I normally don't see this unless you have cruise control in some vehicles and you would know if that was the case if your cruise control wasn't working. The only other time I have seen it is when a vehicle was modified to tow heavy or long trailers and that would lead to a control box to activate the trailer brakes. It does not sound like this is the case. Check the Air Intake for an open connection or for a lose hose somewhere in that area. If you don't find one and the vehicle appears to be working correctly cap that open vacuum port and leave it unless something isn't working correctly. There is one other spot it might go to and that would be a line going to the transmission if you have had any transmission work done they may have forgotten to reconnect that line. The most common places to find a vacuum line open would be from the valve cover, the air intake, the vacuum canister or a control port on the top of the manifold if you have California emissions installed. If the trucks been working with that line open with no braking problems you may find the brakes a little more sensitive than before but it should not present a problem. Since you have the opening on the line if it does connect to something else you will find an open hose somewhere around that area.

While driving hit resume cruise control and the car speed up to 100 and brakes would not work. Had to shut engine off in middle of freeway, what could it be?

Could be a faulty cruise control servo activator. The power to move the cruise control Actuator is most likely coming from the Brake power hydraulic booster vacuum pipe and if the cruise control vacuum servo is failing and leaking in air you lose the brakes power hydraulics.
check the vacuum pipe coming off the power booster brake master cylinder vacuum pipe you may find a tee connector in the vacuum main pipe and follow it to see where it goes to. Could be a break in the cruise control vacuum hose but if it is only happening when the cruise control is activated a fault or leak in the cruise control servo device is the main suspect. Which you should find at the other end of the cruise control vacuum hose.

How do I drain down the tank on a ford transit connect where is the tank

I take it you mean the gas tank, follow the filler pipe down and it will lead to the tank. To drain the tank remove the fuel pump of it is located in the tank andsyphon the fuel out there, if the pmp is inaccesable find a fuel supply pipe in the engine compartment and draw the fuel out of there. It is usually inpossible to gain access to the tank through the filler point. Another possibility is to disconnect one of the breather pipes and draw the fuel out of there.

I have an Audi A41.9 TDI 1997 and it is coughing up black smoke which comes out of the exhaust pipe. On the motoway, while trying to overtake a car a puff of black smoke came out of the exhaust pipe and...

There are several possible faults:
1. Pressure sensor is faulty (it might come up on diagnostics as if it was working fine, but it shows the wrong manifold pressure).
2. Either one of the boost pipes/hoses or the intercooler have a hole somewhere.
3. Turbo's actuator is stuck.
4. Vacuum hose is damaged which goes in to the turbo actuator.
5. Control valve for the turbo actuator is not working properly.

Mitsubishi l200 4wheel drive light flashes constantly after you've been driving for about 5 minutes. It usually comes on when you stop at a junction.

Hi, this is caused by a few things. It might be that the 4x4 switches on the transfer case are sticky or you do not have sufficient vacuum on the front diff actuator which is caused by a hole in one of the vacuum pipes or the vacuum solenoids not operating correctly. You can test the vacuum solenoids with your finger. Start the vehicle and pull off the vacuum pipes connected to the top of the vacuum solenoids. When 2wd is selected you should have vacuum on one solenoid and when 4wd is selected the vacuum should change to the other solenoid.

T350 90 ford transit lost accelerating power 02 plate 2.4 durator

The actuator only opens when maximun set boost has been achieved. the actuator lets exhaust gas bypass the turbo once it has reached its pressure. check for vacuum leaks, cracks in the intake piping.

Turbo doesnt engage

The turbo never "engages". The turbo spins all the time, but the amount of exhaust gas driving it is adjusted by the wastegate.

The problem you are experiencing could be due to the wastegate's vacuum tube being disconnected. The wastegate is meant to open as the inlet manifold pressure increases, so that the turbo spins less and doesn't compress the air too much. It could also be the result of a faulty sensor, but check the vacuum tubes first. Your wastegate actuator is fitted just behind the turbo. If the pipe has come off recently, you should be able to see a clean section where it's meant to be joined to the actuator. The disconnected pipe should be fairly close by. Again, the pipe should be connected to the inlet manifold though from memory I think this is one of the difficult to reach pipes on the back of the engine.

As a side note, the turbo guage on the dashboard is very poor. Even if only for the sake of diagnostics, you should get a cheap direct vacuum driven guage.
