Question about 2006 Saturn ION

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Saturn Ion 2. My check engine light is on whit codes P0171 and P0106. My car is running rough, and likes to stall at lights, stop signs, traffic jams etc. (anytime it's idling). There is an audible hissing sound coming from the engine, leading me to believe that there is a vacuum leak. I can not find a leak and I don't have any money to take this to the dealer or a shop. Anyone know alikely spot to check for a vacuum leak?

Remove the housing that covers the engine block and look behind the engine block, up against the firewall towards the bottom of the block there are some vaccum hoses(this is easier to get too if the car is up in the air, or lifted on jack stands) get yourself a aerosall can of brake cleaner and lightly spay around all the hoses til you find your leak( the vehicle must be running) be very careful cause the fluid you spray can catch fire if it hits the exhaust manifold when it gets hot. good luck
