Picked up a 96 sport last month and it ran fine but recently things have been a little wierd...I'm getting detonation on 93 octane above 3500 and forget about using 87, it sounds aweful. Ive read on the forums that a thorough tune up should do the trick. Now my major issue is that she stalls if my foot is not on the gas. As soon as i just tap the gas it's fine and if i drive it its smooth as ever w/o light, stalls. This has happened to me twice, the second being today. The first time this happened i kept my foot on the gas until i was at temp and then i brought it up to about 4500. My friend claims he heard a noise mayb a pop. I was thinking it may be something related to the intake? After that it held idle and again ran smooth as ever minus the it happenes all over again but still doesnt idle. ANY help would be greatly appreciated

When in doubt clean the MAF! Do some searching alot of people have different methods of cleaning these(I use an alcohol prep pad) But everyone agrees it needs to be done!
