Try tapping on the EGR valve with the handle end of a screwdriver. It may be stuck open. That'll cause a no idle condition. If that straightens out the problem, replace the EGR valve. I've had issues with the one on my '00 Grand Prix GT Coupe. Also check the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve on the throttle body. It may be stuck closed. While you're there clean the throttle body and throttle plates with a spray can of carb and choke cleaner. All parts in there should be clean and shiny. BTW, MAF is the abbreviation for Mass Air Flow Sensor. HTH. -Jim
