Fixed! Bucking at 2,000 RPM.
« on: June 15, 2014, 06:17:29 AM »

Slowly but surely my car starting having a problem at 2,000 RPM, (1,950-2,050 at most).  It would appear to stutter, buck, hesitate, not run smoothly.  A needle width higher or lower RPM and it would run fine.  Accelerating through 2,000 was also fine.  This started over a year ago and has gotten worse over time.  Asking the forums did not get a solution. 

Last week I cleaned the MAF sensor with MAF cleaner.  Drove the car the next day and had no problems at all, the issue was completely gone.

Good to hear you got it fixed.  Good information to have on the knowledge base.
