Default Re: vacuum leak

Spray some engine starter fluid around your intake to see where the leak is. It will affect the idle.

Once you find the leak, tighten/replace the defective part/gasket.

What leads you to believe you have a leak?

It's an intake. It's supposed to make that noise.

it's sucking in air, and it's more noticable at higher rpm's because it's sucking in alot of air. perfectly normal.

Related threads merged. OP, you need to provide a lot more details about the problem and your car.
