I have a 2007 chevy aveo ls has a vacumn leak sometimes changes gears rough then other times changes just right. cant find vacumn leak. please help.

Most of your vac lines are located close to the throttle body or on top of the motor. The sucking sound you hear when the hood is closed may be the air going through the intake hose and box (smaller cars tend to make more air flow noise than others). If the trans is missing or not shifting properly you may want to look at the neutral safety switch. If your car seems to go and shift fine between 1st and 2nd gear and then it seems like it is guessing then this will be your best bet. You can always install it and if the problem persist then you can take it back, just bee sure to keep your receipt. If it is not that then you may be looking at an internal issue (most newer transmissions are computer controlled and do not use vacuum pressure to shift or downshift like older transmissions).

Let me know if there is any new information or if the fix works.

I need a vac line an hose diagram for 98 blazer

this hose might go to your intake manifold vacuum source, it should go to a vacuum modulator on the transmission. it changes shifting based on the engine load.
good luck

My 1996 Mitsubishi Montero will start but not idle at all once driven. My father-in-law suggests adding some Sea-foam to the vacuum hose and the gas tank to help. My question is; where do I find the...

Back in the good old days, engines had various vac hoses that controlled other devices including the PCV valve. The idea was to use one of the vac hoses to pull SeaFoam directly into the intake and help clean deposits off the intake valves.
Today's engines have very few such hoses.
And in your case, the problem is probably dirty injectors or the throttle body itself.
So I would put the seafoam in the gas tank, but also check the throttle body to see if it is gummed up. You can use spray carb cleaner if it needs to be cleaned.

I have a 1990 ford 460 EFI cylinders 1,2,6 has no change or little in RPM when spark plug wires removed.The three spark plugs has black carbon on them. I replaced them with new ones with new wires.Co

check that the egr valve is not stuck open remove it and cover the hole on the intake side and see if it goes away or with engine running remove the vac line from the valve and install a short length of hose and suck on the hose to draw a vac on the valve it only takes 3-5 inches of vac to open it the engine should stall or run even worse if it is not stuck and if it was stuck open you didnt change anything

Was driving down son's dirt road driveway returning home at low speed in 2nd gear in my 1997 sunfire when it suddenly started running rough with no power. it will start right up and idle is rough but...

Sure sounds like a typical case of dirty/contaminated fuel....or a broken vacumn supply hose around the intake manifold area, in neutral let it idl;e and look and listen for a hissing sound, or a broken black rubber hose.
Also have the computer scanned for any possible codes.
Another thing to look at is the catalyctic converter, put a vac. gauge on the engine and see if the vac drops to almost zero...indicating a plugged cat.

There is a air line supposed to hook up to the oil filler cap and goes to where? And also to check the timing where do you hook up the timing light and do you have to plug any vaccum hoses, also what is...

There's a rubber hose that goes from the oil fill cap to either the air cleaner or to the air intake hose between the air cleaner and the throttle body. It's for the PCV system. There's also a small filter inside the air cleaner on some models, and another hose and PCV valve that goes from the valve cover to the intake manifold. There should be a emissions system sticker under the hood some where that shows all the lines, and lists the specs for spark plugs and ignition timing. You hook the timing light to the #1 spark plug wire, disconnect and plug the vacuum line to the distributor. Set timing to 10 degrees BTDC.

Vacuum line or spark plugs?

If the vac. line went to the distributer cap you need to get a new 1 take off the line and take it to the auto parts store and get a new 1. What that vac. line does is adjust the timing when you give the car gas. Did he make shur to gap the plugs to the wright gap? If he did and you put a new vac. line on check all of the vac. line if they have cracks change them. If the still runs ruff he might have moved the distributer, or he might have got the wires wrong if he changed the spark plug wires. Change the vac. lines first they are cheap.

1992 Subaru Loyale - Rough idol when in gear

Since changing the motor didn't help, it makes me think the motor mounts or even possibly the transmission mount might be at fault. The engine is not actually idling rough, if it was it wouldn't care what gear your in because that has nothing to do with engine idle. The engine and trans mounts are the only components that shield the occupants of the vehicle from the engines natural harmonic resonance. If the mounts are starting to give out, there ability to dampen vibration diminishes greatly. I hope this info helps in your diagnosis...
