Your little helper: A simple diagram that may help you to solve malfunctions in your TBI vacuum system.
|Model||L03 (5.0L) and L05 (5.7L) TBI engines|
Maybe you know the problem: I've hundreds of pages of wiring diagrams, but only one incomplete vacuum diagram in bad printing quality. If you search the internet or look at your repair manual, you'll find stuff like this:
The image only shows the vacuum lines that belong to the emission control system. Next problem, if you have no idea how an EGR Solenoid or MAP Sensor look like, you might have trouble finding the parts at your car.
This might help better:
The vent port of the EGR Solenoid is the short and smooth terminal. Do not attach any vacuum or pressure line to that port. Keep it open.
The EVAP Canister (Vapor Canister) in this diagram has the purge valve attached (left side, two lines attached) to the canister. Many cars have the purge valve seperated.

If nobody has ever told you…..
Awesome idea Very helpful.

The Red colored Vac lines are a rigid plastic type that will not collapse when under a high vacuum. They also become very brittle over time and heat cycles and crack.
Anyone know where to find these types of plastic lines to replace them?

What does it mean with that green line to tank? Thanks
You have a TBI? The hose should go from the valve cover to the TBI (to the spacer between TBI body and aircleaner). If it’s messed up with oil at this location, you should check if your PCV is clogged.
The green line is the vent line that goes to the tank. You have three lines attached to the tank: fuel line, fuel return line and ventilation. The vent line is missing on cars with ventilated gas tank caps.
Due to a cam change I am short on Vacuum at idle.Is there a way to add a vac pump in the system to solve this problem. I turned the idle up and it runs great. But I have rpm on cold start faster than I like.Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks for looking.

@ George Elliott
I’m sorry, I’m a bit lazy reviewing the comments and sort out the “buy viagra", “buy addidas", “Trump is the best president ever” comments…
I promise, I’ll check the comments more often.

87 tbi I’m building up pressure in my gas tanks and gas is coming up to the fuel evaporative canister and flowing out the air vent on the canister, was reading a thing that told me I could plug the purge line and the tank line to bypass the canister, but that makes the gas flow out the gas fill caps,,,,when you open the caps ,,, can you help me please
