All done and back together, went flawless ! My gears were definitely shot and I can see why folks say when one bank starts faulting, the other will not last much longer. With my new flexible extension that maintains its shape, doing the clamps was simple...no more fears of getting frustrated taking off the plenums !

Interestingly enough, my 2 gear no longer blinks a couple of times as I shift from 1st to 2nd as it has done since I got it last year and the idle is also much smoother as well as less engine noise when idling. Makes me wonder if it was struggling to match the revs needed to shift normally and also throwing things off by the butterflies not being in the right position.

That should work fine. As long as it doesn't dry up or harden after being exposed to heat.

I am having this problem and was about to check the hose on the carbon tank in the rear wheel well for a lose hose. You don't happen to know the part number for this item do you, is it just one or two? Is there a DIY on this or picture some where showing where these are located?

Possible disregard on above, is this what you are talking about?

Do your idle actuators and fuel purge valves while you are there the more you disassemble the plenum the more likely you will experience your EGR to run lean due to deviation or air intake you create while you open her belly. Technically every service involving plenum should better do it all at once to minimize the deviation set from the factory

In addition, i suggest you chnge the fuel purge valves hosed to the idle actuator. They are dc valve to open and close by DME and spring locking mechanism. When you have this valve aged, the valve got stuck open ever so slightly to cause you a great deal of headache. If your beast often driven only during the weekend and not dailied. The greater chane your valve can get stuck open.

Good find, Jen. This is what I was referring to. The part number should be 13907835364 and you will need two of them.
