Soop, (name ???)
I have seen several 3.4's with that problem and every one turned out to be leaking intake manifold gaskets. I would suggest that he take the intake back off and replace the gaskets, using GM gaskets and the factory torque specs and pattern. There is also a vacuum hose that runs under the manifold on some cars, it could be loose and causing a vacuum leak.
Hope this helps,

You missed Bills hint!! What's your name? Screen names are fun but most of us really like using at least first names. Just end your post like a letter with a name you want to be called.
