustration!!!!!
