Re: vacuum leak?

well the shop definitely thinks it's a vacuum leak, cracked tube or something. 97stepside, so your problem is that you have no a/c at all? like nothing comes out of the vents or defrost??

Re: vacuum leak?

No not yet, I'll try that...it's like they're backwards and defrost will work through the vents?? Would 4x4 still engage if they're backwards?

Re: a/c leak??
