The EGR valve may be the cause of your vacuum leak. It has an internal diaphagm that can break.

The best way to check for a vacume leak

Start the car and take a can of brake cleaner and spray around areas where vacuum lines connect to the engine. If the engine speeds up when you spray the brake cleaner, there's a leak in that area.

Engine light is on replaced oxygen sensors ,comp comes up bank 2 sensor one also says burning lean,

Try using brake parts cleaner and spraying around all vacuum lines on the engine and firewall, and spraying around the intake manifold gasket. You may have a vacuum leak or low fuel pressure causing it to run lean. An obvious leak will change the rpm's of the motor.

Suburban runs lean with K&N air filter

Check for vacuum leaks, especially around the intake manifold gasket. You can do this by running the engine and spraying intake cleaner around the gasket. Any vacuum leak will **** in the intake cleaner and cause the idle to change.

It could also be a dirty Mass Air Flow sensor, faulty oxygen sensor on bank 2, plugged catalytic converter, or plugged or faulty fuel injectors - thus, it would never hurt trying the sea foam.

Also ensure the filter is not over-oiled

Everytime i stop for a long or short time the car will cut off i replace the spark plugs and wires and the roader cap and ball

Possible vacuum leak. Use a can of carb cleaner spray to check for vacuum leaks. Remove air cleaner housing assembly and plug the vacuum line. Start car. While idling in park, spray cleaner around base of carb, intake manifold to head area and around all vacuum lines. If the idle increases or smooths while spraying an area, that is where the vacuum leak is.

very important oem or aftermarket 02........ big difference... one trouble shooting tech is to fill tank use mid grade gas and add to bottles of injector cleaner addative to tank clear code and run see if still same code..... also make sure plugs are basic plugs no high dollar split fire or so..if still no good get a name brand can carb cleaner... with car running.. open intake and spray cleany continously while you work the throttle with the other hand .. keep it just barely running this will burn off any carbon and clean 02's... even new ones... if still prob write me back for more steps
