My 99 gmc yukon recently started acting up on my way home from work. I barely made it home. When I have foot on gas ok when I take it off it starts shaking alot and hesitates. I used a scanner and found codes misfire codes maf sensor and o2 sensor bank 2 sensor 1 I changed the maf sensor changed o2 sensor and also did a complete tune up and also changed the fuel filter plugs wires dist cap eveything put in new gas. Still acting up took to local shop and they could not figure out the problem now my only choice is to take to dealer.
