How to repair vaccumn lines

Vacuum lines typically can't be repaired only replaced.
Step 1. remove a section of line. (take to parts store)
1a may need to remove a hose clamp typically a flat blade screwdriver but sometimes a compression spring type that can be opened with pliers.
2. go to a local parts store.
3. get new vacuum line of same diameter (see step 1)
4. install new line (same way you removed it)

never remove all the lines at the same time, too hard to remember where they all go.

Vacuum hose diagram

The only way that oil can be in a vacuum line is for a hole in the diaphragm of the actuator that it is attached to. There must have been a problem in the shifting or torque converter clutch operation. I hope you didn't go to all the trouble to change the engine because it was blowing smoke without doing a compression test first.

2003 Sebring lxi coupe 3.0 with multiple misfire New distributor (camshaft sensor, coil) New crankshaft sensor New plugs and wires Good compression At idle more rough then when on the gas and seems t

okay, that info is helpful i would have said a coil test but okay with a new distributor it should be good, lets look at the egr valve, with a cold engine start it up and feel the egr tube, this tube feeds exhaust to intake, it should not get hot right away, if it does then egr is open causing misfires, also remove vacuum line from the egr valve just in case it is a bad vacuum solenoid , there should be no vacuum to this vacuum hose with cold engine at idle. let me know the out come.

Why is my 89 ford bronco running so rich

I saw what you replaced, didn't see any testing? Any applicable trouble codes?
Did you use a gage and check proper fuel pressure? My info on that engine size, said 35--45 psi. If the fuel pressure is too high, check the return line. As far as the fuel pressure regulator, do you have vacuum?

Thinking this third hose is the actual vacuum hose that goes to the T near the vacuum reservoir located in the drivers side fender just below the antilock brake assembly. There is a one way valve in the line from the transmission to the T.

Having trouble idleing on 1989 gmc sierra

Low / uneven idle problem can cause by a lot of components.

Dirty air filter

Dirty injectors + o-rings

Vacuum leak at intake manifold and vacuum hose.

Bad Idle Air Control Motor (IAC)

Low compression (170 psi + is OK)

Start cleaning and repair these trouble spots and see is there any improvement.


For more advance DIY'er then you may try this.

Use a can of Berryman carburetor clean to locate the vacuum leak.


This is a 20-30 minutes job.

Vacuum leaks can occur in following locations.

Intake manifold AND/OR vacuum lines.

Intake manifold is not accessible unless the engine head if off.

You can still check the potential leak by spraying some Berryman near the intake manifold.

Listen for rpm increase after you introduce the Berryman (FUEL) at idle.

Do the same starting from the brake booster unit (the round unit) on the drive side fire all.

Carefully listen for increase of RPM right after to spray the Berryman to the potential vacuum spot.

Get a friend to HEAR the ROM increase or monitor for RPM on the tech.

DO NOT AIM the Berryman into any heat source.

PLEASE RATE my answer if it is useful to you.
