I suspect it might be coolant leakin into the combustion chamber because I have changed the spark plugs already. Anyone have any ideas? I would be grateful to hear from you.
could be the MAF, or it could be improperly gapped spark plugs, or spark plugs with a different resistance than the computer expects. If the gap is ok, try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, and reconnect.

Try spraying the MAF with computer contact cleaner -Don't touch the wires, just spray it liberally.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.
