Default My Mazda is Sluggish, Jerking, Slow acceleration

Hi, i have a Mazda Etude (Protege) and i have been having a hard time figuring out what the problem is. The car is surging, starts jerking every time i accelerate at around 2000rpm at normal temp. But when the car is cold it runs smoothly. i changed the plugs, oil filter, cleaned the MAF, changed the fuel pump (i was told it has no fuel filter), checked the coil and leads but still no luck...please can someone help me out

Common issue is the MAF, followed by ignition coils.
