    Default Vacuume Leaks...

    Any of y'all had issues with vaccume leaks from around the canister area? I've got a long time whistler and shops blame everything else I've modded and won't fix it, so I'm gonna replace I guess some v-lines when I get her back. Is there any prescribed method to check out which actual line might be leaking? Thanks MJrs!

    I cannot spell vaccume ever without spell check, that word destroys me time and again!

    Get some dawn dish soap, water, and a spray bottle. Try to find the general area of the noise and start hosing it down while running. Don't just soray everything, do it line by line. It will either suck it in and cause a rough idle or it will make happy bubbles.

    Forgive my stupidness.......
    Being vacuum lines, wouldn't they be sucking air into the line? If yes, there's not going to be any bubbles. I've always been told to use carb cleaner. Spray it in the area you think there's a leak. You'll know you're on the leak when the engine rpms start to increase.
    When you start looking, start looking at the rubber boots on the hoses. Those are more prone to breaking down and causing a leak. Don't forget to check the little black box that's near your battery as well. Should have a hose that runs into the side of it. Aside from vacuum hoses, you might want to check around your intake manifold as well. I had a bad gasket that whistled pretty loud.
