Idle is just getting worse

Okay, I cleaned the MAF sensor, the IAC sensor, and I am about to go buy a couple of new hoses for it, if this doesn't work I don't know what else to do. I guess that means I am going to be forced to buy either a new MAF or IAC, but how do I know which one? I don't feel like throwing money into it anymore if its not going to fix it. Any ideas?

Re: Idle is just getting worse

throwing any codes?

check simple stuff first, plugs, wires?

mine once filled with water on a 96 4.6 around the boot on the spark plug, would occasionally short to ground... I replaced coils before I found it :dummy:

Re: Idle is just getting worse

will spark plugs cause it to idle funny and cut out? and yes it threw up P1131 but I messed up and unhooked the battery after I cleaned the MAF sensor and the check engine light hasnt come back on.
