boost control silenoid Empty
PostSubject: boost control silenoid   boost control silenoid EmptyThu Aug 05, 2010 10:02 pm

Okay guys ive been replacing vaccuum lines and seafoamed the car, did plug wires ect ect just getting it ready for the turbo build cuz we have a dyno day at work at the end of september. All is invited if interested!
My question is my boost control silenoid has one vaccuum hose going into it from the vaccuum T that goes into the supercharger for the fpr boost control and the t for the tranny and vaccuum box. Then that vaccuum line goes into the boost silenoid. Then 3 come out of it. One goes like a "U" from the silenoid to the electical connector right under. There is a vaccuum line port right in front of that one with no line on it for my car. It has a tin piece connected to it so if you plug a vaccuum line into it it holds it on.
Is there a line that should be connected to it and if so, What line, from where.
There is no line anywere around that isnt connected to something. I can post a pic if that would help i know it sounds confusing.

Thanks in advance

I'm guessing you have a '95 or '96, so I'm not sure about the rest of your hoses (please fill out your Signature file with your car's info.) The 'open' port with the metal clip on it is normal, though. There was a foam filter there to keep out dust & dirt out as the Boost Actuator breathes in & out...

They are a pain to find and usually require the purchase of a box of 10. You may want to just go with something like this:

Good luck with your Riv.

Go to Autozone, find the wall of PCV and Crankcase filters. Buy a $5.00 white Crankcase filter in sleeve packaging. The style I'm referring to was used in the early 80's and prior for carbureted cars with a PCV system. It's like a 2" x 2" square that you can cut to fit.
P/N AF16 is similar to what I'm describing.

Yes. I do in fact have one. Both of them.
I just didn't question it enough to crack it open in this case.
