hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be glad to assist you. please allow me a couple of minutes to gather some basic info.Roy
ok, sounds like the intake manifold is leaking on the drivers side which is bank 2.
when they leak, it is hard to find when it leaks into the valley of the motor.
it is a very common failure. we have done a lot of intakes for just this reason.
not an O2 sensor. it is doing its job reporting high long term trims
could be. a used one is not the best idea. they tend to warp when removed.
we use dorman manifolds which you can get at parts stores or on e bay. they have a different design. the gasket is impregnated into the manifold and has metal across the front area where they fail.
that spec is correct. tightening them too much warps them
please dont forget to rate me as it is the only way I get paid for my efforts

Different expert here.
Did you still need help?
Have you smoked checked the intake system using a smoke machine?
If not, this is your next step.
YES, that is very clever and I do think it will work. It may take some time.. but it sure would be worth a shot!
Fuel trims are good!

YES, the intake valve spring could be broken preventing the valve from closing or the valve itself could be broken or bent causing this low compression issue.
