1) Can you detail on how to "reset your computer"?
2) Post #1: "I did set my base idle and a vacuum leak along the way while working through the checklists on the site but now I am kinda stuck." - Did you just miss that?
3) jrichker is pretty savvy tech wise and goes above and beyond to help folks here so I'd ease up a little.
4) What good is soapy water (we refer to it as snoop in the oil and gas world) going to do on a vaccum leak? Vaccum will not create bubbles so the OP's car will just be sucking in soapy water into the intake. You typically use carburetor spray and the rpm's will increase where the engine sucks in the spray.
