Hi I own an 86 Chevy Spectrum, carb. 1.5L. It wants to shut off at idle and I know its a vacuum leak. I know because there are hoses that got diconnected somehow and are dangling all over the place. I've tried troubleshooting, sticking different hoses on different holes and the like,...theres about 4 of them all together.

Sorry guys I know this is for Camaros only but I need to find a diagram or something that shows me where to put what. Does anyone know a place online? Haynes doesnt make a repair book for my piece of crap car.

There should be a vacuum diagram decal under the hood somewhere.

any place that does smog inspections should have it. sometimes a big backfire can blow hoses off if they are old.

Check my web page for First Gen Camaro suspension info:
