Vacuum. Diagram for a 2002 jeep grand cherokee 4.0


On 4.0L 6 cylinder engines, a molded vacuum tube connects manifold vacuum to top of cylinder head (valve) cover at dash panel end. The vacuum fitting contains a fixed orifice of a calibrated size. It meters the amount of crankcase vapors drawn out of the engine.

On 2.5L 4 cylinder engines, a fitting on drivers side of cylinder head (valve) cover contains the metered orifice. It is connected to manifold vacuum.

A fresh air supply hose from the air cleaner is connected to front of cylinder head cover on 4.0L engines. It is connected to rear of cover on 2.5L engines.

When the engine is operating, fresh air enters the engine and mixes with crankcase vapors. Manifold vacuum draws the vapor/air mixture through the fixed orifice and into the intake manifold. The vapors are then consumed during combustion.

Glow plug location

it can be one located in the air intake manifold that ignites the diesel and this is drawn into the chambers or there will be one for each cylinder located next to an injector in the head. Normally there is a flat bar connecting each glo-plug but if the inlet manifold makes that difficult then there will be one heavy gauge wire connecting each plug.

I have a 97 buick lesabre with six cyl. It surges at stops then crawls. The mechanic cant figure it out. Any ideas? Thanks

Mechanic has probably already checked, but a vacuum gauge connected to manifold vacuum should show if there is a vacuum or air leak from the intake manifold.

Where is intake,mafsensor,iac valve,andthe idle stabilizer valve located

Assuming it is a 4-cyl, the intake is the large tube connecting the air cleaner housing to the intake manifold, which is the metal body behind and above the top of the engine. See here, p2, p40. p168

The Mass Air Flow sensor if fitted (not all Camrys had one that early) is fitted in the air intake just after the air cleaner and before the throttle body.
If you mean the Manifold Air Pressure sensor (different) that sits on the firewall flange behind the intake manifold. Follow the hose from the air intake chamber, p46
The Idle Air Control Valve is on the throttle body, see p168 and p208.

I don't know of an Idle Stabilizer Valve by that name on this engine, I think it is an alternative name for the IAC valve.

My 2001 cadillac catera es running rich

Hi Armindo, Check and clean the mass air flow sensor and then check the intake manifold for any leakage of air. Check vacuum hoses for cracks, loose fitting or damaged connections. Also check the manifold for leakage. Regards John

Temp gauge does not move. Heat works. No Coolant leaks. Coolant level appears normal.

your thermostat is bad

heres how to fix it

  1. Drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove the air cleaner.
  3. Remove exhaust crossover pipe.
  4. Disconnect the surge tank line fitting from the coolant outlet.
  5. Remove the thermostat housing to intake manifold bolts.
  6. Remove the thermostat housing outlet and thermostat
  7. Clean the mating surfaces.

To install:
  1. Install the thermostat and housing outlet.
  2. Install the thermostat housing bolts. Tighten the thermostat housing bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  3. Install exhaust crossover pipe.
  4. Connect the surge tank line fitting to the coolant outlet. Tighten the fittings to 15 ft. lbs. (21 Nm).
  5. Install the air cleaner.
  6. Fill the cooling system.
  7. Inspect the system for leaks.

What kind of fittings are use to hook up manifold gages to the high and low side so the system can be vaccuated?

To evacuate, you need a set of gauges between the pump and the a/c system you only open the low side. The gauges will need to have the appropriate fittings for your system. After evacuation to about 21" of vacuum, watch gauges and make sure reading does not change (if it does likely you have a leak somewhere). Recharge through gauge set on low side as well.

Location of low side A/C port on 2001 Lincoln LS V8

2002 is what I have. should be similar

Service Gauge Port Valves
The high-pressure service gauge port valve is located on the A/C receiver drier manifold and tube assembly.
The low pressure service gauge port valve is located on the manifold of the A/C compressor manifold and tube assembly at the A/C compressor.

Where is the high pressure connection for the air conditioner

hi! there,
usually located on high side or discharge presure of the compresor, the discharge service valve fitting equiped w/ cup and pin auto valve ,loosen and remove service cap of service valve fitting,.as you remove the service cap no leak should take place due to it has a pin to locked the pressure on the sysrem . the guage manifold has a host and service port at the end of the host,the sevice port has a tip ball inside port when you connect your pressure guage manifold to test the discharge pressure the tip ball of port will push the pin valve service fitting and opening occued on discharge service valve and the pressure gauge activated and you can the operating discharge pressure.

in your case opening of cap then leakage appear maybe the pin valve was mis aligned or distorted,the service valve was repairable it can repair,but you have to evacuate all freon inside the
system.freon leakage is bad for our environment
use evacuating pump and service tank,after the freon evacuated repair service valve there is pin remover to pull out pin valve sometime cup has pin remover or ask on car air service center.the pin valve has screw type spring attachment replace pin valve and recharge the system you can use the previuos freon on service tank evacuated.
