Question about Isuzu Pickup

2 Answers

I am replacing the vacuum hoses on my isuzu truck. I am doing it one at a time, but I have one port that I cannot find.....the small hose that comes off the bottom of the air cleaner. I think that what I need is a diagram of the whole vacuum hose system.

    I believe that the photos you sent me are for a fuel injected engine. Mine has a carb. It is a 94 Isuzu 2.3 engine.
    Let's try again.
    I tried to communicate back to the first man who was assigned, but I could not find a page to do so.

    The solution was helpful, but did not solve the problem. I was able to get a good diagram from Auto Zone online for the vacuum hoses.

A vacuum hose on my car is caped off and i need to know were it gose to. it is located on the intake manifold on the pasenger side in between the intake ports., a small hose coming out of the side

It may simply be a plugged port, or it may be where a previous owner removed an accessory of some kind. If the vehicle is working correctly, keep the port plugged and try no to obsess about it.

94 plymouth acclaim -two vacuum hoses coming off brake are not hooked up ?

If it is the check valve on the brake booster, the large hose goes to a vac port on the intake manifold, the small hose goes to the cruise control servo.

My 1987 isuzu trooper ii idle is up & down, I changed new carburator, new cup rotor, new rotor, new spark plug, new spark wire and all vaccum hose been replaced the problem are still the same

You have replace everything in the ignition system, but you failed to mention the the vacuum advancer valve, the round metal, beside the distributor and has a vacuum hose.
Seems like a vacuum leak in that area.Have your engine check by a tech w/ timing light and adjust the timing.
Hope that solved the problem.

There is a hose that comes out of the distributor where does it go

it is probably a vacuum line. It should hook to a vacuum source like the intake manifold or the base of the throttle body

94 isuzu pickup loping idle problem

I have a 91 pickup with the 2.3 engine. The problem that you are having is likely the same problem I have - and it is caused by the Mixture Control Valve. It is a white plastic barbell shaped device in a holder on the inside fender wall. There are two vacuum hoses going to it - one small diameter and a larger one. Air enters the bottom of the valve and is drawn through the larger hose. The amount of vacuum on the small hose regulates the amount allowed through the large hose. I haven't found one at a parts store nor have I found one in a junk yard just yet. The Isuzu dealer can order one, but as the parts guy said, "Isuzu is very proud of their part". It costs about $150. If you want to check yours, there are several things you can do: first, run the vehicle and put your hand under the valve - it will **** a lot of air all the time. You can pull the valve off the truck and pry the bottom off the housing. You will probably see the same thing I did - broken pieces that used to stop the air flow through the valve. Until you get a replacement, you can try what I did: 1. Pull the small vacuum hose off and let it lay loose, or 2. Pull the small vacuum hose off and let it lay loose AND block the large hose (or the bottom of the valve). In either case, you have to adjust the fast idle screw and/or mixture screw on the side of the carburator. If you adjust either screw, write down what you did, in case you get a new valve later. The diference between 1 and 2 is that 1 will run good once it is warmed up but will want to stall until it warms; 2 runs good both when cold and warm, but will idle faster than it should. Neither of these will make the truck run like it should, but it is a 100 times better than trying to drive it with the loping.

Where is the low pressure hose located for a/c recharging?

if you look at the ac compressor under the hood there are two hoses, one small and one large, the larger hose is the low press hose, the chargeing port should be in that line or at the receiver drier it goes to.

My 69 chev vacuum retracktable headlights dont work.have all new lines and light switch ,using old original actuators

I believe, the best way to track down a headlight vacuum problem with a Corvette, is to make yourself a checklist, and go through it one by one.

Start at the vacuum source.

1.Is the main hose coming out of the intake manifold getting vacuum?
Pull the hose loose from the Vacuum Filter. (White round plastic object with a molded fitting on each side) Is there vacuum present?
No? Remove the hose from the intake manifold fitting, remove the fitting. Take a stiff piece of wire, (Open wire clothes hangar?), and see if the opening is blocked. Perhaps the carbon has built up here.
Vacuum present? Go on.

