Hello and thank you for trusting me with your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will do my best to help you with your Oldsmobile problem.It does sound like the mass airflow sensor is the problem. If that was the only code in the computer then I would definitely replace the mass airflow sensor with a new one. Something you can try when the engine starts running bad, unplug the mass airflow sensor. If the engine runs better with the sensor unplugged then the sensor is definitely bad.
