Thanks for the input.

But I can assure it'* a little more then just a bit of 'dirt'. Remember, it just happened from 100% to working like ****. I've had a bad EGR as I know what it feels like and replaced it 1,000 kilks ago with a new gasket. Lots of unburt fuel. I can smell it. It'* heavy through the exhaust.

New note, only starts to happen when the car is warm and may go back to normal everything randomly, work for a couple of minutes and restart acting up.

Sorry for double posting, can't find the edit button.

That video is of me trying to drive...not idling. Except when I'm back home (I turn the steering right then left to park it near the end) and that'* when she decides to start working properly.

Something is throwing your AFR off them. Unplug the MAF and see if that helps. Also check to make sure the spark plug wires are not touching the O2 sensor wires.

Unpluged MAF and TPS when I was stranded on the side if the road 3 days ago. No change. Good call on the spark plug wires touching the O2. Will definitely check that out tomorrow.

Unplugging the TPS will cause running problems. That should stay plugged in. Only the MAF should be unplugged.

Have you scanned to see if the misfire is still on the same cylinder or if it'* moved?

18 crank or cam sensor error

22 tps sensor signal voltage low

23 intake air temp sensor out of range, low

34 map sensor signal out of range, low

Hmm, You have a few sensors to check here. However, I see a lot of LOW errors. Makes me think there is a problem outside the sensors. Like with the PCM.
