2000 Milly S 2.3L, - bad idle below 2000 RPM, dies when I put it in drive or reverse
Hello all, I believe I'm having the nefarious vacuum issue with my Millenia. I just had it at the shop for emissions back in May 2017 and it had a few misfires going on, but ran fine. I took it home and checked around the engine, and found the large black rubber "boot" a the front right (driver side) of the engine was completely torn, but the car still ran so I just duct-taped it up as best I could for now.
Suddenly mid-summer it started sputtering when the engine was warmed up, usually when switching gears, and then a week or so ago it finally started dying. Had to tow it home from work, as it won't stay running when I put it into drive or reverse anymore. So I believe it's vacuum-related due to all the threads here with similar issues and fixes. It's got 160,000 miles on it exactly as of time of death.
So as I dig into the vacuum tubes and tees to try and fix it, I'd like to replace that black intake boot, or maybe it's called a mass air boot? I don't know what it's called to order a new part, and hope someone can help with the proper name or part number.
