Thanks guys. Wow, I don't know where to start now. I can get it to run above idle speed but here is the scenario. I hold throttle a bit above idle. It stumbles along and at some point cleans up and revs steady at say 2000rpm for maybe 2 seconds then cuts out like no ignition, tach and tcs lights go wild, almost comes to a stop, and comes back to life again. If I hold the throttle steady it will continue this back and forth. Exhaust gets rotten egg stinky. If I let off throttle it will usually settle down to idle again.

Engine is the 2.3L

What's the MAF hose issue?
