Look up under your hood--there should be a diagram there.

Richard,
Most of the newer books do not have vacuum diagrams because they can actually vary from car to car. The underhood sticker is the only correct diagram for each car, but unfortunately, they are usually pretty hard to read after 15 years. This leaves you with the option of going to the dealer and see if they can order one for you, they will use the VIN to get the correct one. Or find a shop that has a copy of Mitchell on demand or another electronic service and see it they can print one for you.
Hope this helps,

from what i have seen, the factory vacuum hose diagrams look like something a kid in kindergarten with a few crayons drew up. if you don't have too strict emmissions testing, why not just get rid of all the unnecessary hoses- that would get rid of 95% of all underhood clutter. if you need it to look stock for an inspection, just throw a bunch of random hoses under there hooked to everything and nothing (but nothing critical), just to get it certified.
