That's my biggest issue with taking it to the dealer. One, I can't be without my truck as it's my only commute vehicle, and two, I'd have to leave it over night to cold soak so they could hear it. If...

It is very common for the vacuum diaphrams to dry out, crack and leak vacuum. The best way to test this is with a hand vacuum pump with the engine running and watching a timing light. I know you said...
