Not sure what type of vehicle you are referring to however most vehicles come with a vaccum diagram inside of the engine compartment , either on the bottom side of the hood or on the cross member in front of the radiator. Same can be said of the spark plug wires. If they are not availablein those places , I would suggest googling the engine year ,size and yr/make /model of your vehicle or see if youtube has a video clip of firing order/spark plug wiring .Good luck

1998 dodge ram 1500 5.2l, a/c air blows out floor

You most likely have a vaccum supply issue to your A/C control panel/unit. Your dodge has a vaccum actuated mode door and under low vaccum situations (hard acceleration) the mode door will revert to its at rest position (floor vents)...

Follow the small plastic vaccum line coming out of your A/C unit under your hood, it will eventually end up at a source of vaccum, either the throttle body or intake manifold. Somewhere in between you will find your leak. Good luck!!!

Looks like I have a vaccum problem on my 1990 Cadilac Brougham 5.7L: Cruise control not working (but all lights work correctly), no automatic parking brake release and no air at dashboard outlets. I...

Usually you can follow the hissing noise. Any noise inside the car? Near the brake pedal where the cruise cutoff vacuum switch is? If not, start at the throttle body. The main line runs from there to the vacuum storage canister. See diagram below.

Surges a lot, it's speeds up and slow down quickly and won't stop. also hard starting ,the engine turns over more than usual and temperature gage doesn't work.

clean the screen on the mass air flow sensor remove the air cleaner intake boot to the throttle body check your air filter for air flow make sure the map sensor is plugged in and the vaccum hose is not restricted check for vaccum leaks. Make sure when you clean the screen you use aerosol cleaner for throttle body and mas air flow sensors dont use starting fluid and only spray one way then gently blow out with air. There is a vaccum hose that can be disconnected at the throttle body if it is off it will flood. if its off watch for someone messing with your car. Check the wire to make sure it is connected to the temperature sensor. Better service your fuel filter if all that is good shape.

How do I change spark plugs on a 2005 Mazda MPV 3.0 liter engine?

I just changed plugs on my 05' you have to remove the intake plentum to gain acsess to the rear plugs. First remove plastic cover from top of engine, remove intake hose to throtle body, unplug electrical connections to sensors on plentum, unhook vaccum lines, there are two coolant lines that need to unhooked from underneth throttle body, remove plentum support bolts, one on back and one on right side towards rear, a flash light and a mirror is useful for locating these bolts, there is also two vaccumn lines on the very back off plentum that have to be removed. remove clip on back off plentum that secures the hose that goes across the side of the plentum. Remove the six hold down bolts on plentum, and remove plentum. Spark plugs are acsessed by removing the coil packs for each cylinder, simply remove each coil pack hold down bolt and remove coil, plugs are underneth coil packs, you will need a long extension and a 5/8 spark plug socket to remove plugs.

Heat and air only come out defrost on windsheild not vent or floor

The air handlers on jeep are powered by engine vaccum and when a loss of vaccum happens the air is defaulted to defrost,so under the hood on passenger side is a 1/8 small black plastic line should be plugged into a bigger rubber or plastic vaccum line sometimes after a few years the rubber boots the use get soft and washing the engine or just moving things around can unhook the small line

Air only blows on floor with very little coming out the defrost or regular vents.

Hope you have the same set up, sure you do. You may have either crossed your vaccum lines or when you were putting your heater/ac box back together or you may of pinched the vents somewhat closed. Cycle through the different zones to ensure the vents are moving as your are selecting (defrost, floor, ect...) If you think the vaccum lines are correct then you may have a reassembly issue with the Heater/ac box. I had the same problem with my 2000 Dodge Ram 4x4. Use the KISS rule "keep it simple stupid" start with the vaccum lines and all your wiring to the motors, make sure everything is plugged in. Hopefully you'll find it there before going back into the box again.

if its only coming out certain vents and will not change the vents when the dial is switched, it is probably in the vaccum lines under your dash behind the glovebox. Should be a long bar with a bunch of different colored vaccum lines hooked to the side of the hvac box. One comes in from a different direction then the others and that is your main vaccum feed. Check that one first. If it has vaccum check the lines at the plungers mounted on the side of the hvac box. (big round things) they should each have a line going to them, make sure they didnt break or unhook. You can squeeze the plungers by hand and it should change which vent the air comes from. If this makes it change its deffinatly a vaccum problem? Hope this helps.

Front vents will not work

If they are stuck on defrost,then the problem is a little vaccum line that comes through the firewall as all the climate controls are vaccum controlled,so look for a small green or black plastic line unhooked.
