Rough Idle + CEL

Well, a since few days ago my car's been having a rough Idle and threw a CEL on, well, I deleted it figured everything was cool...

Until last night, the CEL came back and the car was having terrible cold start issue and one heck of a rough Idle. So I digged in there and narrowed down the issue to being a darn vacuum leak. I finally maned up and took it to the stealership after my morning class...

Turns out my PCV valve is bad and a few hoses around it are cracking on me. At first I was going to just have them diagnose it and let me do it, but I figured F it...

Car should be in my hands tomorrow

Will keep ya updated

True, that's why i figured I'd let them deal with it, that way if it isn't I get to blame them for it
