    What is the code number you get? PO????. I can help more if I knew the copde number. If it truly a vacuum, leak you can spray starting fluid on your vacuum hoses while it is running. When you notice an increase in RPM you have found the leak. Start with that first or look the code up on the net. Here's a good link for you.http://www.obd-codes.com/trouble_codes/

If you have a vacuum leak, lift the hood and listen for a whistling sound. If none detected, gently move the vacuum hoses and see if your motor surges or starts to die. Last resort is using carb cleaner spray. Sparringly, spray quick, short bursts in and around vaccum lines. Never spray alot at once and not over and over. Let the spray evaporate. This may lead you to the leak by being patient. Engine will surge when you are close to the leak.

Start engine, and spray carb cleaner around the area you suspect the leak is, when you hit the spot the engine will speed up and identify the leak location. Good luck.

The way to stop the check engine light is to pull the error code(s) from the computer and resolve what is indicated. REMEMBER the code is a CLUE and not necessarily the issue, for example, an intake leak can cause a oxygen sensor to register out of range....
The light would reset automatically, in absence of errors.

Took my car to a parts store and was told i had a vaccumm leak so now i need a diagram to find the leak


I am assuming they scanned the codes and pulled the code associated with the check engine light? And this is what told them you had a vacuum leak? Is the vacuum leak associated with any type of system like your ac isnt working properly or something or the car is running poorly? You can inspect most of your vacuum hoses without a diagram and you can use a mighty vac to test them to make sure they are good. Just visually inspect them and look for cracked and damaged hoses and replace them.

Replacing the EGR valve, its actuator, or your DPFE sensor could all be at fault. I would probably start with the valve itself since it's an EGR leak code. Your gas cap was a wasted repair. The gas cap would cause a P0441 or 445 evap code, but not an EGR code.

The check engine light is on.


Sometimes disconnecting the battery for a few minutes will reset the check engine light. Make sure you have the correct radio code before doing this or your radio will not work after disconnecting the battery.
