i was getting a code poo38, i changed out 02 sensor and erased code, took it for a test spin, hesitates and sputters on acceleration...any help would be a big help...no code showing now but cant really test as no plates...can only start it up...thanks for those that can offer a little help. :) starts fine and idles fine...seems to be more pronounced when at normal temp not cold when driving

OK, just wanted to make sure you replaced the right one. That wasn't causing any issues anyway. Neither would the vapor canister. I don't understand how that came up.

If it's not setting any codes, it will be more difficult to find the problem. The symptoms do tend to make the MAF suspect along with any related wiring or intake hardware.
