Customer Question
It starts and then...

It starts and then shuts off immediately. I had the engine changed due to an oil change station installing the wrong filter. After a while the check engine light came on with two codes. They indicated a vacuum leak and now it won't run

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Light stays on.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Station?

2002 GS300

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Station yourself? What have you tried so far?

Looked for disconnected, cut vacuum lines but nothing note

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

There was a severe lack of power when it was running.
