I think I may need to buy an new MAF because I cleaned it and everything else including the throttle body and it still does somewhat of a stutter thing. Does anybody know whethere or not an auto parts store would carry it or have to get it a a dealership?and the price?

It most likely is not your MAF to begin with. Tehre are tons of other parts it could be...

Clogged injectors, bad plug or wire, dirty air filter, something wrong with your trans....

What exactally are your symptoms?

If you decide to replace your MAF (which it doesnt sound like that's the problem) then I would goto a junk yard and just pull one off one of their cars. Cheap and it will work.

A MAF problem would constitute hesitation, stalling, or rough idle in all RPM's.

When was the last time you got some injector cleaner?

When was your last fuel filter replacement (thank you Brent)?

How many miles are on your fuel pump/car?

When was the last time you replaced your plugs/wires?

How dirty is your air filter?

See all the questions I can come up with? ;)

5 speed? it may be your IAC/idle bypass valve its cylinder shaped and sits behind the throttle body on the upper intake ( on 99+ ) mine went out and idle was a biotch if it idled at all (may just die) so go replace that sucker.
