2000 Chevrolet Malibu 3.1L Engine Knock

I have a Malibu with what sounds like the famous piston slap, however it doesnt go away. I replaced the lifters because I had to replace a leaking intake gasket anyway. It has new plugs and wires and has always made the sound even before replacing them. It sounds like it's coming from the top of the engine however I am open to any and all diagnostics. Please leave a comment. Thanks

Fix It Right! - Intake Manifold Gasket Replacement
Fix It Right! - Intake Manifold Gasket Replacement (S1E4) Demonstrated on a 2004 Buick Century 3.1L V6 FWD. In this video, we demonstrate how to perform an intake manifold gasket replacement on a front-wheel-drive 3.1L V6 engine, in this case in a 2004 Buick Century.

About the "Fix It Right!" video series: "Fix It Right!" is a series of how-to videos intended to give do-it-yourselfers basic instructions on proper vehicle repair and maintenance. All of our videos show real repairs being performed on real vehicles by real technicians in a real auto shop. (Repairs are filmed and shown with the permission of the vehicles' owners.) Although there may be more than one way to perform any particular repair (and in many cases there are lots of ways!) we try to focus on the methods that will be safest and most expedient for DIYers with limited access to tooling and equipment. We will also occasionally be showing repair processes that are too complex or dangerous for DIY, or require specialized tooling, expertise, equipment, and/or certifications. Those episodes will highlight the importance of hiring a professional auto technician for tasks that are not DIY-friendly, and demonstrate why such tasks are best left to professionals.

2000 Chevy Malibu MAF Ground problem
This is a good video on how to check sensor grounds using a voltmeter. Once you get more comfortable with this type of testing, it is far more accurate than the ohmmeter. The key though is to make sure the circuit you are testing is "loaded". Also to all of you "free diagnostics" parts supply companies. YOU CANNOT CHANGE A PART BASED ON A TROUBLE CODE!!!!!
