Intake manifold

I have a 1996 Chevy Tahoe with 120,000miles 5.7L
In August I got a new intake manifold gasket. My check engine light came on last week and it said O2 sensor bank 1, I replaced that along with new spark plugs, wires, caps and my check engine light stills comes on now it says O2 Sensor bank 2, plus a misfire on spark plug, cylinder 2. I paid $600 for the manifold gasket and I brought my truck to
another mechanic and he told me that he needs to remove the intake gasket and put a marginal fuel sender, which is going to cost another $600. He told me that he thinks the previous mechanic did not hook everything back up the way it is supposed to be. I am a woman and I think I am being taken advantage of. My car sounds loud when you turn it on and when I stop at a light it feels like it is going to cut off.

Thank You For Your Time And God Bless You.

It sounds more like a manifold vacuum leak, I have never heard of the part you mentioned! Feul senders today are in the gas tank! Get another opinion!

Yes, I believe your being taken advantage of. There is no such thing as the part you mentioned on a Tahoe. I've never even heard of such a thing. Anyway. I noticed that you have the ability to scan your engine. What are the codes? What brand of wires plugs cap and rotor did you use? How long did these symptoms take to develope after you had the intake gasket changed? BTW get a new mechanic he or she is robbing you.
Let me know. Donations keep this site up and running.
