  • Shepherd Said:
For what is worth my 2015 Malibu is quiet even with the hood open. More of an issue is deposit build up on the intake valves as they are no longer exposed to fuel flow.

That is no joke either! I pulled the intake manifold on my 2011 M56S at 90K and cleaned the intake valves and ports using crushed walnut media blasting and B12 carb cleaner. Difference was night and day. I had tried two chemical cleaners through the PCV ports before I ended up pulling the intake. It cleaned the intake ports on the front 4 cylinders and deposited all that gunk directly on top of the intake valves as a messy gooey gummy deposit.
