Vacuum lines under plenum/throttlebody

Ive reviewed the diagrams, but I cant follow one of the lines (green arrow) unless I remove the intake manifolds.


Off the Y shape, I see one side going to the reservoir and the other to the check valve.


Where I'm pointing the green arrow in the picture (same hose as green arrow above), are those 2 hoses supposed to be connected together?


Maybe I broke it off while removing the starter??



Thanks for any insight.

Chris

Where does the other end of that hose go to? Iirc, it should go to the solenoid mounted on the fuel rail, left side. If that's it, then yup, I think you found it.
I've never tried to buy plastic vacuum hose like that, but I'd think a sleeve of rubber hose would patch that together quite nicely.

Yeah, those plastic vacuum hoses get very brittle with age. As Maytag says, some rubber vac hose will patch things up nicely!

Brittle indeed, I probably didint see it, and broke it as I was pulling out the starter.

I wasnt really hunting the vac leak, was replacing the starter. So I just unhooked the battery.

Did you mean keep the memory for the code?
If not that, there really isnt any memory that needs to be kept to my knowledge.

Fuel pressure regulator? I think it maintains constant pressure between the fuel rail and the intake manifold.

'97-'01 models have a vacuum hose to the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail. The '02-'04 models do not use it.

You will not lose any important data from your car by disconnecting the battery other than having to enter the code for the radio if you have a CDR 220, or 210. The only data that may be lost from the DME is the recent fuel trim adjustments and that will be created again from driving you car after the battery is reconnected. Any OBD codes or rev data will remain in the DME.
