Hello everyone,
I've got an 06 V8 and had some codes come on. Mainly lean conditions. I figured I'd take a visual look in the engine bay. I found cracks in most of the hard vacuum lines at the connection points. I would like to know if I should just replace the lines with rubber lines or if I should use the OEM hard lines that were on it. Also it seems hard to find all the vacuum lines that I would need anyway. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Michael

Vacuum lines should be hard enough not to deform or crush when under standard operating suction, So to answer your question, you should use like for like wherever possible.

I found the same on my car, fixed it with a short section of rubber hose that goes over the hard plastic and connection fitting with hose clamps on each end.
