hey guyz

the climate control in my car wasnt working, and after reading thru this forums. i went out and found that the vacuum hose in the engine bay was out and the car had a vacuum leak. but it back together and all is dandy.

just wondering if a vacuum leak affects fuel economy or perfromance at all?

im still a bit of a newbie to falcons :lol:
