Hello, thanks for posting

the engine has a misfire on the #3 cylinder, the other codes may not be relevant at this time but they referto a mass airflow sensor problem, possibly. Remove the coils( it should have 4 coils, one for each cylinder) these are known to cause misfires, remove the spark plugs and if the look burned or oily replace them, if the #3 has excessive oil there may be a ring problem but let's not go there now, replace the spark plugs and recheck, if the engine still idles bad replace the 33 coil and let me know if that helped.
