How To Find A Vacuum Leak - EricTheCarGuy
Vacuum leaks are one of the biggest causes of engine performance problems. This video is pretty straight forward in it's approach to finding a vacuum leak. On thing I might mention is that not all vacuum leaks are at the engine. Some HVAC systems run on engine vacuum and can cause a leak under the dash in some cases. I've even seen vacuum operated door locks. Just be sure to be careful spraying flammable stuff on a hot engine, you don't want to take one problem and make it a whole lot worse. You can also use a spray bottle with water to do this same test. It may not be as effective, but you don't have to worry about spraying a flammable substance on a hot engine.

My "new" 1995 Eagle Talon (intro)
Just a brief intro to my 1995 Eagle Talon that I bought for $600.00 USD. When I bought it it had a major idle issue. It wouldn't stay running unless you kept your foot on the accelerator either in park or in gear. It was really bad in gear. (I know I said that I kept my foot on the brake in the video ... LOL) I have no plans of turning this into a race car or tuner. I want to keep it as stock as possible. Maybe some performance mods, but I really doubt it. :) Since buying it, I've replaced the IAC (Idle Air Control valve), the CPS (Cam Position Sensor), the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) and the MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor). It's running a lot better, but still has an idle issue. Doing the CEL (Check Engine Light) code retrieval, it comes up with a code 11. This references the Crankshaft Position Sensor. It could be a bad unit or, since the timing belt, water pump and radiator were replaced before I got it, the timing belt could have jumped one tooth or more. I haven't gotten around to checking that yet. Hope I don't have to. LOL But I will be documenting each service or repair that I do as I work on it. I hope to be able to share what knowledge I have of this vehicle, albeit limited for now, to maybe help others who might be running into the same problems or scenarios. Let me know what y'all think. Thanks for watching. Leave a comment, suggestion or idea. - Mike
