Thanks for the advice! I did have a severely leaking lower intake
manifold leak on both sides. I replaced the upper and lower gaskets
and fixed that problem...However, when I put her all back together,
I’m coming across another problem.
I took it for a test drive, and it didn’t have the large surges that
it had before (assume it was because I’m not loosing vacuum from the
intake). When the car warmed up, and I attempted to speed up (in a
passing scenario) it wouldn’t respond. I could put the pedal to the
floor, and it was just creep up, very slowly.
Also, when it was cold, it would idle at around 500-700 RPM...but when
it warmed up, it jumped to 1500RPM for idle.
I did get a check engine light a couple times and the error code was
to check the TPS. I checked the TPS with my Volt Meter a few times,
per the instructions, and came back with good results.
I have also checked the vacuum on the PVC valve, and it seems to be
It has brand new spark plugs, as of a month ago, and I changed the
spark plu wires last year...
I’m really stumped...any ideas?
Thanks a bunch!
