Sound to me like you have a vaccum leak. not very common on your car to have an intake gasket leak, but it's possible. get some carb cleaner in spray can and spray it all over the fuel injectors as the car is at idle and listen for any changes in running/idling. If the car starts running smoother, than the car is sucking the carb cleaner into the engine resulting in better idle, which will indicate a vaccum leak.

The problem turned out to be the Air Flow Sensor. The technician I had review my initial findings tried removing the air cabin before the sensor and blowing through the channel with an air hose. In doing this, the fluctuating idle or engine missing went away. Replacing the MAF did the trick.