2.Remove the hose from the other side of the Vacuum filter. See if you can blow through the filter. This filter is to prevent particles from going down into the engine. The filter may fill up, and be blocked over time.
You can blow through it? Go on. No? Replace it. (Replace items that you have disconnected, and checked to be good, as you go forward in your checklist)

3.Is the Vacuum Check Valve working correctly? The check valve has two ports on one side, and one port on the other. You should be able to blow air through either of the two ports, but not be able to blow air through the single port.
Checks okay? Go on. It's bad? Replace it.

4.All devices connected and hoses. Set the parking brake. Start the car. Disconnect the vacuum supply hose under the dash, to the headlight switch. This hose connects at the back of the headlight switch.
Is there vacuum present? Should be. If not, it's the hose coming up to it. If so, disconnect the hose that is at the back of the 'Pull Down' switch.
(Manual Override Pull Down Switch)
Vacuum coming out of the fitting on the 'Pull Down' switch? Is the knob pushed up, or pulled down? Pull it down to open it. Vacuum coming through? Yes? Go on. No? Replace it. (Should be in the Up position to keep the headlight doors open. You are just testing the switch itself)

5.Car off, not running. Things get a little tougher here. You now need to access all of the front vacuum components, and hoses. The best way to do this, is to remove the hood. I would mark around where the hinges attach to the hood, so that realigning it will be easier. If you have a concours show car, I leave the method of marking it up to. Or, you just may want to remove it, and reset it without marks on your baby. I Fully understand! ('70 and '76 'Vette owner)

You should still have vacuum built up. The hose from the 'Pull Down' switch comes from under the dash, through the firewall, down the left fender well, and ends in a 'T' fitting in the Front/Middle, of the car. Remove the hose from the 'T' fitting. Use care, as the fitting may be plastic. (Or you may have replaced it with a metal one. Smart person you, if you did!)

There should be a residual amount of vacuum. If not, reattach the hose, fire the car up. Disconnect this hose again. You should be well away from the fan, and your parking brake should be set.
(I realize that the radiator, and radiator shroud, blocks you from the fan, but I just had to say that)

Vacuum coming from the hose? Okay, reattach it.

6.Your Actuators have a rod coming out of the middle of them. This rod operates the headlight mechanisms. Down where the rod first comes out of the Actuator, there is a Rod Dust Shield. Under this dust shield is a Rod Seal. The seal goes around the rod, and is attached to the middle of the Actuator. Press your finger/thumb against this seal. Hear a vacuum leak? Time to replace that seal.
Go to the other side. Is it leaking? Time to replace that seal. New Actuators are about a $100 bucks a piece. Seals are a WHOLE lot cheaper!

The Green hose opens the headlight door. The Red hose closes it.
If the headlight switch is in the On position, and the 'Pull Down' switch is in the Up position, go from underneath the car, and push up on the front of the headlight door. The headlight should come up.
No? Go to the door mechanism. There is a L shaped link. Push down on it. Now the door should come up. Suspect a bad Actuator.
Depends on if those seals are bad. If they leak enough it may not be the Actuator.

7.Your Vacuum Reservoir is up on the fender well. If it's the original one it's steel. Check it for holes. These tanks rust through.

8.Check the Vacuum Relays. There are two. The middle fitting on the body of the relay, is where the hose from the Vacuum Reservoir attaches to. If memory serves there is a single hose coming from the Vacuum Reservoir, and comes to a 'T' fitting, then splits off to those Vacuum Relays, for the '69 'Vette.

There is a diaphragm at the end of each relay. The diaphragm enclosure, looks like two pie pans put together. These enclosures can rust over time, and develop a hole for a vacuum leak. The hoses from the 'T' fitting, that goes up to the 'Pull Down' switch, comes to this diaphragm. If this diaphragm is bad, the headlight doors won't go up, or come down.
