I have recently built a HHO gas generator to install in my 1999 ford ranger. The plans I used to build it incorporates 2 output hoses, 1 going in through airfilter and the other connecting in the middle of one of the intake hoses using a T coupling. Funny thing is I can't seem to locate any of these hoses that go into the manifold. Can anyone help me out on this one?

Re: intake manifold vacume hoses
Be Sure your plans are designed for the right engine- 3.0 / 4.0 or even the smaller 4 cyls. The intake hose routing is different between engines. Make sure you do not have any EVAP system problems, this will cause your water for fuel generator to run problematic, meaning your engine may not be receiving the proper fuel/return pressure it needs causing an overtemp situation on your heads. good luck

There is a vacume hose going from the intake manifold to the passenger compartment. This hose has a check valve and a vacume resivore. When you steap on the gas the manifold vacume drops and the a/c goes to the default mode (defrost). The hose is small like a ball point pen's ink tube. sometimes the hose rots and leaks.
It controls the length and speed of incoming air for a certain engine rpm to optimize swirl, efficiency, and minimize knocking.
Most likly you have a vacum leak
check all vacum lines to the intake manifold
check to see if the are cracked burned or just not hooked up
I hope this helps give me feed back and good luck.
Ok.. The code P1400. Is. Related with the E.G.R system.
" Exaust Gas Recirculation"
The code P1400 is Exactly.
Sensor DPFEGR low voltage.
This code can set for.
Leaking up-strim pressure hose.
DPFEGR sensor Short to ground or signal return circuit.
VREF selenoid shorted to ground or signal return circuit.
Faulty DPFEGR .
or In the last case faulty PCM.
Ok.. The DPFEGR is a little box Located at the intake manifold.
to identificate See the Exaust Manifold Gasket you will see.
2 Little hoses Goin at the little box. When you found.
Check the hoses for cracked or damaged repair as need.
Check the connector.
The VREF. to locate follow the Little vaccum hose GREEN.
Goin to the EGR attached at the Intake manifold .
and check the connection.
If everything is OK. I recomend to replace the DPFEGR.
NOTE. If you don't have enought Expertise on vehicles.
I recomed to consult with your mechanic. and maybe give this information.
But if you can do your self go ahead.
I hope this help on your question. THANK YOU FOR USE FIXYA..
SECTION 303-08: Engine Emission Control
1999 Cougar Workshop Manual
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve
Remove the air cleaner outlet tube.
Disconnect the intake air bypass hose.
Disconnect the positive crankcase ventilation hoses.
Remove the air cleaner outlet tube.
Disconnect the tube from the exhaust gas recirculation valve.
Remove the exhaust gas recirculation valve.
Disconnect the vacuum hose.
CAUTION: When cleaning the gasket faces, do not allow debris to enter the intake manifold or exhaust gas recirculation valve. Clean the gasket faces of the intake manifold and exhaust gas recirculation valve.
Install a new exhaust gas recirculation valve gasket.
Position the EGR valve and install the bolts.
Install the vacuum hose.
Connect the EGR tube.
Install the idle air control valve. For additional information, refer to Section 303-14A . For additional information, refer to Section 303-14B .
the hho generator power and ground does not go to the maf sensor. what you need is a maf /map regulator, but it has no connection with the generator. it is just helpfull by saving gas if a hho generator is installed. If you have o2 sensors in the exhaust pipe, you need a EFIE first!!! more questions, no problem, firstname.lastname@example.org, greetings, ****
dont waste you time try to get your money back . ive worked with many of these and not a single one has made any difference. the volume of hydrogen that the generator produces isnt enough to help in fuel millage the alternator on your car cant put out the amperage required to make the quanty needed. alot of scams going on on this stuff right now. just watch your dollar. but since you have it you might as well try it and find out for yourself. i ssen them in the pcv line T in. and ive also see them just tapped into the air cleaner just above the throttle body. good luck and let me know if it works any better for you...
