2003 Ford Taurus Question: How do I determine if vacuum leak is in system or bad pump



, Paris, TX, October 11, 2010, 19:47

engine light stays on, does not flash. The code is for vacuum system failure. Not sure if it is in hoses or in vacuum pump. How do I determine ? Car runs well, heater/air conditioner runs well. Short of expensive trip to dealership I could use some ideas

    I could be as simple a your gas cap not sealing also. Put some vasoline on it and make sure it's tight.
