There's a valve with a cable that runs through it and a vacum hose that leads to the intake. It's located near the firewall. When I push in and out, it'll start. This happened a couple of times but, now all the time.

You may have a vacuum leak. The leak may be at the intake manifold (upper or lower) or any of the vacuum lines leading to the various sensors or the brake booster (larger hose leading from the upper intake to the large round device behind the master cylinder near the firewall on the drivers side). You should find (usually) a vacuum line diagram affixed to the underside of the hood near the front, or on the framing near the radiator. Also listen for a tell-tale hissing when the engine is running this may help you locate the leak. Hope this helps you.
i believe that there should be an emission sticker under the hood that shows emission components and vacume hose routing.if you look at it it should show you the area the egr is located.usually located in the centre of the motor on the back side of the intake(towards the firewall side of the intake)
Depands on year and model. Early models have a cable with directs the vent openings. If early check cable has not come off behind the sliding knob or more common the cable is broken. If later model usually controled by vacum. Check behind dash for hoses connected. First check under bonnet on passenger side near firewall. Look to see if small vacum hose has not come off or is cracked. It is about 3/4mm (1/4inch) thick. It runs into the cabin through the fire wall. Inside the car it is behind the turn knob in the dash. Again check hose and connections. I have even found them fallen off under the passenger side dash, people kick the hoses without realising. I hope this helps
Sounds as if its a thermostat problem. If your engine temperature is staying normal it could be a valve not opening up to let the water circulate through your heater hoses. Usually located in one hose near the firewall of the car and has a vacum hose attached to it its desieghned to cut off the heat for colder A/C
Sounds like a broken or torn vacum hose, pcv valve clogged, or bad Idle air control motor. Did you spray carb cleaner on vacum hoses or near the plastic intake., and did the motor rev up or down? Those codes represent a lean condition which means most like a vacum leak or clogged idle air motor. Sometimes the intake manifolds crack or the intake manifold gaskets crack. FInd that vacum leak or inpect iac motor
when your at a light and apply the brakes does the running get worse? if so you have a vacum leak. there is a temperature switch should be installed in the intake near where the top hose from the radiator goes in the motor this is like a 15 buck part. this will have 3 to 5 vacum lines to it make sure that these are not cracked or split and are all hooked up. one of these goes to your distributor check this hose.
another place that can cause this is in the air intake system there is a airflow meter this will create these kinds of problems as well. with the car hot and running pulle the hose off of one side of this and see where the butterfly valve is located it should be almost full open if not replace it
Do you have enough antifeeze in your cooling system. If not fill & check again for heat. You may have a blockage. If so remove the in & out hoses to the heater core on firewall. Be careful not to damage core. Use a garden hose to flush the core one side to the other untill running clear water. put one hose on tight & clamp, put other on loose. Have someone start engine & slowly remove loose hose to let air escape. when fluid appears put hose on & tighten. Refill rad & resevoir. Heat engine up & check for heat. Also heat cable may be off under dash.
