Engine Performance problem
2000 Chevy Suburban V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 98000. Miles

I had a code reader ran on the vehicle, it said the mass air flow senor & and the idle air control valve were bad, I have replaced both, but in cold weather it wont idle smooth, it just hunts back and fourth, but if I unplugg the mass airflow sensor it will run fine, I looked at the wires for the mafs, they appear to be ok, do you think the mafs could be bad, it was a reman. Thanks for your time.

Most times when MAF disconected and idle good is a faulty crankshaft sensor that does not set code but causesMaf to set. Located right side block above starter. An Auto Zone will pull codes free.
