Your MAF sensor is on the way out. Time to pick up a new one for around $150.

It could be water too. There is a large rubber grommet that allows the wires to go through the firewall right smack in the middle of where the water comes off the windshield on the passenger side. There is even a large cutout in the plastic cover allowing the water to drop right on it. If you have had any work where something new was passed through there, check it out. A small amount of water getting through there can really make f*@# up your car. When it dries out - good as new. The rubber grommet actually envelops the plastic retainer. I had some work done and they just dropped the rubber piece on top of the plastic when they were finished. Water got in and the car went funcky chicken on me. No CEL but the car just couldn't get it's head straight enough to make 2 K RPM. Sounds like this could be you too.

What diagnostic trouble code was it throwing, usually the computer tells you almost EXACTLY what the problem is. Unless you aren't reading the codes.
