What purpose does the vacuum reservoir serve? I have a small vacuum leak at the heater control, and I'm wondering if that reservoir is draining down at night.
I have a problem that is most prevalent when I start the car first thing in the morning, and goes away after 5 or so minutes of driving. Does this makes any sense?
Thanks!

Re: Vacuum Reservoir? (phildo)

Have you replaced all the little fabric covered vac hoses that connect all the vac devices and the reservoir to the manifold? Every time I thought I had an FI problem with our Cabby it turned out to be a vac leak. Sometimes temp will affect it, old hoses become softer as engine warms up and leaks decrease. There are a couple of pieces of that little hose under dash as I recall, one of them might be your prob!
