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?
Dont listen to these people!! they are wasting your money for no reason!! The issue is nothing serious like they made it out to be!!! When you reinstalled the manifold, the gaskets were misplaced/out of placed, or even folded (even thought It seem to be perfect)!! .. which cause vacuum leaked!! It was a very common problem for people who replace the manifold themselves with the M272 engines. To be honestly, it is quite difficult to keep the manifold gaskets in place when reinstall the manifold. Some used fish string, I used super glue to hold the gaskets!! I took me 3 tried to get it right!!! You will have to reopen, reseat the gaskets, even replace if they were fold.... then everything will be back to normal.
