Hello, I plugged in my code scanner and the codes came up P0171, P0443, and P0174. I think there is a vacuum leak somewhere. I do know the valve cover gasket is leaking on it as well. There is a bad crackle as you accelerate in it. Any suggestions?

Check the pcv hose elbow behind the upper plenium. It is a common failure.

I checked it, its in good shape. Could I have a bad purge valve?

Besides the pcv hose, low fuel pressure, mass air flow sensor or bad pcv could be the 171,174.

The 443 is an evap issue. Separate issue completely.

Check the chart below but requires a scan tool, smoke machine and volt meter
