Hummer H2 For those who like a little more gleam to their Hummer, the H2 offers a similar rugged look as the H1, but as a lower cost, and with more added features, making it almost a massive luxury SUV.

Cheap MAF sensor?

One way to check for intake leaks is to remove the upper beauty cover from the engine, start it up and let it idle, then spray around the edges of the intake, throttle body, injectors, fuel pressure regulator, PCV tube, etc and if the idle changes in a spot, there is a leak. Do this when the engine is cold and do NOT get any spray on the exhaust manifold. You can use a can of carb cleaner or even a propane torch (NOT lit obviously I hope). Do this outside and good idea to have a fire extinguisher handy. A fire is unlikely but better to be safe.

These mention what I'm talkign about. I've done it a dozen times myself....

One of the issues on our engines (and all GM LS engines) with the plastic intake manifold is the intake manifold gaskets can harden and deform causing small intake leaks.
I have finally tried but no changes in idle occurred. I will leave the car sometimes next week with my local mechanic who assures me he will fix the issue. We'll see...

I will keep you posted.

Thanks!
