Default Car starts but won't run - VIDEO! HELP!

Ok,
starting a few weeks ago the car started to hesitate a lil and would kinda bog down, then it would get back up to power. Clearly and ignition problem. So i changed the plugs and the wires and now the car starts but won't idle. I made sure the gap was correct. .032 and also made sure all the connections were clean.

I made a small 1.4mb video of a start, and then a start (bog), rev and then it dies... My guess is the coil pack but not sure, what do you all think?! I need my car desparately, so any input would be helpful. The car has 109k and i have never replaced the coild pack. Let me know! thanks!

Stranded,
- Ryan

Sounds like she is hitting on all 4 when she's hitting...
Any CEL?
I had a simmilar experance with a Toyota & a bad relay...(water damaged from a leaky windshield)
Not saying this is the problem, but... if there is a relay that has to catch to keep the car running after the inital firing that is where I would start looking...
A wiring diagram to identify all of the EFI & ignition parts helps a bit too...

Best of luck

unplug the maf sensor and see if it will idle.

if it does and runs okay to 3500 rpm, you just found your problem.

McDade is the winner! My MAF is shot - i got the car to run with a crafty filter setup until my Link PEMS comes to rid of the MAF, let's hope she holds on! Thanks for all your help!
