Dodge Vacuum Leak Automotive Troubleshooting Question
Have a 1991 Dodge Spirit 3.0 six-banger. Had a head gasket issue which I was able to patch up with a little Bars Leak stuff. Now.A new problem. At some point while trying to plug up the head gasket…something else happened (don't know what). But, now when I start the car. It starts runs for a few seconds then shuts down. Does this each and every time. Always starts right up. Then shuts right down. “Check Engine" light comes on too. Sometimes when I can get it to warm up, it does idle eratically at very low idle, then will eventually shut down. Might be a vacuum leak. This is not an area of expertise for me. I don't know where or how to detect a leak. Or how to stop it. Could it be something else? Any thoughts? Thank you!
