KISS man. Keep It Simple Stupid is the acroynm you want to start with. Check plugs wires and distributer cover(yes I know we don't have em on late cars) But check to see if it is worn out full of carbon or cracked. When was thhe last time you did a tune up?

And why are you so quick to blame the MAF? Broken fan blade will cause your engine to jump around too. Lots of simple stuff to check before ripping a maf apart.

Suggestion buy a Bentley service manual from amazon.com
