Customer Question
about your issue? Customer: I am...
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I am reinstalling the intake manifold on a VolvoXC90 6 cyl. There is a hose connection on the top of the intake manifold. It looks like 10 cm. I can not find a hose for this fitting. What does it supply vacuum to? If the hose is just missing I can replace it if I knew where it went.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Volvo Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.If you can tell me what year your XC90 is I will have a look at the diagrams and see if I can help you find the hose that fits the port on your intake. Post back when you can with the year and we can work from there.

2003 Volvo XC90 dual turbo 2.9. The vacuum line that attaches on the top of the intake manifold on the hump directly over the throttle body. What does it go to?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Such a simple question. I am a retired mechanic. A little embarrassing.
Volvo Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
Hose that connects to this port comes from under the intake, Volvo also has a service bulletin for the steps to replace this hose. See the bulletin in the links below. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Hose%20Intake%20Apr%2019.pdfIi have also enclosed the intake removal steps in the link, it will show you the hose as well.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Intake%20Manifold%20APr%2019.pdf

None of that answers the question. Where does it go? other than "under the manifold"? The other stuff all goes to the banjo bolt under the manifold. This does not appear to be part of the PCV system, which seems to get Vacuum from the banjo bolt.
Volvo Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
If you look at the service bulletin in shows you where it comes from as well as where it connects to the port you are showing in your diagram.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
NOT IT. The PDF docs show the nipple on the top but the hoses described go to the banjo bolt which is also shown. Where does the other end of the hose/tubing/line attach? The nipple shown is associated with the banjo bolt and it makes no sense to attach a hose from the top of the manifold to the bottom.
Volvo Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
Okay unfortunately thats all the information I have on this one, I will open the post back up for you and perhaps someone else has what your needing. If they can help they will post back right away.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
All the pictures show the hose from the top nipple disappearing between the intake manifold and the engine going where?By the way the three vacuum hoses that attach to the banjo bolt on the bottom of the manifold are all accounted for, the vacuum hose from the top of the manifold is not one of them.

Hello, My name is ***** ***** I am a Volvo dealership technician. I am going to help with your question today. The hose that goes to that vacuum port goes to a little black vacuum check valve located near the starter motor under the intake.
Ask Your Own Volvo Question
Volvo Mechanic: Andy, Volvo Expert Technician replied 1 year ago
Sorry, the check valve is a greyish white on the T6. I'll try to take a picture of one at work if you are unable to locate it. Let me know if you find it.
Ask Your Own Volvo Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
OK I can get to it in a little while, do you know what the check valve supplies with vacuum?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I see two check valves; the smallest line attached to the banjo bolt and also the line attached to the end of the manifold. I will look harder this afternoon Mountain time.
Volvo Mechanic: Andy, Volvo Expert Technician replied 1 year ago
If you could attach a picture of the area above the starter, I could edit the image to point out what you're looking for. Unfortunately we don't have a T6 on the lot right now.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Here are some pictures. You have to be familiar with the engine to make out anything.

Andy,
If you could tell me where the hose goes, I can supply the hose and check valve.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Still in a quandary and we have a road trip. The old truck will have to do the miles. Volvo question still not really answered yet but I have faith. It may be a few days before I can check in.
Volvo Mechanic: Andy, Volvo Expert Technician replied 1 year ago
I'm sorry, there was a site issue preventing me from being able to read replies. It seems to be back to normal now. I looked at the images, and I don't see the connection. We still do not have a T6 on the lot for me to take some pictures of but I will keep checking daily.

Volvo Mechanic: Andy, Volvo Expert Technician replied 1 year ago
I found a picture elsewhere on the net that may help. I also edited one of yours that I believe shows part of the hose. Click here for the edited version of your picture. Note the red arrow on the right side of the picture. Click here for the picture I found on the web. The red arrow shows the hose going to the check valve. The check valve is indicated by the yellow arrow.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Never got an answer to where it goes. The pictures did not help me.
Volvo Mechanic: Andy, Volvo Expert Technician replied 1 year ago
There is a red arrow on your picture pointing to the hose. It tees in from the purge valve

That line gets vacuum from the banjo bolt in my T6
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It is a 10 mm barb and the line in the picture is smaller
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Is there no diagram of all the vacuum lines in this Volvo? Seems there are separate diagrams for PCV, and Turbo stuff but no interconnections and several check valves. There are 5 vacuum connections on the intake manifold and some of them split off to make more vacuum lines. Surely there is a diagram somewhere.
