Hot air intake pipe not connected to stove pipe
Posted 07 March 2005 - 07:43 PM
Been meaning to ask about this for a while now. The hot air pipe is not in good shape, busted in quite a few spots and not connected to the stove pipe. What kind of problems am I likely to run into and assuming I buy a new pipe where is the stove pipe that its supposed to connect to, I cant figure it out from my haines manual.

Your Y pipe should have a small tube rising up from around just before the cat.on the passenger side.One end of the flex tube goes on there...other on the airbox...you know the deal.
Ive found a rubber pipe in that area which isnt connected to anything it blows air when the engine in running is this it?

the only thing not having the air cleaner heater tube hooked up to the exhaust, is that it'll take a bit longer to warm up. i never have them hooked up

If it's a large diameter hose it probably goes to the "trombone" pipe at the top of the intermediate pipe (longer mid-pipe) just rear of your tranny.
Its about 1/2 an inch or more in diameter, and maybe 6 inches or so is coming out of the body work. Will have a look for that trombone pipe and see if it goes there.
