I noticed that in my '87 T there are two connectors on the Throttle body for vacuum. One had a hose that goes to the distributr car to retard timing when boosting, but the other has no hose on it. I think there was a hose there, but I can't remember where it used to go.

I noticed this after my car increased a bit the idle, aout 1200 instead of the ususal 800rpm.

BTW, I also noticed that it's much easier to suck trought those connectros than blowing air into. Is it normal?

Thanks for the replies.

I have no advice here, but I just like thinking about "vacuum liMes." I'm picturing small green citrus fruits sucking everything up...

(Needless to say, Stefano, this is not a poke at your English. I realize it was just a typo. I'm sure your English is much better than my Italian...)

Your message was several days ago, so you've probably got it sorted out by now.

In case you haven't, here's my suggestion - there is usually a vacuum line from the throttle body to the EGR valve, via a temperature controlled valve screwed into the block underneath the inlet manifold.

I recently saw another '87, the plug was capped in that one.

I think I have to get it capped, but idle isn't high anymore and the car runs so sweet that I always forget to.

Thanks for the advices anyway.
