I assume you are referring to the white housing that joins the colored dash vac lines into the vac lines of the head unit. You can find a diagram, repair instructions, and explanations at Ramchargercentral.com...just do a thread search on "dash vac lines".

Look for a vacuum line off or leaking start in the engine compartment than work your way under dash usually in engine compartment but could be under dash usually passenger side or on the back of control switch on dash.

Dash vents 1985 heat


Lots of older cars, especially ones without air conditioning, didn't use vacuum controls, but used cables and levers.
If you do have vacuum lines, will have one from engine's intake manifold going through the firewall and into the back of the control panel to a pod-like device that distributes vacuum to several controllers on the heater/AC case under the dash. Several vacuum lines exit the control panel, each goes to a small diaphragm tank or canister next to the door it operates.

My 1997 ford ranger a/c dash vents won't blow


Vacuum supply starts on the drivers side of the engine. There is a vacuum line going into the brake vacuum assist from the manifold. branching off of that line is a double line that snakes under the intake manifold, behind the valve cover, along side the valve cover on the passenger side headed to the front of the engine. Then it curves to the right side of the engine. One set of hoses from this line goes to a valve control (red and green i think). The other line goes to the vacuum storage ball, it should be black. The vacuum circuit continues out of the ball in another black line that snakes into the firewall. It goes under the heater core black box and disappears under it. Now go into the passenger compartment and drop the glovebox. look to the back right you will see a black and a white vacuum line coming out of the firewall. The black line is your vacuum supply from the engine. It goes up to a little rubber manifold. disconnect the lines coming from the dash switch and check for vacuum on the manifold where the black line is going in. The white line controls the cabin air intake under the glovebox and the thermostat shutoff under the hood. It should only have vacuum when the switch is in a certian position, AC probly. The other three lines coming off the rubber manifold snake behind the dash vent door assemble and come out near the gas peddle. The red one controls the dash vent. apply vacuum to the red hose and see if the vents go to the center dash position/AC. The yellow and blue? ones control the floor vent control near the gas peddle. yellow gives you half floor and half defrost. blue gives you all floor. you can use a small vacuum line to connect the black vacuum supply to each individual line on the manifold and check the function of each vacuum control assembly individually. I hope this helps. On my truck each control unit works fine when i apply vacuum to them individually but when I hook the dash switch up to the rubber manifold it goes to defrost. I tried changing the dash switch and the lines running from the switch to the rubber manifold and the vacuum ball under the hood, nothing works. I suspect I may have leak i just haven't found yet. next step is to get a vacuum gage and start checking the amount of vacuum i am getting at each vacuum line. I'm sure it is supposed to be getting a specific amount of vacuum and will not work if the vacuum drops below a certian level due to a leak in a line somewhere? God bless.

1989 Cadillac heat flow system is not flowing properly. Ive got heat low, med, and high the motor is kicking on but its not blowing out at the right strength. What would be the issue? Is there a cabin...


Check to see if the air is coming out of the defrost vents up on top of your dash...by the windshield. If this is the case...you have a vacuum line that has either come loose under the dash....or....the vacuum controller located behind the AC/Heat controller is not functioning properly. ( Tip....Vacuum is what actuates the "doors" inside your AC/Heat plenum...directing airflow straight out front vents...up to the defrost....and down to the heat.....

Heater/ac door actuator isnt workin right. air coming out of bottom and top vent but not from the face vents. keep switchin control to switch vents. only goes to bottom and to the windshield vents.


Sounds like either the computer that controls the auto climate control has gone out or you could have a vacuum leak. I would definitely check the vacuum leak first. I took my 98 Lesabre to a repair shop several years ago for the same problem. When I picked it up they told me my computer was out and it would cost around $600 to fix. As an alternative, they had unhooked and rerouoted vacuum lines, breaking a tube off the controls under the right side of the dash. They told me that they would have to remove my glove box each spring and fall and reconnect the vacuum lines to change the airflow from floor to dash and vise versa. My fix was to run the lines under the dash just beneath the ash tray and connect shut off valves to the vacuum lines. Now when I need to use the AC I can change the flow of the vacuum by simply turning these two valves so that the flow changes from floor to dash or back. I know this is pretty jack leg but the damage had been done and this has actually worked pretty good.

Heating / air conditioning control stuck to front defrost vents


There is a vacuum leak under the hood. Find the vacuum line on the passenger side where it comes through the firewall and follow it to the engine. You system needs vacuum to operate and without it the default setting is on defrost for safety reasons.

Bi-level on heat/ac does not blow air out the front dash vents. It is at least partially vacuum controlled.


Check under your hood for broken or loose vacuum lines. Also, the pot on the hood? i believe, on that one. There should be avacuum line running to it. Looks like a little bowling ball. With your engine running , listen for a hissing.

No matter were I put vent control always blowing hot air


THIS PROBLEM IS CAUSED BY A FAILED PART CALLED A "AIR TEMPERATURE CONTROL BLEND DOOR ACUATOR MOTOR", IT IS LOCTED IN THE AIR DUCT AT THE BLEND DOOR APPROX CENTER OF DASH, IN MOST CASES THE DASH MUST BE REMOVED TO SERVICE THIS MOTOR..

Ac not blowing out top dash vents


The baffles that direct air, heated or cooled, are controlled by vacuum 'motors.'
You may have a vacuum line off somewhere or the vacuum reservoir is cracked or one of its connectors (thin plastic protrusions) is broken.
