The MAF can cause lots of bucking & jerking & stall/hard start issues. So can a combination of bad motor mounts and cracks in the intake hose(s) that open and close as the engine shifts around , causing a fluctuation in the MAF reading. Best to diagnose for all conditions first , before replacing part(s).
