Yes, replace the MAF, then check if the lean condition goes away. It should.
MAF's are sensitive to cleaning. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't.

Typically newer GM models have the mass air flow sensor in line from the induction hose that goes to the throttle body from the air filter box.Many are just held in place by hose clamps requiring either a ratchet with a 5/16 socket or a standard screwdriver to loosen it.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for the help..trying to save some money and do it my self...hope it doesn't end costing me more because I'm going to try it my self."
on the back of the throttle butterfly is a sensor that controls the amount of fuel and it has carbon paths inside it ands i think this is the one causing your problem ,
