spark plugs or a bad coil pack will be my guess.

Is it when you first step on the gas or any time you try to accelerate quickly?

anytime im just driving around, constant speed. then also sometimes when i accelerate.

just changed the maf so im going to try it now. would it be the cad converter plugged up??

Probably a coilpack...start with the cheap and easy possibilities. Have someone measure operating voltage of the coilpacks.

I was gonna say MAF sensor, I had the exact same problem 2 years ago. Last year i had the problem again and it turned out just to be bad plugs.
