Re: CORRELATION VACCUM LEAK P0068
P0068 - Throttle Body Airflow Performance (PCM) (Vacuum leak) Take a can of carberator spray and spray it around the unpper intake area and near the throttle valve housing, listen for the engine to make a different sound, when it does you have found the leak. It may be minor or major there is no way to know. If you can't find any vacuum leaks replace the MAF sensor.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

(in this my example is done on ford, however it can be performed on any make and model) Being unfamiliar with cars can be a great pain in the ***. Especially when changing spark plugs, and spark plug wires. If not familiar with specific vehicle firing order the best way to prevent cross wiring, and confusion is to change them one cylinder at a time. After purchasing the spark plug wires the first thing that needs to be done is organization. I like to sort the wires from shortest to longest, matting the like ones as I go. This step makes the next step a lot more simple than going at it unorganized. Next as you are taking off an old wire simply match it with the proper length, and replace it before moving on to the next one. Since you are doing this one by one, taking the old one, and comparing it to the new one will be a great help to determine what length to use. Don't pretend to be a wizard by removing all plugs, and wires at once acting as if it is an easy task to remember where they all go. The only easy thing about this task is realizing how easy it is to mis-wire your vehicle. After you come to this realization the next thing noticed is how difficult it is to wire a vehicle correctly without taking my tip and doing it one step at a time....
One more great tip before I end this, always check for proper spark plug gapping. You can do this by purchasing a feelers gage aka spark plug gapping tool. Purchasing one is even more easier. All you have to do is go to a local parts store, and buy a tool that fits right on your key chain!!! How simple is that?
I really don't have any greatly detailed step by step procedures here. In the pictures below is you can figue out how to remove the different items (cover plate, cental console...) do it in order by number stated below the picture. Also in the laxt picture, there is a picture of the SRS-ECU (electronic control unit for the airbags). Be VERY VERY careful not to jar it or bump it.....be careful on other words. Make sure you disconnect the negative battery terminal before you start but there is still stored energy in the vehicle and on your vehicle I have seen a couple of times when the SRS-ECU was bumped the air bags deploying by accident. I have some factory Mitsubishi service manuals on PDF at my shop and if I remember (I'll try), will look to see if there is anything about removing the center console & will post if there is anything. The other stuff is pretty easy if you are mechanically inclinde. Hope this helps a little anyway....
If you are going to attempt something serious like a blown head gasket, you need to buy a service manual to get all the step by step instructions you will need to do it right. You can usually find one on the ebay motors for a reasonable price.
I know you would like a step by step instruction, but that would take more space than what this site allows and even then I would miss something since I don't have the manual for your vehicle only a disk that isn't near as complete as the manual. Sorry, but that is how I feel!
If you are planning on replacing plug wires on a Discovery this solution will help. This task requires minimal tools, with fair to moderate mechanical skills. I'm not going to do a step by step instruction, but just point out some things to be aware of. 1) Coolant pipe in to manifold must be removed. It has a small o-ring you may want to replace . Removal caused minimal coolant loss. 2) You may have to loosen th 8mm bolts at the lower portion of the coil bracket and let it lean towards the firewall, this will allow for easier installation of the air plenum. 3) The black bracket which sits on top of the coil bracket and holds the secondary air pipe can be assembled onto the secondary air pipe loosely prior to installing the air plenum. 4) Wire Loom : Utilize these looms to preset layout order of the wires. Attach to secondary air pipe. This will allow for an easy install into the looms on the rear of the air plenum, since they'll be in order. 5) A little bit of Nye Lubricant on the o-ring for the coolant pipe. Hope this helps. Take care..
Its pretty simple.
1. take off wheel
2. take off brake caliper, caliper bracket, and rotor.
3. remove axle nut which secures axle into the bearing
4. should be 3 bolts on the flange which hold the whole wheel bearing/hub unit on.
5. reverse for reassembly
The wheel hub and bearing are all one assembly and are bout as a unit.
Figured I would try and be a little more helpful than emmissionwiz... Your first step is finding your starter. You can follow your battery cable and elctrical wires to it. It is on the lower end of the engine and back by transmission. (passenger side most likely) The starter also has a solenoid that is attached to the side of it. Next step is removing the old starter. It should be held on by only two or three bolts (most likely 9/16) Remove the starter and the wires attached to the starter making sure to remember where they are attached. Once removed you will be able to see your starter has teeth that slide into place and crank the flywheel to start your car. Compare the old starter to the new starter to make sure it is the correct one and attach the same way it was removed sliding into place carefully. (NOTE: You may have to use a shim kit which will come with the replacement starter in order to have proper clearance between the starter teeth and flywheel) Hope this helps, I have never replaced one on a Rendezvous so I am not sure how easy the starter is to get to and disconnect. Good luck! Replacing your starter is not a hard task, it is just one that you have to keep at until it is done trying not to get too frustrated if you have any problems. Let me know how it goes...
You might want to call an inexpensive mechanic out to take care of that. Almost any mechanic can handle this simple task without a shop. But as someone who has to ask how to do this, I'm afraid I can't tell you to do it, because you can burn your car down, possibly wiht you in it. Sorry.
