Lol got a buddy that actually is the one who dumps chlorine-fluoride and something else into the city’s water supply!
I bought a 300 gallon tote of him and it’s labled all over the place highly toxic poison corrosive and I’m like that goes into the water!?
Glad I’m on a well

I wonder if moving the MAF closer to the tube walls reports lower airflow? Though that would probably make it run worse, not better. Not sure why they would have done that.

Guess whoever it was that did that needed gasket material, the air freshener all he was able to find that might work, and he didnt have any scissors handy to trim it down??


--- or he wanted his engine to breathe freshened air so it would run sweeter?

I should have cleared this up long time ago Tom. Lol. My name is Isaac Griffith. I actually put it in my signature when you called me Jim a while ago. It's no problem. My forum name came from back when I had my 04 lly. Instead of calling it a g m c, I jokingly pronounced it Jim -C. Bad idea to use it as a screen name in hindsight.

I am the mechanic at our family owned used truck dealership.

I am going to go with the mechanic was a bit old school. Why buy gasket material when a kellogg's box will work. Broke down on the side of the road, freezing cold (or hotter than h*!!) and the only thing readily available is that little Christmas tree hanging from he rear view mirror. Cut a crude hole in it, slap it in place, and forget about it until you open the hood to check the oil or probably change it in that case. Then you remember that you don't have the proper o-ring for it and think I will pick up one during the week. This leads to the ground hod day syndrome where it never gets fixed b/c you never have the o-ring needed and forget about it during the week. At some point it becomes comic and if it ant broke don't mess with it.

Maybe its an old mechanics trick to "freshen" up the engine, getting it ready for sell. Or maybe a better way to pass smog in California
