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!
As desperate as this sounds, in comedy, 'likes' and 'views,' 'friends,' and 'retweets' really help. If I've ever helped you, please help me by friending, liking, viewing, and retweeting. It makes others think I have a following...it'll take you a minute or less. If you could, I'd really appreciate it!
