Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Pontiac Sunfire 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

engine sputters as if the mass air flow sensor was going bad. Car doesn't have one. On the trottle body next to the butterfly is a round hole about the size of a nickle, when I spray mass air flow sensor cleaner in the hole and wait for it to evaporate the car runs fine for about 30 minutes. Afterwards it starts to sputter again.
