I am not sure about your exact car. Im sorry, but I dont know EVERYTHING. However most vac leaks are caused by a hose. If not the hose then by a loose intake manifold, or bad manifold gasket. Sometimes the manifold itself can crack.

The EASIEST way I have found to run down a vac leak is to buy a can of SPRAY carb cleaner, most autoparts stores have this stuff. With the engine running spray the carb cleaner near suspected leak sites. The ends of hoses, down along the intake gaskets, pretty much anywhere air can go. When you find the leak your engine will SPUTTER. Sometimes it will even die. Carb cleaner doesnt burn that great apparantly and when it gets SUCKED IN to the fuel air mix it throws it off.

Once you find the site of your leak the fixes are pretty easy. From what I have read recently alot of people seem to be getting away with just tightening bolts this winter. I dont know if the sudden change in temp or just everyones cars seem to be about the same age.

Anyhow thats how I find intake leaks.

I hope this helps

Vovo 2003 s60 , I feel engine vibrates on low RPM that is when not prissin the gas , RPM always goes less than it should stay , about 600 to 400 RPM for 2-3 seconds then it goes to normal ! I changed fuel...

no, you shouldnt have to clean it every week. it sounds like your pcv system is clogged. you have to replace the pcv box and hoses. and clean out all of the gunk clogging up the ports in the block. and it is probably a good idea to replace the intake manifold gaskets and the injector seals. also there is a banjo bolt on the bottom of the intake manifold that gets clogged up so clean the banjo bolts and all attached hoses

Ford focus 1.6 zitec petrol, engine warning light flashing, engine chugging, very high fuel consumption, fumes smell when stationary, exhaust seems ok, recently change speed sensor and coil pack?

try the air filter first and the intake.the spark plugs then and after all go to a garage for checking compression timing and the head gasket.

2001 Volvo V70 air conditioning quits after 10-20 mins.

It's most likely a vacuum hose...they're the small hoses that provide pressure...have you noticed if sometimes it will blow harder than others? and at other times it seems to fix itself? if so then it probably is a hose...easy fix, you can get a replacement hose at any parts store!

2001 volvo s60 2.4 turbo misfire

  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty camshaft position sensor
  • fuel filter and fuel
  • the p0300 car's computer has detected that one of the engine's cylinders is not firing p0301 In this case it's cylinder #1.p0302 In this case it's cylinder #2.and so on i would check the three listed above first then check
  • Faulty spark plugs or wires
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty or plugged fuel injector
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  • Stuck/blocked EGR valve
  • Defective computer Random misfires that jumps around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak that may be a broken hose or in the intake manifold (gasket,spary aruond it with wd40 or starer fluid if the engine idle goes high theres your problem) or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open. hope this helps

    should be a little single wire connected to the air filter box. located on the clean side of the air filter. if not it will be between the air filter box and the throttle plate usually located on the air duct hose going from the air filter box to the throttle plate.
