Ive read the hanes manual and know what im looking for but i was wondering if there were any ppl with first hand experience and if its simple solution method or should i be prepaired for the long haul of parts and labour

i had the car on a code reader and got a vaccum leak and know there is a vaccum hose to the cruise control system could it be one and the same problem and would it create a check engine light that returns even when manually erased

Hi V-DUB98,

Sure, if you erase the code but don't fix the problem, the check engine light will come back on. As far as diagnosing this problem, you should check all of the vacuum components shown in illustration 21.1 of Chapter 12, as well as the hoses connecting the components.
