But the biggest lesson was about fuel trim an how it is affected by vacuum leaks. I am convinced you have one, and should monitor your fuel trim to help diagnose. That's how I was able to narrow mine down.

Time to have my tune adjusted now.

Lemme know if you need any tips. I am going to work on my smoke tester again to see if I can make it work.
Whoa. Missing hose? What you mean forgotten?

I've had an aweful lot of eyes and hands in my car including mine.

It just wasn't connected. I missed it too, felt like an idiot when I saw it half buried under wiring and other bs.

But it was more about being able to see the problem on my gauges/fuel trim. It was plain as day that there was a leak. Just needed to open my eyes to see it. Lol

For all of you who I've driven crazy with this, this might make you laugh.

Or resent me more.

Chris and Scott would agree. lmao
