What do you think I do with it, sometimes I put it over my head and huff to release hypertension or ventilation?

You forgot the duct tape huh?

Do you think if you took the tape and the bag and created a seal of sorts on intake you could watch/observe it implode to vacuum leak or add high pressure air to intake and watch bag expand?

Ever consider foamed glass cleaner and blow the suds off with high PSI?

Do you think if you cut strips of bag and attach to screw driver with tape and watch if bag gravitation seeks the leak?

Great news. Found another vacuum leak hiding so patched it up. No more misfires. Still getting the evap code though. When is your write-up on testing the evap system? I was reading it yesterday and now I can't find it. I have a vacuum pump and I started using it yesterday. I applied vacuum to each hose that was coming out of the evap purge valve and neither side held any vacuum with the car off. I'm assuming I need to crimp off the hose evap hose before the cannister on the one side and before the LDP on the other side? Also given how thick there hoses are what is your best option you use when crimping the hose off to deal them tight? I tried using a pliers and that won't hold it and feels like I will damage them. Also I can't hold it in place myself. These hoses are a lot less pliable compared to the vacuum hoses.

IDK why but every time I click that link it does this Uwe and seems to be isolated to that thread.

Just link to the thread like I did and don't include the thread title. I think the problem is that there's at least one term in the title that the acronym decoder hits and that's messing up the URL.
