The maf on it isnt used a maf only a temp sensor the software change made the syatem speed density controlled fuel.. but if you have a idle probel it may just be the Idle Air Control Motor or IAC try to put foor on the gas pedal a little whne cranking see if it fires right up if so suspect the IAC.. is if still cranks long time try the fuel filter but those usually will make lack of power before you get a hard start issue.

Sudden power surge -happens in stop and start traffic. Foot on brake when power surge happens-I had to slam on brakes to prevent read end collosion. Three events in last two weeks.


Just my opinion, I wouldn't drive till you get it looked at, that sounds dangerous.
How long since a tune-up?
Any applicable trouble codes?
Sounds like something is telling the computer to up the idle, at the moment, I don't know why? Are you running the ac when this happens?
Check and clean throttle-body and anything that has to do with idle air system. Also, check the maf sensor, where applicable.

Check to see if it needs a tuneup, has a maf sensor or iac that needs cleaning or replacing.

Locate you computer (right front kick panel) and tap on it with a pen while the car idles... Also flex it back and forth with your hands to see if the car runs rough or quits... You may need a new one.
