Is that the pump type thing, with a electral connector and a small tube?

Any way to check it to see if its working correctly?

I love how its not thrown a signle code this whole time. :[

cel?

Im tearing the intake manifold off again tommarrow, this is getting really old. :[

I might try the soapy water trick or whatever, but I dont think I can see if it bubbles in most of the places I want to check.

There might be but I'm not home to check the Haynes manual on it. All I can say for now is to check the wires are good and the connector is on and in good condition for right now.

Apprently replacing the slit hoses is causing the tick. Removing onevacuum hose from the intake manifold stops this. The hose comes from a little electrical elbow woth a place for a plug two hoses and a capped end for another hose. This also runs into a plunger type piece behind the intake manifold. They seem to be working fine unless its electrical. Ideas?

Well heck, that didnt fix it...

Fine till revving, then it made a popping sound and flipped out, through a fit...

:[ It DOES stop the ticking, but doesnt work too good on running, with the clicking it also surges and tries to stall still.

Is it typical for that to just randomly go? The only other thing I messed with was the tee that is on my heather hoses. While removing componants i vacuum plug on top of it and it made a hissng sound and leaked coolant drops until we assembled it again and started it. I dont know if that makes a difference. We didnt turn up anything with carb cleaner though I didnt check the tee.im beginning to wonder if i knocked debris into the engine somehow but wouldnt make sense since it stops when vacuum is removed.
