In case there are other members facing this problem I will up date what I did to eliminate code 36. I replaced both relays related to the MAF sensor and purchased a new MAF for 93 dollars. I installed the new MAF it took a while for the control unit to adjust to the new MAF but after a few minutes it idled fine.  Took it for a ride all was good shut car off and restarted and the code came back. I decided to clean the old MAF with MAF cleaner.  I let it dry for 2 days and installed all is good no code and car runs has it did prior to code36.  The car always ran fine it just threw a code.  Lesson learned I should have cleaned the MAF first. I now have a new MAF that did not get rid of code.  I hope this may help someone who is mechanically challenged like me. Take care!!! thanks for all the input!!!!
