    Default Shaking on light acceleration

    Okay well after my whole MAF deal the car is still runnin a little weird. Whenever i accelerate from a stop the car shudders a little bit and then runs normal. Then around 40-45 mph on light throttle when the converter locks up and the engine goes under more load it starts to shake again. Also it might just be me but it feels like the car lost a little power accelerating.. Idk maybe the MAF is just dirty? I didnt reset the pcm after i got the maf working again. OH and i just put the TB screen back in and my ltfts are back down to normal.

    What is your MAF problem? MAF effects a lot of other things. I'm just about to check out my MAF code, which also triggers a tranny code. Results are poor running, loss of power and slow shifts. Figure out your MAF issue and the rest may go away.
