As Per the rules: Please provide questions in the following format: 1) Y/M/E, (year/model/engine) 1995 LX Sport 1.9L 2) detailed description of the problem - Broken vacuum hose for HVAC 3) what you have tried so far. - Nothing except capping off the line so I don't have a vacuum leak. This is for that vacuum line that goes through the firewall (really connects to an adapter at the firewall, on both sides, but... I've noticed for cars with vacuum operated HVAC door (for air r- circulation on 1994-ish and newer Escorts) use a thin hard plastic vacuum line instead of a regular vacuum line, with adapters at both ends. Mine has broken, so no recirculated air for me for now! But is there any reason why I can't just use a regular vacuum hose? I figure that or find a way to shorten my existing hose a little, since it is broken at the end.
