    Car is discharging air at high pressure from under the hood. Also the battery was COMPLETELY dead.
    My Car has almost 90,000 miles on it and it all of the sudden had a completely dead battery one morning. We jumped it and it came to life, but was sputtering and chugging pretty bad and it would discharge air at a high pressure. Much like the sound an air compressor ...

      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance.

      This aspect is important; there may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.

      Do not skip this important first step - there are literally hundreds of possible fault codes. Avoid wasting/ throwing money at the problem.

      Possible Causes of Engine Hesitation or Stumble:

      Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this)
      Dirty air filter (change filter)
      Dirty / clogged fuel filter (change filter)
      Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
      Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
      Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
      Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
      Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
      Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)

      Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:

      Dirty or worn spark plugs
      Bad plug wires
      Weak ignition coil
      Wet plug wires

      Thanks alot i got under the car and there is a vacuum hose not there at all. There is a canister next to my fuel filter tjat vacuum line go into and on the bottom the line comes out. My issue is the line coming out the bottom runs to an plastic elbow and the isnt a line coming out but there are clips that hold the line heading toward the back of the car. Any idea where it goes? Is there a vaccum line coming from the gas tank?

    How do I fix this problem I have code p1312 vehicle bogs and no upshift veh has no power also p0467
    I check my ion module connection and module white wire at the brain harness please advise

      P1312= Ignition control module (ICM) - ignition coil secondary coil signal, circuit 2
      Cause; wiring, ignition coil(s), ICM, ECM

      P0467 = Purge Flow Sensor Circuit Low Input (EVAP Purge Flow Sensor Circuit Low)

      That is pertaining to the charcoal canister, purge control valve, control solenoid and associated vacuum lines/connecting hoses. It's possible either the control valve or the canister is at fault.

      Possible causes Needs a tune up, timing is off, or a major Vacuum leak

      Not a simple tune-up or vacuum leak as was previously suggested.
