Welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you with this problem.
I am sorry for the long wait
what is the code number that is set ?
are you 100 % sure there are NO vacuum leaks at all ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes, the code is reading intermittent misfire only on 1 bank
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
we've checked for leaks even around manifold gasket took it off and replaced fuel injector O rings, checked egr thingy also,
spoke with someone who said to do some tests for oxygen sensors? Is it possible that the maf sensor I replaced could've been defective?

at idle it runs bad like there is 1 or 2 cylinders skipping ?
off idle or bringing up the RPM over 1000 or 1200 it runs fine ?
it could be but usually would set a code for MAF
