My car died on me last week and the dealer said it needed a tune up. They replaced plugs, ignition wires, distributor cap, rotor, and replaced bad intake gaskets(upper and lower). 30 miles later my car has similar sypmtoms but not as severe. It idles rough around 500 rpm and doesn't quite have the power it should, it seems sluggish. The service engine light is on and shows P0174, lean in bank 2. My mechanic diagnosed a bad MAF or an intake vaccum leak(possibly bad gaskets?). He was not defintive though. It seems strange but the car runs normal when the cooling fans turn on or the MAF is unplugged. The answer seems simple(change the MAF), but I just want another thought.
have the same problem?
