Intake Manifold Question
Posted 27 August 2006 - 11:25 PM
The intake manifold doesn't have the 3 hose thermo regulator valve at the rear, nor the solenoid valve on top.
I got everything connected and it started but ran really rough while cold, and didn't hold idle well when warm either. I heard a hiss and discovered a fitting at the back of the throttle body. It looks like a perferated bolt, there is no hose barb, its possible one could have been broken off at some point, but it seems awfuly smooth for that. I put my finger over the hole in the fitting and everything smoothed right out. I popped in a threaded plug from an old manifold and it runs fine.
What is this fitting? Does it need a different fix?
I don't have the vac diagram for this manifold. I can't use the old manifold because its cracked.
A smaller concern is the connection of the vaccuum line at the air intake. The new engine has a single "L" which connects to the vaccuum line with the flow valve. The old engine had a "T" fitting coming out of the intake with an additional line running to the canister. I left the "T" connection, but I don't think it matters much, right?
I'm not getting any error codes,but I'd like to be a little more sure before I take it out for a road test.
I've pulled a ton of info off this board searching, but this one I have to ask.
