My car start to idle ruff and kept stalling so I pop open the hood and to see if the fuel pump was work by disconnecting one of the fuel hose but while I was disconnecting it I seen that the was a vacuum leak to whatever that is and i cut it and i thought I put it back in and I went to turn my miata over and it didn't idle ruff anymore and didn't stall but went back to the engine bay and plug the hose back in and it started to idle ruff agian and wanted to stall

All that thing does is restrict your engine from getting all the fuel it needs.. I'd just remove it.

English isn't his first language. How is your spelling and grammar in Spanish? Hopefully it is impeccable and you can offer your thoughtful assistance in his native tongue.

If you view his profile you'd find..






























That he resides in the United States. Criticism is probably warranted.

Spanish first and last name coupled with the irregularities. If it was Sergei Andropov, Ahmed Assan, Horst Vanderbruke, or Ude Eko and his English was poor I would likewise give him a pass. Not so much if his screen name was driftmissle69.

I'm from California, there are PLENTY of hispanics named Luis that are literate. So a name means nothing to me.

**** guys does it really matter if his English isnt perfect. There are plenty of people that like cars , live in the US, and have English as a secondary language. How many other languages do you know? Let's see you post in Spanish and see how bad it is. But giving someone a hard time because they legitimately dont know the proper grammer is petty.
