2000 Mitsubishi eclipse gt p0170 Sign In

Hi there! I have a 2000 Mitsubishi eclipse gt with the 3.0 v6. 137k miles. I did a tune up on the vehicle (spark plugs and an intake manifold gasket) after the tune up it started running really rough and I got a p0170 code (fuel trim malfunction in bank one) idle raises and drops and I cant go past 80 mph. I unplugged the maf sensor and it started popping out of the exhaust. I'm redoing vacuum lines right now. Any ideas? Tia.

How about make a post when you finish putting it back together see if the thing works properly?
There's just nothing to say on this yet sport,

You don't have a fuel trim malfunction. The code is telling you that the computer has compensated the fuel mixture to it's limits. It doesn't specify whether it's to the rich limit of the lean limit so if you run it long enough, it should set some more specific codes.
