Check fuel pressure and fuel press regulator, why not replace the reg.? Clean or replace the MAF sensor near the air cleaner. They sell cleaner spray at the auto stores, but you will need to buy tamper proff drivers to get the screws off.

hello Mark OK so i changed the and fuel press regulator. and Cleaned the MAF sensor near the air cleaner . but the check engine light and the trac light , still come on after going a few blocks if i drive like an old lady ... the car is fine. but most of the streets are 45mph . but no more studdering .. Thank you for your time ... and have a great day vicki
