Mine started out as a stumble, then worsened to a stall at idle plus rough running at low RPM. With the OVP and new coil it has gone back to stumbling but not stalling.

Everything thing I have done has made it better for a while but has not seemed to address the basic problem.

My next suspects are the idle control valve and hoses, fuel injectors, and (shudder) the ECU.

My tools are a DMM and a dwell meter - not exactly sophisticated.

You can buy the airflow meter from Bosch separately or the complete pre-calibrated air/throttle plate assembly. There are lots of posts either way. "Airflow meter pot source" is a good one.
