Its a very long story. But make sure your map sensor hole is drilled through into the manifold. Been stuck for months with engine stalling with no codes. Turned out to be a simple manufacturer defect.. i used to trust dorman.. now not so much.
Please lmk if i help you or youve seen before.

I received notice from GM about this. They said if you were experiencing any of the symptoms to take it to a certified dealership for repairs. I had some of the misfire, jerking while stopping, lunging, etc., but no check engine light. I called the dealership and they want to charge $100-$150 just to take a look and determine if that is truly the cause. I don’t trust that they would actually tell the truth about it, and say the cause was something else.

Welcome to the forum.

Diagnostics aren't free. Is there a reason that you are so untrusting?

I agree! Thats the average price of diag
I was a service advisor for a decade. When I would get a customer who would complain about diagnostic charges, the conversation would almost always go like this:

ME: "Do you work for free, Mr. Smith?"

Customer: "No, of course not".

ME: "Our technicians don't either, and they deserve to be compensated for the hard work that they do."

Customer: "OK, let me know what you find."

The dealership I bought the car from was not forthcoming with issues with the vehicle.

To be far, the dealer was probably unaware of the issues with the vehicle when you purchased it. The reason that I say this, is because if the vehicle had obvious issues when you test drove and purchased the car, you wouldn't have bought it.

What the general population does not understand is that even the most skilled technician won't know that a vehicle has issues if the vehicle is not "acting up" at the time.

Yeah been there. As a technician i would apperciate hearing that one ahha!
The Dorman has space for one MAP, the 2011 has two. You used a part that isn’t for your car.
I get that but it wouldnt work on a 2012 either since the hole into the intake manifold wasnt drilled all the way in. For the baro sensor i just zip tied it up since all it does it measure atmosphere. Doesnt need to be in the manifold. My point is the hole for the baro was there but didnt have any pressure from the intake going into it. Make sense?

Napa also has a “fixed” intake, described on their know how site. It has a retaining piece that sounds a lot like how I’m hearing the Dorman one described. Mine (NAPA) arrives tomorrow. Obviously, I shouldn’t have much to say about it’s function anytime soon.
A very long story short, I was able to obtain a special coverage that was similar to B2B until 106K Mi, because my cars a turd and I’ve had just about every problem at least twice. That turns into a pumpkin in less than 1k. It wouldn’t be any stretch to say I’ve had almost all problems I have seen mention, a few twice, and some more, especially anything that involves the engine needing a tight seal. Even 2 front mains.
The Napa part # NOE 60215541. It’s late and I don’t remember the rules here about links so I’ll say search “ 1.4 ecotec oil burning napa” and it should show up at or near the top. I’m hoping replacing my intake early will save me at least from having to do a front main on my dime. NAPA take credit for the fix on theirs, don’t know how that compares to the Dorman model.

That is a Dorman intake with a napa part number. Look at the symbol on the top of the manifold.....
