Sorry about that guys. I didnt think of copying everything on the reciept. I will do that right when I get home. By the way I didnt even tell you the car I have :banghead: I have a mercury mystique it is a 97' with a v6 dohc 24 valve engine. Oh yeah 2.5 liter engine. I dont think this will help but, I just said it just incase it might help I will tell you what my reciept said. SOrry again. thanks again

yeah they found a leak in a peice of the hose and they say they fixed it probley with some glue now the light is on agian. i just wanted to know where the hose is located in the car. I am sure all cars are different but, what are some places it can be. I want to see if it is still cut. So I dont lose my head over worrying aobut it. lol :banghead:

look your car up at www.autozone.com repair info/repair guide's/select year/make/model/driveability& emissions/ on the rightside look for vacuum diagrams/find your year for vacuum diagram then you can check your vacuum hoses for hole's but it maybe a failed sensor let us know

it might also be the evap system... fords can be touchy about that... i.e. don't fill up w/ your car running.. :banghead:

buy a piece of vacuum hose 2 feet long.substitute hoses one at a time until the problem goes away,...or use a three foot piece as a stethoscope to find a hissing noise.there are many different hoses in there.
