I have a 1995 dodge ram 1500 4x4 with a 5.2 l automatic. There is vacuum line sticking up behind the the engine with a vacuum brake hooked to it. where does that go


Not certain... just a thought... I believe Dodge uses vacuum solenoids to switch air flow from floor to vents and to defrost. Perhaps your loose line is from that solenoid. My '93 would go from defrost to floor when climbing a hill because of loss of vacuum. I hope this helps steer you to a solution.

1998 dodge Ram 1500 4X4. The heater/AC blows out of defrost vents only, I am told this most likely a vacuum line, If this is true where is the vacuum line located.


In the engine compartment, locate black vacuum hose that runs from brake booster check valve to intake manifold, there will be a small vacuum hose attached to check valve at the power brake booster check valve. This is the vacuum line going to the heater control unit,check the hose all the way to the firewall, repair any leaks you find. And that should take care of your problem.......GOOD LUCK

No heat to cab in 96 dodge ram, will defrost.


you might have a vacuum leak, ck the vacuum line to the firewall where the a/c lines are at and make sure a check valve is in it also.

Ac will not blow thru ac vents, only thru defrost vents.


if vent doors are operated by vacuum check for loose or broken vacuum hoses in the engine compartment , or check the fuse box for any ac/heat fuses if it is a electricaly controoled system

Blower goes from dash vent to defroster


I had a 1994 Dodge Ram. The Red Dodge Ram I had it malfunctioned and my brake became the throttle. I had to put the truck in reverse then park. to stop, after it was out of control at 80 mph a hill slowed us down. Are you sure its not electrical and the curse control is not giving you trouble? Mine had multifunction switch was not working and the headlight switch burned up. I also found out that Audi had problem with the brake becoming the throttle in the 1980s Daimler Chrysler and Audi were German made. I don't think there is an easy answer. I hope you stay safe. Another man is having strange trouble also. I'm sure there are many more people with trouble with the vehicles. I wish Dodge would step up to the truth. and recall their nightmares. I saw many of their 1996 Dodge trucks at their dealers shop with all the electrical pulled out.

Loss of a/c air through front vents


You have a vacuum leak. Engine vacuum is used to move the doors that control airflow for the heat and ac.

1886 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab V8 (318) Vaccum Leak


I experienced almost the exact same thing in a customer's 1997 Dodge Caravan this week except on this one,the A/C would be blowing cold out of the vents,directly at you,and when you put the accellerator down pretty hard,the vents would cease to blow,but you could hear the defroster door flap,and the defrosters blew cold air.Let off the gas pedal,it switches back the way it originally was.Wasn't the customer's complaint,but it did make me wonder.
