    So my 2000 ZX2 has these two vacuum lines that go into a block under the throttle body with some kind of quick connect push on fittings. I'm unsure if the block is an actual part of the throttle body or the intake manifold, or just a block in between?
    In any case they are vacuum lines and I have not been able to find these parts at all. When searching for the Pcv line I was helped by asking here and finding out that it is not called a pcv line but a crankcase breather line and was even given the correct part number. So I'm hoping to find out the same.
    The issue is these connectors are not seating correctly, causing slight vacuum leaks. My fuel trims tend to fluctuate and when I hold in on these lines they fluctuate much less.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Is there any way that you could push them in and then seal them off? I am just not familiar with the lines you are talking about...

    I'll take a picture. At the moment it's been running okay. They definitely leak a tiny bit. My gas mileage is off for sure but I don't think they are the reason for it. Just did a head gasket job and trying to figure out the loss of MPG at this point. Thank you though

    I saw that nobody replied at all so I thought maybe I could share any knowledge that I have. But in this case, it appears I don't have much of that knowledge. But at least we can bump the thread back up to the top and maybe someone else can chime in...

    Thanks, yeah it's an odd push type looking connector. I've looked online and haven't seen any

    Perhaps the low response rate is due to the generic nature of the thread title.
