Default Troubleshooting code 34?

Last night i filled up with gas and decided to return a coulpe movies... after filling up with gas I noticed about a little way down the road the service engine soon light appeared.. I figured one more block to the video rental.. suddenly my bonnie stoped running i coasted to a safe turnoff between highways and popped on the hazard lights... tried starting the car.. no success...

after being towed to the house we pulled codes and recieved code 34... after we got it started no service engine soon light was present so we took a test drive onto highway and back.. on the way back the service engine soon light came on again the engine stopped running secondes after and my dad put it in nuetral turned off the car and back on and punched it to get back home before further problems.. anyways it was towed to local auto repair to be fixed of the present problem.

If anyone has any idea let me know haven't heard from the shop yet

Clean MAF: Q-tip and rubbing alcohol
New MAF: $130? I don't really know. But buy it yourself, it is super easy to replace.
Loose/Bad connection: Time to find and repair/reseat
