Okay I carefully checked all my vac lines and T'* and they look great.

Pulled the connectors loose and checked for corrosion and everything looked fine there.

I am attaching a picture since I have nothing to refer to and no history with these but if you look there is a faint green arrow pointing at this Supercharger by pass valve.

I saw nothing hanging loose but is there supposed to be a line hooked on here?

That port opens to atmosphere. The only thing missing is a small piece of open cell foam that filters any air getting into there.

You need to pull the driver'* seat out, lift the carpet, and see what kid of mess the wiring under there is in.

Ohhhhhhh happy happy joy joy

Yes, I am sure that is going to be a nice mess under there. If there is wiring under there it might be pretty crusty,rusty and swampy (all things electrical connections LOVE).

Okay when the weather gets better I will do that.Now that you have mentioned it, I will be constantly wondering what is hiding under there so that will be good incentive to get some light on it.

Thanks for the info on the valve. I was all excited earlier hoping I would fine the magic line laying up somewhere and just replace the line and be boosting down the road ha ha

I did go ahead and pull the valve off and clean it up and inspect it as much as I could.

Have to go now and take a timed test to hopefully get a job interview (yes now it is clear why I have had some much time on here lately).

Anyhow again I appreciate it fellas. I am learning more and more each day and hopefully at some point I can help some other poor newbie slob like me on their ride

Pulling a front seat is one of those jobs you dread doing, but after its done you realize how easy it is. Four bolts (T55 I think) and some electrical connectors. Nothing to it.

Oh I don't mind pulling a seat just dreading the swampy mess and possible rust in my "new" car when I lift the carpet.

I have all the supplies to treat it and make it right though. Maybe I will find some factory paperwork while I am puttsing around too

Maybe find some "other" things left behind from the previous owner. You can learn a lot about the previous owner in cars at junkyards.

Default Gonna wear you guys out but another question

Hey, so I am looking up the wheel speed sensors figuring I need to replace the whole hub but then I find JUST the actual sensor.

Is it possible for this alone to get ride of my C1234 wheel speed sensor code and dash lights? Definitely cheaper
