ordered the fallowing:
- new intake boots / MANN air filter
- new fuel filter
- o-ring for coolant temp sensor (thanks jfoj, after a bit more reading and diving into the car I found the coolant leak was coming from that sensor, the infamous O-rings)
- and I picked up some MAF cleaner at local parts store
Thanks for the direction and help after some reading, I really do feel that this will solve the fuel/ air problem today I started up the car and drove it around. It seemed perfectly fine. Which leads me to believe its not something more serious (such as fuel pump) since its not so constant.
Also I feel like an IDIOT that I put that "intake" on the car (fell for the "cool" engine sound). I feel that I might have shot my self in the foot with that one. I think it could be part of the cause of the MAF being a little screwed up.
Parts wont be here until next week, so i'll let you guys know how it goes. thanks
