    Is there anything bad that can happen if there is indeed a leak? I don't want to drive the car until its resolved if it could be detrimental

    A vacuum leak will cause the car to run lean at idle

    Running lean can increase knock as well as temperatures where you don't want increases. This can lead to a blown engine.

    I was doing some research on others who have a boost gauge operating correctly with PSI but idle is at 0 and some people mentioned the hose could be pinched? Could this be a possibility? I get that the vacuum could be leaking and while that is the worst case scenario, is it the most likely considering it has been driven 3 times since its install from the dealership?

    Also EJ257, are you from the area?! I saw you mentioned Gaithersburg.

    Sorry one more question.. how should I approach talking to the dealer about this? Not normally put into this type of situation. I am thinking of taking it up with the service manager since the tech who worked on it was quite douchey and sorta rude to me during the 15 second convo I had with him about placement of the gauge.

    Didn't realize it was so recently installed.

    Just explain the symptoms you're having. Don't guess the problem.

    Does it being so recently installed make you second guess the whole vacuum leak idea?

    I'm not sure. But you're noticing a problem with a recent install. Call yesterday to explain there may be a possible issue with services rendered (depending on how long it's been, you could get fixed free).

    It was installed on Thursday so its definitely related to the install. I am going to take a picture and upload it in a few minutes. I don't know if they t'd it in the best place. They sliced the mesh material hose. When I have looked at other install pics, people have used a different hose to install on. Uploading shortly...
