I have a 99 5 speed maxima and I've been researching on this forum along on other nissan forums and came to the conclusion that my MAF is going bad. When idleing my car sometimes does this hiccup thing but driving normal there are no problems. However, during high rpm's the car hesitates bad and sometimes makes this popping sound as if its backfiring. My check engine light is NOT on so I can't plug it into a computer to find an engine code. After reading other posts about the same symptoms, I think it is the MAF sensor. Any ideas?

it's mainly under hard acceleration. If I gradually get to high rpms then it doesn't really do it, but if I give it all it's got then it decides to get pissed and start hesitating real bad and sputtering. Also it's now getting to where it will drop to about 400 rpms when I put it in N to slow down instead of downshifting.

I'm probably just going to buy coils and new sensor and just change out both of the possibilities that way I won't have to worry about fixing one right now then turn around in 3 months and have to fix the other one also. I appreciate all the help.
