long story short the headlight doors stopped working and the engine started to have a hesitation to it...well i found the culprit here...cracked vac line and came off the port on the manifold...cut out the bad section and re attached it and all is good now

i hate vac lines on ANYTHING. My old car had a vac leak and it was a pain to track it down even doing a smoke test.
