    US AA 3 with 235 hp Honda K24

    US AA 3 with 235 hp Honda K24

    ok braintrust... my atom is running like crap. Idling horribly and making a hissing type noise. Found the source of the noise. A nipple on the intake manifold. Place my finger over the nipple ... strong suction ... idle smooths out... hissing noise gone.

    so after searching the Internet for K24z7 diagrams, it seems this nipple is a vacuum source for the brake booster. But the Atom doesnít have any boost/assist on the brakes.

    did the car have any type of hose there that Iíve lost?? If so, where did it go?
    or was it plugged?

    im inclined to think plugged, but figured Iíd ask away.

    Iíll see about getting some pics.

    the overall view. The nipple is the short stubby thing nestled dead center. 2 cyl intake tube to one side, 2 cyl intake tube to the other.

    In my K-powered AA2, the only vacuum port required is for the MAP sensor for the EFI system. Maybe the AA3 is similar enough.

    did you check the vacuum caps next to the throttle body?
