Steering colum vacuum lines

There are two vacuum lines that are not hooked up on my steering colum - one comes in from the firewall and the other branches off . the guy that rebuilt my steering colum did not hook these up. One , I believe goes to the steering switch that makes it easier to turn the steering wheel and the other goes to the parking brake that when you put it into drive, the parking brake automatically disengages. help.

Whats the device called thats under my dash on my 1995 f150 that controls the vents its a small vacuum device ?

That line breaks every where. Run a new line. drill a hole thru the firewall. Find the vacuum ball and hook it to it. Tape the line well thru the firewall to prevent rubbing a hole in it. Your best and fastest/cheapest choice. This line runs (in) the wiring harness....

Vacuum line issue

In most GM vehicles only two vacuum lines pass through the firewall. One as you mentioned is the vacuum source (your black line) the other usually controls a valve that turns off coolant flow through the heater core while the A/C mode is turned on.

How do i take out the heater core on a 1997 dodge dakota?

dammm ok make sure you have about 5 hours allowed to do this need to disassemble the under side of dash, both side panels and steering colume panel, remove the colume saddle and let the colume and wheel lay on the seat, all screws across the top of dash and sides
dash must come out , take your time and carefully remove all plugs and gauge attachments, pop the hood un hook your heater lines and either crimp em off or drain and retain coolant now the other bummer,you need to un hook the ac coolant lines you may need a disconnect tool 8 big ones at auto zone now back to the cab remove heater/ac box unscrew the on screw behind the htr core it will slide right out, install new and reverse good luck it isnt to bad

There are 2 hoses coming threw the the fire wall into the engine compartment by the steering colume in 1990 jeep wrangler auto trans 4.2L what are they for and what do they hook too?

The only hoses that should be coming through the firewall would normally be the heater hoses but they would generally be more in the middle or on the passenger side of the vehicle. Do these appear to be add on type or original equipment? If someone has added something it would be a strange location.

I have a 98 honda accord 4 cyl it leaks power steering fluid and is wet whare the boot meets the fire wall on the steering colum im not sure if it is the gear boxs or what .

wash it all down let dry or blown dry, fill with fluid start car and have someone slowly turn wheel as u watch. the rack can be bad but be careful these cars the metal line to rack near firewall rot and leak it can fool you, remove the cover that covers lines by were u see leak to get a better look,may just be a line,alot cheaper than a rackinpinion gear, hope this helps.

1994 Buick Roadmaster won't divert heat to defroster or floor

There is a vacuum line that's plastic on the passenger side back near the firewall. Sometime they have a little black ball looking thing (vacuum canister) that the vacuum line hooks to. Look for vacuum leaks in that area. That will cause the problem you described.
