I already cleaned the MAF previously and checked for carbon residues but that did not solve it. I cleaned the error codes and started disconnecting as follows:

- TPS: Did not solve the problem
- MAF: I disconnected the MAF, cleaned the error codes and kept the car connected to the fault reader. I started the engine and the moment I put the MAF plug in, the engine almost turned off and generated what seemed like a breathing sound and started hunting again. I am now searching for a MAF with the same number to replace it and make sure that this the cause of the problem. Thanks for your help guys!!

One more thing I noticed, was that one of the exhaust joints gaskets, right after the catalytic converter is leaking some gas. Would that cause additional symptoms?
