Yeah, I've seen a lot of people talking about cleaning the MAF when I was doing my research too, so I may give that a shot since it's the easiest/cheapest thing to do. Never done it before, but I can't imagine it's all that difficult. I've seen a quite a few people talking about using propane to find vac leaks, so I may consider giving it a shot. The guy I normally took my cars too said the smoke test will run me $100...not a bad deal, but I wanted to see what other shops had out there. Thanks for the info man...and sorry, I just realized the way I posted that seemed like I was kinda asking you about the issues. Nevertheless, thanks!
