Engine Performance problem
2002 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 122025 miles
I am working on a 2002 Dodge Neon with a 2.0 L engine. I was asked to come and look at a 2002 doge neon with a surging idle and a checked engine light. The code it is throwing is p1299, my scanner says it is a problem with the fuel ratio. After looking on line it says it is a vacuum leak. I started the car and found that the unit had no booster help with the brakes. I am thinking that the brake booster has a leak in it causing the vacuum leak. I was wondering if there is a way to check the booster for leaks before I spend the money to get a new one. Also is it even possible for a booster leaking to cause the problem of a surging idle and misfire?
have the same problem?
