View Full Version : Is this even possible?

The car has no vacuum and doesn't produce any boost. Is it possible I have a bad gauge?

Are you sure the line to the sender didn't pop off?

Has the gauge ever worked? Does it move at all or stay in that spot all of the time? Where is it connected into your vacuum system?

Something is wrong with the gauge or your boost line connection is disconnected. Electronic or mechanical boost signal?

It stopped working about 2 days ago. I figured I had a major vacuum leak and boost leak but I can't find anything ripped or missing to cause this. I have the line connected here:

Well, it is hooked up properly and it worked at one time then either the feed line shown in your pic has fallen off or is pinched or the gauge gave up the ghost. Pull the gauge and see if you can hear a vacuum leak when it is idling and the feed line has been removed from the back of the gauge. If you have vacuum at idle then pretty much the gauge is toast.

Well I pulled the gauge out and there was a serious crimp in the hose. If I have a normal vacuum, when I put my finger on the end of the gauge line will it suck in my finger like a vacuum cleaner?

Never mind, it was the crimp. I have normal vacuum with the crimp freed up. Thanks for all the help guys.
