Cleaning the MAF is NOT recommended on these cars bc the sensor is too sensitive.
As already mentioned, try disconnecting the MAF connector and note any changes in how the car runs.
Regardless, you need to find the source of the "sucking" sound leak. Manually move the throttle cable to increase the rpms while moving your head around between the throttle body and air cleaner to try to pinpoint the source.
Remove the air intake and inspect for cracks or holes, then reinstall making sure to tighten the clamps enough.
Replace the MAF if unsure of how old it is.
Try cleaning or replacing your upstream O2 sensor.
