Engine is a 3800 Series II(NA) in a 1986 Pontiac Fiero.
It SOUNDS like a vacuum leak,LOUD VIDEO here
is a video of it being shut down and the massive "slurping" sound after it does(pardon the loud engine, there currently no exhaust after the headers).
The vacuum leak sounds like it is coming from the throttle body, there is a large hissing sound when the engine runs.
-I have gotten a few codes, two for random misfires and one for "bank 1 running too lean". The car idles alright, but if you give it gas it will idle too low, boost RPMS trying to live, and repeat until it stalls.
-I have checked fuel pressure, it holds steady at 48-50PSI(OE recommended 45-55)
-The MAF sensor looks like this
, and has been cleaned. It also gave constant Hz readings followed by steady increases and decreases with engine RPM(suggesting it was working). The MAP sensor was also removed and cleaned.
Here are the Vac lines:
Throttle body has two ports, the upper is stock
, leads to the fuel pressure regulator(on the right) and purge solenoid valve(on the left). The fuel pressure regulator is new, working, and receiving vacuum. The bottom throttle port is plugged.this
is the purge solenoid valve. The line feeding into the back of it leads to the upper port on the throttle body(the line on the left in the previous picture) and the other line goes strait to the purge canister, pictured here
is the last vac hookup, the large hose runs to the brake booster(like stock), and the small one is labeled as "accessory", which I have plugged as I have no use for it.
Things I have tried/ideas:
-Plugging each individual vac line, the problem remained each time.
-I just replaced the thermostat/housing/gasket, could I have ****ed that up? Could it cause the sound?
-Bank one headers to crossover pipe bolts are loose, which is causing a pretty large exhaust leak. Could that have thrown the "bank 1 too lean" code?
