Vacuum Hoses all ultimately lead to the intake manifold. Otherwise they won't draw a vacuum.
Now vacuum hoses may go to other parts, like "mini" vacuum manifolds" or T-fittings, or X-fittings. But
Somewhere down the road they all lead to the intake manifold. There may be several place on the outside of the manifold for various sizes of hose. But they will be there. The power brakes are connected to a large hose that goes to that same manifold.
That being said. If a hose if disconnected from the manifold, and there is a hole in the manifold cover where it is supposed to go. The engine will have a hard time idling, etc.
Hope this helps.
Best, Mark

I Had Ford explorer 2003 when i take stop engine shuts off any help?

I have seen many of these die out due to a broken or cracked vacum hose. Look under the hood and listen for a whistling or hi vacum noise. You can also take carb cleaner and spray around vacum hose and pcv valve and intake. If the motor revs up or stalls out when you do this then you definitl have a vacum leak. Find and replace.

If I am wrong about the vacum hose I woulds inspect idle air control motor, throttle position sensor, (both canbe cleaned as a temporary fix) or worst case may be a fuel pump.

Air vents won't move nor will the heat to cool vent move

Sounds like you have a broken vacum hose somewhere or it became disconnected. I would look under the hood for very small vacum hose near the firewall or near or disconected vacum hose near evaporator case.

I'm not sure if i got the egr vac hose and the fuel pressure reg hose backwards?

The vacum hose that goes to the fuel pressure regulator will have vacum all the time and will come from the in take, the one for the EGR will not have vacum all the time and that hose will come from the EGR control solenoid a black looking solenoid with two ports coming out of it.

'06 Silverado 4.8L Air Vents selector does not open and close any vents anymore. Stuck in the Defrost/Feet position.

Look for vacum hose under hook going into fire wall, check for vacum if none add vacum or look for vacum hose hanging some where and reconnect.

My 4x4 won't engage except if u get out and lock the hubs on my f-350 2006

you must have those vacume operated automatic locking hubs that can be manuely locked.switch the truck to 4x4 operation. and get behind the front wheels ,pull of the vacume hose at the back of the spindle to see if engine vacume is getting down to the hubs at all.with the truck running you should have 18 to 20 inchs of vacume at each hose. if no vacume is felt. check the soleinoid behind the right head light for switching vacume down to the spindles. if there is vacume the problem is in the hubs themselves.
