SOURCE: vacuum lines from intake dodge dakota sport v-6 magnum

On my 2002 dodge dakota there is a hose that runs off of the front of the intake manifold(facing front end of the engine compartment) This hose was disconnected and there was a cap on the stud at the bottom the intake. The hose was of course a perfect fit. The engine is now running a bit smoother and the all is well with the world.

SOURCE: We just purchased a used '99 Starcraft Field &

I had exact same problem on my 93 popup. I finally figured it out. First, the poles with the plastic rings slide into the poles with the metal rings. These are the vertical support poles. Next, the poles w/ plastic nipples slide into the other poles with rubber ends. When put together the poles with the nipples should be spring loaded. These spring loaded poles rest against the top of the camper and the nipples are inserted into the 3 holes of the pole that go across the front of the awning giving you rafter support. The tension from the spring should keep the pole in place against the side of the camper. The first 3 poles with the plastic rings go from the ground to the front awning pole where the nipples can slide through the plastic ring and then into the awning pole. The vertical poles can be adjusted for height by sliding them up or down and then twisting them like a screw to tighten them up and keep them in place. 2 of my 3 vertical poles will not lock when I twist them so I have to get tricky with them. The metal rings, which should now be at the ground, are there so that you can stake it down under windy conditions. I hope this wasn't too confusing but I beleive it will help you. Good luck!!!

How do you hook up vaccuum lines on a th350 transmission on a 1984 chevy truck with a small block 350

There should be a steel line coming up from under the truck, near the center of the firewall. The under truck end fits onto the modulator valve on the passenger rear side of the trans with a piece of rubber vacuum line. The underhood end should mount to a factory installed nipple on the rear of the intake manifold with another piece of rubber vacuum hose. If there is no nipple then plug it into the rear of the carb. If the steel line is missing, then get a piece of brake line and use it. The distance is too far for a piece of rubber hose. Hope this helps.

I recently took apart the climate control module on my 1985 Winnebago motor home (GMC chasis & drive train). I determined that the reason I was not getting heat or A/C was because the vacuum tubes...

The exact connection of vacuum tubes in 1985 Winnebago motor home 
The vacuum lines attach to the pushbutton assy. through a molded rubber thing that has probably disintegrated and the vacuum lines are lying loose. Here's how to reconnect them.
Notice a group of seven nipples. This is where the vacuum lines attach. I numbered the nipples in the text drawing below. NOTE: This is the layout as viewed from the front of the coach. Use pieces of rubber tubing to take the place of the old molded thingy and connect the lines to the numbered nipples as described below.

5 6 7

Plug up nipples 1, 2, and 5.You can use  small nails that fit snugly into the holes.
Connect the black line (vacuum source) to nipple 6.
Connect the white line (rearward-pointing outlets) to nipple 4.
Connect the red line (downward-pointing outlets) to nipple 7.
Connect the blue line (heater) to nipple 3.
Check out.Thanks.
Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Where can i find a vacuum line diagram for the heating system in a 1993 chevy k2500 6.2l diesel pickup?

You have a vacuum pump at the rear of your engine in the middle. You need to take off the air cleaner assembly to see it. It is in the middle of the rear of the engine close to the firewall.That is where your vacuum
is created. pull the rubber hose off start you engine and being careful of the fan stick your finger over the hole where the rubber line was. It should pull your finger down. Common to have the vacuum pump wear out. Easy to replace.

Vacum leak 1992 ford ranger v6 4.0l teh leak is a small block that is located toward the rear of the engien on the drivers side it has 4 lines comeing off of it i can see that 1 of the lines goes to the...

If you don't see any line that should be attached to that port just plug it with a vacuum cap. The cap usually pops off when cranking the engine and the engine starts and stalls resulting in a backfire in the intake. If you don't have a vacuum cap, plug a piece of vacuum hose with a screw and put the other end of the hose to the open vacuum port.

Can't reconnect the vaccum hoses to my 4 barrel carberator (1984 chevy 350) because I don't know where they go... where can I get a diagram?

I'm not sure if your engine has sensor's in the thermostat housing or not, my trucks didn't have original engines in them but the following should get you running.
The front lower left nipple goes to the distributor. The upper left goes to the vacuum secondary's on your carb. PCV goes to the bottom middle in the front. EGR goes on the front whereever you can plug it in, the same for the air cleaner. The brake booster threads in the bottom at the back. Your kickdown for the trans plugs into the intake at the back of the carb. Block of the rest and you should be on the road. Hope this helps.

I have been told the air conditioning drains are plugged. How do I clean them out?

(1) Get under truck from passenger side;
(2) Look near front (engine) end of transmission -- there is a rubber pyramid-shaped piece without anything else near it (see picture one). This is the drain nipple.
(3) To clear a clogged nipple, use your finger or a small tool to wiggle the nipple until the mud, dirt, debris, etc. is freed, allowing water to flow out. This water is dirty and may be warm.
(4) Allow water to drain out, attempting to dodge as much as possible.
(5) Check periodically to ensure water flows from the drain line, cleaning as necessary.
(6) Wipe arms off with towel.
