That should be the MAP sensors and possibly the HVAC, I could pull up my service manuals if I know what car.

Here are some pics. They are big files, so if you want a specific one let me know and I will e-mail it to you, or can take more at a different angle/ area if helpful

Where can I get the vacuum line shown here? All junk yard ones are broke.

Also I need the vacuum line in the back by the left of the EGR valve. I think it connects the air pump and the ???

Not sure.

Thanks for your help!

Could you take one directly above the rear valve cover showing any vacuum lines...

I believe that'* the HVAC purge valve. Those lines are really bad. I broke mine yesterday, 3 times. I gave up and replaced the whole thing with generic vacuum lines.

Yeah...those semi rigid lines are really brittle. Break it and replace with something thats a bit more flexible.

X2, you can't route that factory line very well.

oh ok...what about the rear vacuum lines? I looked at a 99 Buick Park Ave in the salvage yard and it was different. The 2000 and newer 3800 NA is the same I believe.

Thanks again.

oh btw..this is my dad'* car. Thanks!
