Vacuum Question

Curious if vacuum plus manifold pressure reading should be roughly equal to barometric pressure? Running Torque and watching realtime data I typically see a vac reading of 11-22 or so depending of course on load, with a manifold reading of 3-9 on average. I would expect that the two together should be roughly equal to barometric depending on load, and wonder if I may have a vac leak driving my gas mileage down.

Any thoughts or info are appreciated.

The answer to your question is Yes. Manifold absolute pressure is pressure above zero, and manifold vacuum is pressure below atmospheric. Add the two (expressed in the same units) and you get atmospheric pressure at your location.

Those are evap system codes, hoses run from pcv and resonator I believe in the engine compartment, along the left side rail of the unibody to the evap canister in the left rear wheel well. Look for cracks or splitting or just replace them.

Thanks rm, that's what I thought but wanted a verification.
