Are your symptoms the same as having a leak in the intake manifold if so I would check out the function of the differential pressure feedback exhaust (DPFE) sensor in conjunction with the exhaust gas recirculation EGR valve downstream of it. If the EGR is left open it compromises the intake manifold vacuum by keeping open the feed pipe from the exhaust. For this reason the DPFE is supposed to keep it closed during the initial start and warm up of the engine. If it genuinely is a vacuum leak I would be methodical and disconnect each manifold vacuum tube one at a time and block the hole to register the change in engine activity. By reinstating each tube and then moving on to the next one you will eventually hit on the tube that is guilty of the leak.

Where is the PVC Valve located on a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix

It's under the MAP sensor in the upper plenum. You need to remove the MAP sensor by turning it ¼- turn while pushing down. Remove the sensor and the PCV should be under that. Reach in with needle nose pliers to grab it.
REMOVAL PROCEDURE: Remove the injector sight shield from the fuel rail and intake. Remove the MAP sensor. Use a 16 mm socket to press the access cover down and rotate 1/4 turn counterclockwise. Remove the access cover. Remove the PCV valve and the O-ring from the intake manifold.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE: Install the crankcase ventilation valve ; replace the O-ring if necessary. Install the access cover. Install the MAP sensor. Install the sight shield.

Good write up on charging the AC system. Unfortunately, the 2002-2006 Fort Thunderbird has a low-side valve that is impossible to find. The high-side is easily located and convenient. Any suggestions...

Hello, From what I have read it is down at the compressor and you may have to go under the car to connect to it. One article says it is on a bottom compressor line and another says its on top of the compressor.

Just when I thought they might bring back the sight glass on the A/C, they move the A/C fittings.

Brakes dont stop suburban till I push real hard

Check brake system. Resurface brake rotors. Replace pads. Check drums and shoes. Fush system. I use cross drilled rotors and carbon fiber pads. Stop in a hurry. Some Suburbans (94 and up) have slow ABS units that take their time to allow brakes to activate.

What age? What Mileage?

Brake hoses go bad and either prevent brakes from operating or prevent them from pulling back after being applied. Had this problem too.

Also check for vaccuum leaks. TBI engines had a loose metal tube under the TBI unit. I had a vaccuum leak and had to tighten my tube 6 times @ 1/4 turn each. Solved problem.

Try to use some liquid around vaccuum hoses and see if idle changes. Non TBI engines have plastic intake issues.

Check check valve in vaccuum booster. My was bad too.

Molded hose neeed to be replaced. I used two hoses and a brake booster filter in the HELP section to make the 90 degree turn from the hard line to the check valve.

93 Suburban 2WD. Runs great now. 16 mpg city.

No heat in my 2002 chevy s-10. Already changed

The heat is controled by a control valve installed in one of the heater hoses. It normally is controled by eather a vaccuum line or a cable coming from inside the truck at the dash where you slide the hot to cold adjustment.Find the valve under the hood at the hose,have someone move the control inside the truck.If its vaccuum you can pull off the hose and see if you have vac.If its a cable you should se it move.
