Speculate II: What kinda smack will a vacuum leak put on FE?

Yeah, figured it out finally! Thanks again jared, . There's something wrong with the pcv line, prolly gonna just replace the whole damn thing tomorrow if I can't figure out how to fix it. Anyway, it leaks enough to keep the engine idling at 4-500 with no other air coming in, any idea how much this has been hurting me?

Except for the surge during

Except for the surge during warmup! It's pretty small really, like 200 rpms, slower also, and lets not forget, it seems to idle high then, but I forget what is normal, to be honest.

you can adjust your ect idle curve in crome
