Altima,

You have a vacuam leak of some description, maybe even to the guage. Is the car idling well?

the car is idling pretty bad actually. How do i determine where the leak is located?

The economy gauge on my 190E is about 1/4 way to the red at idle. It idles good warm, not so good when cold. Could this also be a vacuum leak? Where is the first place to look for vacuum leaks?

I always start at the engine near the intake manifold at the little black connectors. They get cracked with time.
