Have you tried to reset the codes since cleaning the maf to see if that helped?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I Reset the codes and the car was better for a couple days but is doing same thing again. the stumble is at idle or low rpms but at heavier loads power is good and it does not miss

I would recommend start by cleaning throttle body with cleaner and a rag. Spray the rag then wipe out throttle body good and also replace spark plugs if they haven't been replaced recently. Let me know how that goes or if you have more questions. Thanks.

Spark plugs were replaced about 10k miles ago.I'll clean the throttle body tomorrow and get back to you. thanks for the help

No problem, I'd also consider replacing at least the cylinder 5 spark plug if cleaning throttle body doesn't help. Let me know, thanks.
