How do you fix vacuum leak on Dodge Intrepid?
A vac leak simply means you have a hose somewhere with a hole in it that needs replaced. An engine generates vacuum so unmetered air will enter any hole where its not supposed to and lean out the mixture. The vacum is used to operate some things like brake booster etc but those hoses must be airtight

Answer . Take it to someone who is qualified to work on airbags. Do NOT attempt to do anything to the airbags if you don't know what you're doing. Those things can go off f…or no apparant reason and can cause serious injury or death.
Answer Sometime hard but if you got a good eye and a little soap and water you can spray all hoses that you see and check for bubbles also you can check with a engine starti…ng fluid and spray a little around intake manifolds with the engine running and if the engine speed raises then you have found you leak also listen for a hissing sounds, check for cracked hoses or dry rotted hoses and so on good eye and patients also you can try with a vacuum pump but I usually find the with a little time and a little water and bubbles. Good luck hope you find it. James. Answer Soap and water works good. spray and look for bubble also a starting fluid works listen to engine for change in idle speed spray around common area like intake gasket and hoses that might be exposed to heat causing cracks or melting. hope that helps. easy to do with out buying expensive tools. For safety, try a spray lubricant like WD40, if it gets on a hot exhaust manifold, it likely won't cause a flash fire! This method is also effective for finding leaks on Intake Manifolds and Carborators, but will not work on Exhaust Manifolds.

Answer . Replace hoses and fittings
\nMost times - new rubber vacumn hoses, sometimes new plastic hose connectors. A bandaid will work also if you have found the leak.
Failed line, seal, hose, caliper, etc.
where is the leak? are you not getting good suction? If your vacuum isn't picking up like it should that is most likely not a leak but clogged filters. The only reason I ask i…s that I recently took apart my whole vacuum(2 hour process) only to find out that it was a filter that I didn't know about ( of course it was easy to get to but took me taking apart the vacuum to find it). After I cleaned it my vacuum was like new. no more dust in the air and it picked up perfectly.
Mine was behind the intake manifold. I took mine to the dealer, I'm not confident enough to do it myself. It cost $550 for parts and labor.
Find the leak, and fix the cause.
you could try using a type of plaster, like construction silicon, or maybe try using some kind of putty.
Perhaps you better not. In some states it is illegal to work on auto A/C if you are not certified. High pressure gas can freeze body parts.
In Fuel Filters
the air conditioning pump is on the passenger side thats the only thing that leaks water there
There's a gasket between the thermostat and the block that you need to replace.
It would greatly depend on the source of the leak, need more info.
First you have to locate the source of the vacuum leak then you can determine what steps to take to stop the leak. Determine the source and re-post your question with more inf…o.
