Vacuum leak

Asked by Jan 23, 2017 at 08:20 AM about the 2001 Mercury Sable GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am trying to figure out why my car is
moaning. It is a loud moaning sound. I
have listened to many videos about it
and none of them sound like what I
hear. Also idle is rough

Is it coming from the serpentine belt area? A guess would be the power steering pump.


If it's a vacuum leak, then check all the hoses coming off the upper intake, near the throttle body are.
