Whoa, slow down there, pardner.
First, please click user cp and edit details so you can add your vehicle and location to your profile, it's often useful information when you're seeking assistance.
Second, the new member forum is just that, a place for new members to say hi, not really to delve into technical questions about their specific car. For that you'd want to track on down to the W202 forum since that is the native forum for your 2000 C class.
Next, where did you buy the MAF sensor? If it's an ebay special (or a "rebuilt" one) that is the problem. Genuine Bosch from a trusted vendor, otherwise you're just prolonging the agony.
Also, I realize you're probably posting from a smartphone, but stream-of-consciousness run-on posts are very hard to read and many people won't take the effort. Breaking it up into sentences and tossing in a "carriage return" here or there really helps.
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
