How many miles? It wouldn't hurt to do the ccv, though how is your car now?

You cleaned icv...did you clean TB too as mentioned? TB gasket is a nice thing to do while there.

If the stalling issue improves, as I said, try cleaning it better next time.

But also, look into the maf (I'm not rereading...too lazy!)...start with cleaning connectors...some have 'recrimped' the female crimps. I usually clean every electrical connector when I open it, and I doubt it's helped me, but I know the crimping has helped a few here...cheaper than a maf.

If it runs better without maf, it's either the maf or air leak...or something else I'm not thinking of!
