There is a thread here where this is diagnosed as being the vacuum pump. (ie provide the vacuum for the brake servo, item 20 on your diagram)Hope I did this right
And now I read the question...This went out on me today, wondering if anybody knows if this is an easy replacement or if I should go to a shop?
Looks like the brake booster, not 100% on that, can prolly get a pic up if you need.
It is common for the oil from the crankcase breather to be in the MAF; this does affect performance and smoothness. And being downstream of the Kompressor, the positive air pressure can force air (and hence oil) out and around.OK, so just got back from the mechanic. Looks like I got a couple of issues. But the fluid was not brake fluid. It was power steering, the power steering hose is $30 to install, so no biggie there. But it doers have the MAF sensor issue, where the oil leaked on that. But I can afford the repair. The mechanic was awesome. Looks like it's safe to drive til I get the repair to. That was my main concern.
OK, sounds like you need to start with the MAF, but I wonder if you have some hose leakage, letting in air. If teh ECU detects things are not working correctly, it tends to increase the tickover to a safe (non-stalling) value.So its's looking the the issue is going to be that MAF. The mechanic said he was going to repair the oil leak and clean everything. Going back today for the power steering hose. It's idling at like 13. So he reset my idle and after a few it started going up again. Then after I drive it the idle fluctuates. not exactly a mechanic myself though. But this mechanic came highly recommended.
Good to hear, mate.Just picked her up. Running perfect. So smooth. And they replaced a brake light on the house.
They did the power steering line, replaced the MAF, cleaned out the intercooler, and replaced the back brakes.
