if this is setting any kind of lean codes at all that means there is a vacuum leak or low fuel pressure or dirty or restricted fuel injectors
lean = too much air not enough fuel
we have to eliminate fuel pressure as an issue next

Expert:  Gary replied 2 years ago.
there is a fuel pressure test port on the fuel line top back of the drivers side of the engine near the distributor to test the fuel pressure

thats fine let me know
if the fuel pressure is 60 - 66 PSI key ON engine OFF and will hold within spec for a few seconds then remove and clean the MAF sensor out and see if that makes any difference either way and also find out what the code numbers are
