someone please explain to me why this is. from cold start to full operating temp no issues runs/idles perfect with the vac leak, but when i stop the leak rough idle, sputters and bucks under light throttle.

idle with the leak is 700-800 rpm no fluctuation

without leak 400-500 with fluctuation anywhere from 1500 all the way down stalling

i lost my code reader but last time i pulled codes i remember something about the EGR

bad injector maybe? i dont mess with much efi but a rich running condition is causing this which could be caused by a bad injector... or possibly your ecu is getting a bad signal from your o2 sensors... could be a plugged up cat??? idk im just throwin stuff out there... pull your spark plugs and take a look at em and see how their burning... if theyre gas fouled it will confirm a rich condition... make sure your egr tube isnt coked up....

Yeah. Definitely running rich without the leak and the leak gives it enough air. Possible restriction in the intake also? Maybe bad clogged filter or a foam part of an old filter sucked into the intake tube...
