ahHHH!!! the car is misfiring again. i went to do a cold start this morning and it started fine, then i heard two "clanking" noises. (i'm guessing it's because the spark plug is covered in oil again because of the vcg, which is because of no vacuum which is because of a vacuum leak.

i'm about ready to remove the manifold to make sure all the connections are good on the ccv but i just read the diy and it looks like a bitch.

yeah, it doesn't help on a laptop either. At work we have 2 screens and that isn't enough, we will be getting 4 screens soon.

If you take the manifold off, I think you will need to replace the gasket ....

and yes, ccv is a bitch.... raf and I just did mine.

yeah, i have the gasket, it's been sitting since i did the CCV.

i'm hoping that something is loose, and a quick connection will help keep my vcg from blowing out.

Ccv should be easier from the top with the throttle body off.
