DIY replace brake booster
Bought the car with code
17887 - Brake Boost Vacuum System
P1479 - 008 - Mechanical Failure
No power brakes.
But also have 'lean' codes on both banks.
Before I order brake booster, is it possible the code and symptoms (no power brakes, STIFF brakes) by just a vacuum leak to the brake booster?
If so: what are easy/common ways to leak test (I have a 'smoker') the V8? Where is it easy to tap in?
