    I need a diagram oh like all the coolent lines and other hoses and where they connect to. I bought the truck and all hoses where disconnected and now I cant figure out where all of them went. Thank you also do you know where the VMV line connects to
    Expert:  SuperBob replied 5 years ago.

    I will see if I can get some quality photos for you tomorrow. All the reference data on file has instructions on specific hose ends and not an overall look at the coolant hoses or vapor management valve plumbing

    Expert:  SuperBob replied 5 years ago.
    looked all over the lot at my dealership today, no 4.2 liters found. As I cannot locate acutal photo's online, I will look for any customer vehicles that come in tomorrow!
    Customer: replied 5 years ago.

    Expert:  SuperBob replied 5 years ago.

    Once again, no luck! What is the story here, did you buy this truck during a major repair,or did somebody vandalize it? I am still seaching for some quality pics, don't give up!

    Customer: replied 5 years ago.
    i bought the truck when the guy was trying to replace the motor. he decided to give up and i got stuck with the project. anything at this point in time will help me out. just want to get it finished. thank you for all your help
    Expert:  SuperBob replied 5 years ago.
    Do you have the ability to send some quality pic of what you are dealing with, maybe I can walk you through some things, based on what I can see!
    Customer: replied 5 years ago.
    ok ya i can do that i wont be at the truck until friday or saturday night but i will send the pictures. thank you for all the help
    Expert:  SuperBob replied 5 years ago.

    Customer: replied 5 years ago.
    graphic yellow runs to yellow dont know where blue runs to. for the pvc valve that plugs to rocker on valve cover but has 2 hoses off of it. and for the hose you said runs to air intake, air intake is already installed and pluged in so i have no clue what that plugs into. thinking maybe pvc hose. as for this one in the picture not sure where it goes
    Expert:  SuperBob replied 5 years ago.
    If you could get a little farthur back I cannot seem to get oriented as to where in the engine compartment the picture is and what angle you are shooting from.
