i've got a 1996 chevy monte carlo 3.1 with 201,000 miles. I just got finished an intake gasket that I did myself and everything turned out perfect. I recently discovered that I never put a new gasket in place of the old one for the EGR valve so I put a new one in after removing the old stuff. I then found a crack in the EGR tube that goes to the back of the engine. I got a new one and replaced it. Well I got the car to start but it didn't stay started. It sputtered out and shut off. The technician that was there disconnected the MAF sensor and it started right up but was idling at a steady 2500 RPMs (like I was partially on the throttle but not). Why is this? He says I need a new MAF sensor but then another technician told me a few minutes later that it's not. What could potentially be the problem? Any answers would be greatly appreciated as I am desperate to get the car back on the road. Thanks
have the same problem?
