    Thanks for the response it appears that this is the case, as the loose end has o sign of oil, rubber stretch or cracking at the end.
    thanks

That is probably just a vent hose for your gearbox or front differential. It doesn't need to be connected anywhere other than the gearbox.

My transmission modulator is bad where is it located on a 1996 grandam


It is most likely under the hood, on the front side of the transaxle. It may have a 3/16 dia. metal vacuum line from the intake manifold down to it. The line has rubber vacuum hose on both ends.
BEFORE you spend the bucks for a new one you might check the vacuum lines because...

The age of your vehicle guarantee's a vacuum leak. It may sound silly but the truth is rubber grommets and hose's shrink and dry out over time and the harsh environment under the hood makes it worse. Check all vacuum lines and fittings attached to the intake manifold, valve covers(pcv valve), and be sure to check for a vacuum fitting on top of the intake just behind the throttle body. Does it fit tight in the hole? You can seal loose fittings with a high-temp RTV (Red) silicone sealant/adhesive. Several small leaks add up and your engine, heat/AC, and transmission will be all to glad to tell you about it.

Check the vacuum line under and in front of the throttle body...with engine idling. It is located under where the air filter snorkel attaches to the engine. Then check all vacuum lines at the intake manifold. Check vacuum lines at distribution block on firewall and check the large brake booster vacuum line from one end to the other. You'll find it!

08 f150 4x4 on front end only one side is disengaging when in 2 wheel drive. The problem is when engaged into 4x4 wheel drive the front drive line spins and both sides engage but only the back wheels spin...


If I read this correctly ( which I might not have, bit early for me ), the front drive shaft will engage ( from the transfer case ) but the front wheels are not engaged ?

If so, sounds like either the vacuum from the IWE ( Integrated Wheel End ) is not being released, or the IWEs have had an issue with part vacuum ( damage vacuum lines ) and the IWE gear is rounded off.

If you pull the vacuum lines at the IWEs ( there are 2 lines, 1 is the vacuum line, the other is the vent tube that routes up into the engine compartment and is not attached to anything ), the front wheel should engage ( might need a 5 * turn to mesh the gears ). With the vacuum lines off, jack up the front axle ( take precautions, chock the rear wheels, parking brake, jack stands, etc ) see if the front wheels are engaged ( turning one wheel should turn the other ). The option is to do this after the truck has sat over night, and the vacuum has been released out of the vacuum reservoir.

If the wheels turn correctly ( engaged ) I would think the contact plates in the transfer case are not making contact. Good starting point for this is the connector on the side of the transfer case, some times this gets gummed up, and the pins do not make good contact. The contact plates in the transfer case are used for a few things, one of them is to signal the IWE solenoids to release vacuum to the IWEs.

Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vacuum is removed the spring engages the IWE.

Here is a black diagram of the IWE vacuum system

There are actually a few lines in your car. On the hood there should be a diagram of the vacuum system pointing out the different start & end locations. You can take a can of carburetor cleaner from your local autoparts store, attach the long nozzle and just spray a short squirt at a time near the beginning and ending locations of your hoses to see if anything is loose. The engine will slow somewhat for a second or two when the spray is sucked through any vacuum leak. Be careful & only use short bursts of spray along the lines you are testing. Give the spray a few seconds to dissipate/evaporate between sprays to prevent any potential fire hazard. Spray around the throttle body, injectors & the intake also, any leak at all will show with this method. good luck.

Where doe sthe vaccum line plug into the transfer case


There is a vacuum switch where the three vacuum line plugs in to and that is located on the driver's side on top of the transfer case. Most of the time the vacuum switch goes bad and needs to be replace and goes for around $25.00 at Napa or Auto Zone and takes about 20 min to replace from start to finish. It's a tight fit for the open end wrench but it can be done, good luck and Merry Xmas.

A/c comes out of front defroster. I also found a vacuum hose lose near the front firewall and I cant find out where it goes.


I tried to give you a vaccum diagram but the manufacture will not release that info to outsiders. you need to find where the hose goes to.if you loose vac to the controls it goes to defrost mode.
