So a couple days ago I my SES light came on, so I took it to an autozone to have the code scanned. I wish I got the what the actual code was but the translation they gave me was there's a vacuum leak.

Long story short, I took off the DISA valve and I don't know if it's good or not. The flaps still functions but it looks really grimey and it looks like someone tried replacing the o ring on it

If everybody performed a smoke test, then fixed the vacuum leaks 50% of the posts here would disappear.
Replacing "known suspects" for vacuum leak issues most usually, leaves one's wallet a little thinner.

It’s fine, but you probably need to smoke test to find the vacuum leak
Wow thanks for the tip, I honestly didn't even know what you meant by smoke test but after seeing an example of how it works I was astonished, and kinda surprised im just hearing about this method now.

Thanks for the tip and the knowledge.
