Dodge neon 2002, had to remove air cleaner to get to other issue. When starting car, I get a extremly high rev in engine and then sputtering and stall. Need help how to troubleshoot!!
good evening my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you tonight

re check your work. it sounds like you have removed a vacuum hose and forgot to re attach. it may be a large hose like the one that goes to the power brake unit.

do you have any schematics or where to start looking!

ok, why did you remove the air cleaner??? what were you doing???

did you re check your work yet???? follow the hose from the power brake unit to the intake and see if it is attached

needed to remove battery plate to get to gearshift cable to replace bushing. I"m going to car to check for any hose running from power brake

ok, look at all the hoses as well.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

all hoses appear to be connected. there is a couple of electrical connection on some of the hoses that appear to be loose, otherwise nothing is jumping out at me??

if you start it, can you hear a hissing noise??? that would be the vacuum leak.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

large bellow hose (roughly 3" id) that has written on it throttle body has a slit. Probably the problem. Can I use gorrella tap to "quickfix" until I get a replacement?

you can use duck tape and wrap it rel well. it is temporary solution.

good job finding it.
