I keep getting a check Engine light and when I took it ot get it looked at the Computer said it was a Vacum Leak. They reset it and a couple days later it happened again. I took it back any they looked at the Fuel Filiter any the hoses and said they could not find anything wrong. They said if it happens again try and replace the Gas Cap. I have not done that yet because I don't know if that is the problem. What do you think.

Thank you,
BowmanPa

Hi there,

I will need to know what the code is before I can make a call on this one.

Had the same problem with mine. Was told that the vacuum leak code could mean that the catalytic converter is going bad. I didn't think that was it. Turned out I I had a bad spark cable. I replaced the wire set and everything was back to normal.
