p2006 Intake Manifold saga

Greetings all. New to this forum, but a veteran of Jaguar Forums. Yes, I visit those forums more often, as you might imagine.

Ok, here’s the story...’08 E350
Common issue with V6 intake manifold, code p2006. Determined cause as broken pivot lever.
Removed manifold, installed replacement pivot lever and related flap attachments. Reinstalled manifold. So far so good.
Start the car, still idling roughly. Take it for a short spin around the neighborhood. Running like crap, worse than before.
Read codes, and am now getting entire left bank cylinder misfire codes (0304, 0305, 0306). But, the p2006 is gone.
By the way, I did NOT remove the fuel rail when I took out the intake manifold
Go back and check that all fuel injector connectors and coil packs are connected on that bank...they are.
Cleared the misfire codes. Try to start car and I get crank but no start. Read codes and I get “0 dtc”. ?

Any helpful suggestions from those that have encountered this or similar?

Many thanks,

You are probably both right. However the long term fix is to replace the manifold. I think it's around $672 for a new one from fcpeuro and a rebuilt one on eBay is about $350. Just depends if you want a lifetime warranty from fcp or just a one year warranty on the rebuilt one. Basically boils down to how long you want to keep the car. If you just want to drive it for a year or two, then if it's just a gasket problem then you're probably fine for that period, but as others said, eventually the flaps fall apart and grenades your engine. There's several youtube videos about how to do the gaskets and making sure they don't move.
