I had issues like that with my car before. The first time it happened my car turned off in the college parking lot and when i turned it back on engine light came on, during the time i drive it with engine light on it was sputtering and shaking badly and stalled on me a few times found out it was EGR valve and had that replaced, no mroe problems until a few months later. had same type of issues but it was worse starting up.. eventualy found out MAFS was bad. So, with that said... i would check your EGR valve make sure it looks clean and not rusty or clogged up, because mine was rusted to hell which was getting clogged and not working properly. And i would bring it to mechanics and have them test your MAFS

Hello, Dardas. It's really great that you are interested in engineering. it's commendable that you care about your car so much and think ahead about good service for it. But if you want to get a good engine education you should ask for help professionals like https://pro-papers.com/buy-engineering-report and then you definitely can become a professional.

These are cheap, and you need to do them so you know when they were done.
The Mass Air Flow sensor is easy to diagnose. Unplug the MAF sensor, and the Power Control Module will put the MAF settings in default. If the car instantly runs better, it's time to clean (my personal choice), or replace the MAF sensor.
ONLY use the CRC MAF sensor cleaner (available at auto parts stores, and most Walmarts). Don't use gasoline or any other solvent on a MAF sensor. Don't scrub on a MAF sensor.
