Question about 1994 Suzuki Sidekick
First off DO NOT START or DRIVE this vehicle until this leak is fixed. It is a fireball waiting to happen!
Replace your EGR valve. You might be able to save it by cleaning with carbuertor cleaner but likely not if it is leaking "from the diaphragm" already, but try the $5 can of cleaner first instead of the $100 part if I were you. 2nd leak reported from the exhaust manifold area is likely from the leaking EGR valve. Replace or fix the valve first, then let the existing gasoline pooled on top of your engine evaporate before starting the car. Just starting it could set off the flashpoint of the pooled gasoline from your igntion system spark. Once the fuel has evaportated and you have fixed or replaced your EGR valve, start it and run for several minutes. Use a mirror and flashlight to make sure you do not have another leak somewhere. Good luck and be careful!
