I would check all spark plugs for spark. Make sure all of them are firing properly. Also check your oil. Does it smell like gas? If so you might have an injector stuck open. This can cause similar issues.


Coolant temperature sensor, mass air flow sensor or fuel pressure regulator


I would also check the timing.


i put a timeing light on it it was good ---when i un plug the mass the car dose not chang ..

Clean it and see if it helps. If not replace it.
