I have a 1995 buick Riviera s/c ,im having a hard time finding a rubber s shaped vacuum line hose 2mm maybe ,  the s shaped connector I have slips off the line and trigger my traction control as off until I put it back on does anyone sell a kit with rubber elbows and s shaped connectors? thank you have a gr8 day! looking at the car it sits right in front of the s/c on the right side where all the vacuum lines meet, right below where the engine cover clicks on.... is there a kit a can buy to replace all of them?https://2img.net/h/i63.photobucket.com/albums/h124/Glowinstrat/DSCN3358.jpg

You can replace it with a length of common fuel line. What you can do is take a longer length, like a foot, coil it so it makes one loop and connects the nipples, then trim it to that size. It will look like a snake, coiled in a loop kind of like a snail.

Odds are GM has an SKU for a similar hose that you could trim to directly fit but I don't have that info.

Fix it soon. If you have a vacuum leak in a line, or missing lines, you will absolutely loose boost. The Boost Bypass Solenoid needs vacuum to operate.

You could get short lengths of the different ID lines then couple them with a nipple the correct sizes. In the past what I've done was to cement the larger one onto the smaller one (insert the smaller one in the larger one) with tire patch cement, but I don't remember if I've done that with this hose and can't check ATM (car's not here). You can avoid that by using one or another connector. One candidate is a 'universal' connector such as Needa 473093. It is nylon and splices hoses of same or dissimilar sizes. Another is a Needa 474033, which is a 1/8" x 7/32" Soft Connector.

Your problem is the hose will tend to collapse at the bends under vacuum.

I forgot to mention...

A work-around for the collapsing is to get a scrap piece of the rigid nylon hose and use heat to bend it into shape to form the bends, then work it into the soft hose.  The rigid hose will hold the soft hose open through the bends.  If you do this you can usually get away with just doing the bends as long as you can slip the nylon tubing in. A piece of aluminum tubing, copper tubing,  or CuNiFer brake line would work as well.  You don't want to use steel pipe (common brake line) for such splints due to rust.
