is it like mine?




The Bottom valve goes to the crossover pipe check valve. The other pipe coming off of it goes to the converter.




The bottom line on each of these valves is the supply from the black coffee can reservoir. The top port on the valve routes to the appropriate vacuum device. The TAB is the top valve and the TAD is the bottom valve on the rear of the motor. The EVR is the EGR valve position sensor.

Yo John,
Seattle wrote in Booba's Replace Plastic Vacuum Hoses with Rubber @ Replace Plastic Vacuum Hoses with Rubber

"Get the Silicone Boost/Vacuum Hose Engine Dress Up Kit and then an additional 10' of 4mm vacuum hose in the color of your choice. I used wire loom to protect the hose through the Intake Manifold, to the Diverter Valve and where it rubs on the Intake to the EVP. "

Just read thru the whole thread and have tried googling/searching, and can't find an answer.

If we're replacing the vacuum lines because they've been leaking, should we clean any accessible ports that the lines go to?

Would it make any sense to remove the intake plenum or manifold and clean it out, as well as squirter electronics or maf cleaner into the sensors?

If we just change the lines, and not clean anything else, do we need to worry about past gunk still having detrimental effects on our system?

I got my new-to-me project Bronco sort of running yesterday with a new starter, but it wouldn't idle unless I gave it gas. (One might say it's a Bucking Bronco.) Replacing vacuum hoses was at the top of my list of things to troubleshoot, followed by IAC, TPS, TB, fuel pump/filter, and plugs/wires/coil (will do the Six Litre upgrade).

Looking around the engine bay today, I noticed the black line is cut a couple inches from the coffee can on the passenger wheel well. I couldn't find a matching hose elsewhere, but jowens1126's post at the top of page 5 highlights what I need to look for.

Replace Plastic Vacuum Hoses with Rubber

I'll see if I can spot the line with daylight tomorrow. That would have been tough to spot without that illustration, so thanks in advance! This is my first time working on a vehicle so big. It'll take some getting used to have to use a step stool to get all the way into the engine bay.

Unless the hoses having gaping holes, that doesn't seem necessary. More dirt probably gets in through the air filter than it would through brittle hoses. I've never worried it before and never had a problem.
