Post not a exhaust leak then what?

i went to midas cause i thought i had a exhaust leak....well it wasnt....i now have this hissing sound from the driver side....the guy said it sounds like a vacumm leak....i dont know what it is.....
all i know is i can hear air rushing out and can hear my valves....

anyone know....also if you do how to fix the prob...

i was told to take it to the dealer but i think if they pop the hood and see the nitrous, no fix for free...

thanks,
space

well a vacumm leak cant be to hard to find go in the engine and find all the hoses and check em ALL look for cracks with the engine running. be very very detailed with checking every hose. see how they look cracked or ripped or just broken. see if that helps if its a vacumm leak with a hose get a replacement from autozone and bam your good to go.

Thumbs up

just look around the hoses that go to the intake and off of the cylinder tops and other hoses syncronously. if its a hose you should be able to find it.

Hey Space I experienced the same thing. hissing drivers side. Don't know how detailed the midas guy was but on mine you could only hear it if you hit the gas. I replaced the gaskets for the headers and viola, fixed. 12 bucks total and about 20 min. of work. Hope this helps

One thing to think about - if you have a vacuum leak, your car should have a rough idle. Also, you can spray carb cleaner around the areas in question while the car is idling. If the rmps increase, the car has 'ingested' some of the carb cleaner and you have found your vacuum leak. Good luck.

Speaking from experience here. Make sure that your "breather" hoses are all attached. I thought I had an exhaust leak, too, but it turned out that a breather hose had come off on the back of the block (under TB). The car STANK.
