    emissions workshop- air sound, low power- need help

    Yesterday, I noticed air sound coming from the IP, almost like it was coming from the defog vents in the very front of the IP, only during acceleration. It went into limp mode and gave me "emissions workshop". Clearly I have a hose/vacuum leak somewhere. I tried looking for it myself, but I...
