Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

It seems like it should be something else? OK, and it could be, BUT you must eliminate the manifold first. The vacuum leak throws the electronics into a tizzy. Sucks oil, which can cause rattling and misfire. The leak causes a run lean condition, which the computer tries to correct for. Misfire and fatter fuel delivery..... Anyone smell gas? Could be the TPS as mentioned, or any one of several other sensors. It's what I hate about these computerized models.
