Icon5 Vacuum lines

I'm NOT starting another idle thread!!

HOWEVER, the idle is slowly getting worse, and I think I'm at the point where instead of checking for vacuum line leaks, I'd rather just replace all the vacuum lines.

Is there a diagram available that shows where all the vacuum lines are? What size line should I purchase, and how long?

I'll check the DIY section, but I haven't had much luck with previous searches.

Tnx,

Is this correct?

Are all the dark lines representing the vacuum lines?

Re: Vacuum lines

Looks like it yes. Describe your "bad idle"

Re: Vacuum lines

Bad idle happens after 'lude has warmed. I will be driving, it doesn't matter if on highway or on back streets, approaching a stop sign or stop light, downshift 5,4,3,2, watch tach get down to 1300 or so then push the clutch in all the way. Revs will drop to almost zero for a few seconds, then slowly, ever so slowly inch up to 500 RPM for a moment or two. After that, it will bounce between 500 RPM and 750 RPM until it's time to go. When I put it in first gear, wait for my turn/time to go, I get a herky-jerky launch, regardless of whether I accelerate quickly or gradually.

Don't know if it matters, or not, but this issue did temporarily disappear (for about an hour or two) after I disconnected the battery while starting the fog install (still not finished, and my cruise control light has disappeared.)

Re: Vacuum lines

Tonight, the engine kept wanting to die. Nervous about driving to work, tomorrow.

Re: Vacuum lines

Hopefully, I will get the fogs installed, and the tune-up (finally) done.

I was going to adjust the FITV, until I learned that '96 and later models don't have one. LOL.

Already cleaned the IACV - that was a two-inch putt.

I think all that's left are the vacuum lines, after the tune-up. If that doesn't fix it, I'll see what else to do in the DIY section.
