Afternoon Peeps.

I'm currently diagnosing a problem that starts on Friday. My car doesn't want to idle, (it bounces from 500-750ish rpms at idle,) but runs fine when under power. If I have the AC on, (more drag on the engine) it'll actually stall when I'm coasting down to a stop sign in neutral. AC off it's not as bad, but idles rough. Any thoughts?

I've cleaned the MAF twice now. I think it's a possibility still tho, unsure.
I've sprayed starter fluid all over looking for a vacuum leak, haven't found one as of yet.
Possibility of PCV or EGR issue?

Any help you guys have would be appreciated, it's frustrating not being able to drive the car with the AC on in the summer.

Are there any vacuum line under there? If there is maybe one popped off, broke or is cracked, that could cause issues like that......

I checked every vacuum line I could find. The starter fluid test usually works pretty well, if it has a leak, it sucks it in, and the car revs up. I finally got fed up and just bought a MAF, and it appears to be running better. Was expecting to waste a hundo on the MAF just to cross it off the list, but it's not trying to stall out when idling back down. It does idle a bit high when the AC is on, or I should say the idle hangs up a bit as it's coming down. I may pull the IAC valve and clean it while I'm working on the car. I think the high idle is normal though, just being anal now.

Reset battery for 15-20 minutes so it can relearn the new maf

Did that while I was swapping it and doing other maintenance at the same time.
