For all mx6 V6 owners.

My mx6 was dragging. When i was stopped at a red light the car would wanna turn off.

Note the needle shaped vacuum on top of the engine. It sucks air inwards. IT SHOULD HAVE A CAP ON IT!!!!!!...If it doesnt, the car will lose power and will handle badly.

Make sure you have a cap on the vacuum tip on top of the engine.

Just thought Id share it with all you.

Sounds like you are just fixing a small vacuum leak, in which case yes that would help with power loss and poor idle. Any vac leaks after the VAF sensor bring in air that the ECU doesnt account for throwing you Air/Fuel Ratio off
