You're experiencing the placebo affect. Unless you throw a CEL, the MAF is functioning fine. Cleaning a non-CEL indicating MAF won't change a thing that it's reporting to the PCM.

I wouldn't refer to a tuner as "fancy" and I WOULD refer to a chip as a waste of money on these engines.

What did the shop do? Sounds like a blocked valve which may be resolved by a simple flush or a reverse flush. But then, I don't know automatics these days.

That's a relatively new one to me. Perhaps someone that has done a shifter mod on their auto can sell you the parts you need. Let's hope someone steps up.

How do you manage to have a 2008 still under warranty? Do you mean an extended warranty?

The 4.0 may simply have a harmonic at low rpm's. IIRC, my wife's 4.0 has a little shake at some low rpm.

I havent kept up with prices but that may be a fair price for an '08 v6, depending on its condition. I belive the decal you're referring to is part of an appearance package option.
