Keep checking for the vacuum leak. It's after the MAF somewhere. Start the car, open the hood and get start moving hoses around, listen for hissing/leak. You can spray some carb cleaner around and you idle should increase. Worst case you can have the car smoke tested at your local garage.

Thank you , I will give it a try.


I tried moving vac. hoses around and spraying. Also I tried spraying near the intake manifold, MAF sensor base,etc and no increase whatsoever in R. P.M. About 8 months ago it thru the same code but went away after a couple of days( and cleaning the MAF sensor.I used MAF cleaner spray) Mike
