Using a T though doesn't really eliminate anything as it doesn't interrupt the vacuum circuit. I'm suggesting that you cap off the vacuum line to the EGR valve to take that out of the circuit,...

Certainly a vacuum leak could cause a misfire. It may or may not cause a check engine light or diagnostic code to be set/stored. If the vacuum leak is large enough it can cause a code for a lean...

Looks like in 2006 the manual controls were still a single zone while the Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC) was a 3-zone system (driver, passenger, and rear). There are separate driver...
